Use software only




What issue are you actually trying to address? When your troubleshooting potential FPGA issues you can change Aho and dfa to use solely software, but by default the firewall is going to want to offload these to FPGA.

We had a problem with high latency on the data plane despite low apparent resource utilization. It appears to be resolved now though. Turns out it was related to QoS.

Thanks for updating us!
