I'd like to hear some feedback from users on the 3050 hardware. We currently use the 2020's and commit times are between 30-60 minutes. We've been using this platform for several years and been through tech support dozens of times on this issue. I understand it's more of a hardware design issue and has been corrected in newer models. For anyone on the 3000 series can you give me some feedback on commit times? We have roughly 300 rules and are running in HA active/passive.
I've got a HA pair of 2020's at my main site, and a single 3020 at a remote. I can download (with a slower link), install and validate two dynamic updates (content and virus) on the 3020 in the time it takes to HALF commit the virus definition update on the 2020's. The 3020 commits config changes like lightning compared to the 2020. The big difference is the 3000 series has more RAM for the management plane and a faster processor. If you can convince management to upgrade your 2020's - do it. You won't regret it.
