Almost maxing ssl decryption settings


We own a PA-2050 running version 5 of the pan os in a school.

I have recently noticed that we are now approaching the ssl decryption limits of the device. i.e. 977/1024.

Previously I didn't know that there was such a limit.

What is the best method to reduce this number?

Are you decrypting all or "ANY"?

I used the command to temporary disable SSL decryption:

set system setting ssl-decrypt skip-ssl-decrypt no

for my home lab (PA-220).

But at school (English-German school in New Orleans), we have an old PA-2050 and I'm not sure what to do with it. Is it possible to get it licensed again?

It is not. That device went end of life at the end of April.

Also the newer models are better and faster :).
