I have a question regarding FW throughput, assume I have ASA5510 which has a throuhgput up to 300 Mbps and assume that I have 8 interfaces on it (by adding the 4 GE module). Now assume that I need to utilize all the 8 ports, is the 300 Mbps throughput the capability of the whole box or of the interface pairs only; meaning if I have utilization of 100 Mbps on more than 3 port exceeding the 300 Mbps limitation of the ASA5510 in total, will the ASA box fail here or the 300 Mbps is the capability of each interface pair allowing me to have full 100 Mbps on all of my ASA ports?

Please advise!
