What is the byte size of bps on the datasheet?

Compare to Cisco, it was mention that the bytes size is 1,204 bytes on the datasheet.

 

How about the Palo Alto?

 

is it 1,204 bytes or 512 bytes?

Hi @Kang_Han

 

Which datasheet are you referring to?

 

the way speeds and sized are measured should be universal across all vendors 

 

eg

 

1mbps = 1024 kilobit per second = 1.048.576 bits per second

while 1MBps = 1024 KiloBytes per second = 1.048.576 Bytes = 8.388.608 bits (1byte = 8 bits)

 

a byte is 8 bits, so anything expressed in bytes is 8* the size in bits

@Kang_Han,

As @reaper said it depends on the datasheet. However generally PA utilizes 64KB HTTP transactions for all of the throughput listings, and the Session per Second is measured with application-override utilizing 1 byte HTTP transactions.

Guys, Thank you for your reply.

 

I 've found the 64KB HTTP transactions on the datasheet.

 

also that i'd like to know about the byte size of IPSec VPN throughput.

 

There were Fireall throughput and Threat Prevention throughput. It was mentioned.

 

But there are no comment about the IPSec VPN troughput.

 

Thanks.

@Kang_Han,

It would help if you mentioned what platform you are looking at; as the VPN throughput on each are all going to be different. VPN Throughput is meassured the same overall, depending on when it was tested it would still be 64KB HTTP transactions.

Thank you for your reply

 

I am looking for the PA-5220 model. But It isn't mentioned on the datasheet.

1mbps = 1 megabit per second = 1024 bits per second

while 1MBps = 1 MegaByte per second = 1024 bytes = 1024*8 bits

 

 

 

 

1kbps = 1024 bits per second.

@RobinClayton oops, you're right! lemme fix that

@Kang_Han the PA-5220 is the column on the right. it lists 8gbps vpn throughput

Hi @Kang_Han

 

"also that i'd like to know about the byte size of IPSec VPN throughput."

I believe all throughput values are tested with the same 64KB HTTP transactions - IPSec VPN included.

 

Thanks,
Luke.

@Kang_Han

@LukeBullimore is correct, IPSec throughput is measured via the same 64KB HTTP transaction method.
