Is there a way to check/monitor PA advertised throughput values for the following. Now since the new firewalls are out, PA sales are pitching for upgrades and management wants to know the numbers.
App-ID firewall throughput
Threat prevention throughput
IPSec VPN throughput
Connections per second
SO the only way that the firewall would actually account for this on its own would be through DP values, or you could simply utilize a sole 10Gig interface as testing and flood that interface. From personal testing though Palo Alto's published numbers are pretty much exactly what you're going to get.
You literally measure the throughput of the device with that feature enabled, generally with a set packet size. That's why you won't really be able to measure this on a set box. These numbers are generated with the set feature turned on using a set packet size and throughput is measured until you max the box. Then those numbers are published.
