Hi Guys,


quickDescription => paloAlto networks physical firewall and antivirus profile for FTP.

Task => Using a script to get/put a file (few hundred kilobytes) from/to the FTP server every 100ms (ten times per second or 20 times per second) . The FTP server is behind paloalto. FTP mode = passive.


Has someone tested or knows the performance of the FTP ALG engine + antivirusProfile in paloalto?

Can the AV engine sustain the many connections per second?

Re: FTP_Passive_Antivirus_Profile_Performance

this is a loaded question that depends on several important factors


this depends on the platform, this also depends on the overall load on your platform

it also matters is if your ftp is starting a new session for each file or has a single session continuously open

#!  Platform: 800 series, not  loaded     << !!!!!



#!  ftpTransferMode: STREAM hence requires a /* data connection close */ to indicate EOF. [ https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc959.txt  => 3/2 ]
