Unanswered Question

I hate to drag this up and it is definitely a "it depends" question, but, I want to configure the max/embryonic conn information for the ASA5550 that I just purchased and unfortunately, I have no starting reference point for these settings. This box will be replacing a PIX 520, can I figure out good historical information from that? The servers that this box will be protecting are your basic Service Provider boxes, running web pages, ftp, mail, dns. I know that it also matters what the horsepower on the servers are, but given a 40k subscriber customer base and good up to date Sun servers, is there a good rule of thumb and how do I know if I'm off and need adjusting. Thanks for any advice, I would hate to leave them 0 0, like I always have.

ask your server guys for what kinds of traffic they see. Hopefully, they have some sort of traffic statistics that they probably use for capacity planning.
