Looking for some realworld deployment experience.  Anyone that's deployed a 5260 how much data have you guys pushed through it.  Anyone pushing 20-30Gbps+?  How does it perform?


I'm thinking about getting one and putting it off our tapping infrastructure for IPS/IDS functionality.


Hi @licenselu 


This is a known limitation of PaloAlto firewalls. If you do inter-vsys routing then everything is done in software. The only way to get the full performance of the box is if you "think outside of the box": the traffic needs to go out of the firewall and come back over a switch/router to another interface of the next vsys.
