Can PA2050 report when a bigger box is needed?

I'm trying to find out if it's time to move to a bigger box. Is there some indicator that tells me the PA is becoming a bottleneck?

"show system resources" or "show system statistics" should bring you some figures I suppose.

There are others aswell depending on which PANOS your run

Also repetitive tests on your own should tell you how the system operates. Like if you do ping, traceroute and also access services behind the PAN and compare it to how it worked the week before and such (so you have a baseline to compare against).
