Vulnerability protection

L2 Linker

I am going to activate a profile with vulnerability protection enabled.

I have many rules without TP profile that I need to enable, but I want to know if the firewall can handle them.

What is the best way to calculate how much CPU load the TP adds to the firewall? I need to be sure that I don't exceed the firewall's limit.

At the moment, the CPU load peaks at 50% during working hours.


According to best practice, what is the CPU load that we must not exceed?

Hello @Charlie80 

 

Hello, if here you will not have that problem, to apply the security profiles in all your policies.

 

The alarming CPU usage of the dataplane, in average and/or in peak hours would be when it is at 75% or 80%, and if the average is higher than that, it is time to pay some attention to the firewalls.
