blocking netflix application instead of url

currently i am blocking al the urls to netflix.


so when user access the website they get message blocked due to  url


on cli i see PA has to do some processing in order to block the url .

if i block the application netflix instead of url  that will redice the cpu processing on the PA right?

The overhead for looking at URLs is pretty small, and you're honestly already doing it as part of the normal firewall processes anyways. I wouldn't expect a noticable decrease no matter what you trigger on, URL or application.
