FWSM fixup infos for mgcp and skinny

Unanswered Question

Hi net pros,

Can someone point me to more information about the fixup engines?!

We have to secure a callmanager server farm behind a fwsm, running version - next week we will upgrade to

We would like to use the mgcp and the skinny fixup engines here.

I was told that last time it was tested the fwsm had 100% cpu load and they had to disable the fixup engines / they just opened a huge range of ports for the rtp traffic.

Found only this about performance, but its kind of old documentation: (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/module_installation_and_configuration_guides_chapter09186a0080159caf.html#wp1039967)

Fixup connections, rate: 10,000 per second.

PC based fixup connections, rate: 10K per second.

We have about 20000 phones but i doubt they all register in 1 second :-) so the performance should not be an issue.

So now I'm search for more performance charts and of course for documentation how the skinny/mgcp fixup engines really work (what messages they read / what ports are opened dynamically / sample setup etc.)

Any information appreciated

Best regards

Juergen Bauer
