Hello ,


Can someone know how to calculate manually the FW Throughput ?

it's for a PA 5060 with multiple Vsys and 1 etherchannel to the external network and another one for internal servers.


Command 'show system statistics session' display a low value in comparison of snmp BW value graphs

how system statistics sessions  > Throughput :133965 Kbps


here the IN OUT traffic for Ingress and Egress .


external Network ---- 250 Mbps IN /OUT ------ FW PA5060 ------400 Mbps IN / OUT ----- DC Servers


Could you please explain how the thoughput is calculated ?

Hi kiwi ,

thanks for the web link but i would like to know how the throughput is calculated for FW .

On spreadsheet the throughput value ( without ThreatP ) = 20 Gbs

In order to calculate manually i have to add all receive or transmit interfaces traffic ?
