Sizing a azure VM firewall

L2 Linker

Hi Team,

There is a situation where I need advice w.r.t Paloalto VM series firewall in azure. 

Currently, we have deployed Firewalls behind azure public load balancer in Active/active mode. Now there is a requirement where I need to deploy these firewalls in Active/passive and I am confused on how to check the load on VM firewall as they are getting migrated from active/active to active/passive.


What should be the way forward If I want to check the current traffic load and check if I can share the load of two firewalls in a standalone firewall. Do I need to check peak traffic? Cpu cores? disk? Basically how to clear sizing issues in this migration.
