I have (3) PA-500's, and the one thing I have noticed on all of them, is that it takes up to 10 min. to boot. It takes 15 min or longer if there is a new release being installed. What does the PA use for storage, and why does it take so long in this age of SSD and fast boot times?
Under the hood, it looks like it's running a customized version of Red Hat Linux, and being someone who has several RHEL servers that boot up in about 10 seconds, I'm wondering where the bottleneck is. Committing changes also takes a long time.
1g or 2g of RAM, it's not magic. PA500 hardware is now quite old (from 2008 ?).
But just keep in mind it always run the last PA version 7.0.4 what is not so bad :-). More graphs, more feature, more ... it cost in boot time ..
Of course a new platforme is more than welcome, agree with you.
