I am looking at a system with some 30 SA s, mainly from PIX 501 or 506 terminating on a central VPN3030. What should I expect in tunnel performance for 3DES?
I have seen various figures for the the VPN3030 ranging from a total of 9 Mbps to 15 Mbps. I am seeing significant congestion delays and lost traffic at much lower loadings, arround 100kbps per SA ie ~ 3 Mbps total through the central site. All traffic from the sites is sent down the SA and is a mix of FTP, Telnet and traffic from Oracle Java applet. Is this normal? Am I wasting my time with the VPN3030 should I be deploying an IPSEC VPN module in a CAT6500?
