do you know the max rules on the rest of the Policy categories i.e. SSL decryption, App Override, QOS, and Captive Portal?

Here is a CLI command you can run on a device to print out the system limits:

show system state filter cfg.general.max*

Some of the output is cryptic but hopefully the common ones are easily identifiable.

Hi Mike,

I have some questions.

1/ Is the number of dynamic ip/port rules limited to 200 on 2.1.x too?

2/ Why is the limit defined?

3/ Will does the number of dynamic-ip/port rules increase?

1. Not sure. The same command mentioned earlier should allow you to check that.

2. Each rule consumes resources.

3. We are considering increasing this limit in future releases.

Hi Mike,

I have a same scenario with the 5000 platform.

Can you please give me the details for the limitations:

Error: Number of dynamic-ip-and-port rules (401) exceeds vsys capacity (400)

I see the command above gives us a general perception of max limitations on box.

For NAT this is what I see,

cfg.general.max-nat-policy-rule

Thanks
