WF-500 - 7000 files\day? That is really the limit?


According to wf-500 wildfire appliance document the machine supports 7000 files per day.
In my organization the machine actually scan more then 15,000 per day so how this is really work?
I see that the memory is always around 75% but the Cpu is only 3-5%.
Does anyone can explain me how this 7000 files\day limit actually work?

Palo firewall datasheet shows worst case cenario and firewalls usually do better. For example datasheet values have been tested with small packets and with normal packets your throughput is usually higher than in datasheet.

I guess it is same case here - 7000 is minimum that Palo commits to.
