Palo Alto really should create an upgrade kit for the PA-500's.
PAN-PA-500-UPG-2GB is a 2GB RAM Upgrade kit for the PA-500s.
I did not know this!
Does it actually make a noticeable improvement in commit times and overall responsiveness of the device? It should in theory, but just wondering if there's a real-world difference.
I haven't had the chance to compare both 1GB and 2GB models under similar loads. There are some discussions here in the forum talking about experiences with the upgrade:
We use the 2000 series firewalls with 4.0.x code. The web based interface is so slooooooooooooooow it is painful and doing a commit takes 10 minutes.
We were also unlucky to have three DOA firewalls (2 had failed disks), you do not supply kit with solid state disks and would not entertain it, so again would like to see this included.
I would also second the post from TNaami.
I would like to have something more to organize the view on ruleset, because the more rules we get the more difficult it is keeping the overwiew. We are using zones, tags and webgui but it is to less.
Documentation needs real examples in every section. Tired of searching on Communities.....
PAN-AGENT sucks. Multiple users confuses it badly.....
but please for the love of packets improve your QA process! Test all the features in the product! Test all the features when every major release comes out!
I love your turn of phrase, and 100% agree with your sentiment.
QA of late has *sucked*. Documentation and QA are my two biggest bugbears with PAN.

Nice to have: Ability to select the threat action from a threat log message - i.e. If a threat is logged ("alert"), the administrator can open the threat log and select a new action such as "block" or "reset" etc. The new action is updated in the corresponding threat profile.
MUST HAVE: SSD's for the win!!! :smileycool: all models
