To customize app-id or no

L4 Transporter



Newish user to PA's 1 year now I think.


I came from cisco - ip / port acl's


I am trying to move to app-id nicer easier policies.

So for office traffic I use app-id 

for my prod platform I use applicaiton overide to custom applications, so that I can by pass any inspection . I care more about speed and latency.


For example my developer use artifcatory - http access. with inspection on compilation time could be 5-6 min. with it off might be 60-90sec.  Thats just cause some much traffic is sent. << Actually did this with a custom app-id


so our platfrom is typical  Internet -> fw -> reverse proxy -> app ... I don't want to inspect the traffic.


but I am also happy to relook at stuff.  how much extra processing does app-id custom signatures take..  how do you create custom id's for developer written protocols ?


does it just look at the first x bytes / packets ??
