Management Plane Cores in PA-400 Series

L1 Bithead



We would like to recommend that one of our clients move from PA-220 to PA-400 series firewalls. I had added multiple points regarding the improvement in Threat and Session information, however, one of the most important points for us to see the number of management plane cores on the new model PA-410 compared to the PA-220. I was unable to find that in the data sheet, does anyone know how many cores does it have or any CPU information? 

Thanks in advance.

Palo does not provide what actual CPU is used. E.g. If you look at PA220 has 2 cores for management and PA440 has only one core. This does not mean management of new 440 is much slower for making changes. Same goes for DataPlane.
