This advanced session will cover the performance aspects of all Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) products as well as the Firewall Services Module (FWSM). A large portion of the presentation will be dedicated to a detailed architectural review of the hardware and software platform operation in order to identity the performance implications at each stage of the traffic path. Interoperability of the advanced firewall features and the network protocols will be discussed as well. Commonly seen performance bottlenecks will be identified and analyzed. Various performance optimization techniques and designs will be presented through theoretical analysis and practical examples. Familiarity with ASA and FWSM features and operation is required.
