In http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/ips/6.0/installation/guide/hw4260.html (Installing IPS 4260), the following is mentioned: The 1-Gbps performance for IPS-4260 is based on the following conditions: 10,000 new TCP connections per second, 100,000 HTTP transactions per second, average packet size of 450 bytes, and the system running IPS 6.0 software. The 1-Gbps performance is traffic combined from all sensing interfaces.
The information in the manual does not include the following metrics: number of simultaneous sessions (not just the new ones) and number of sessions per second.
Can you please provide me with this information? (1 Gbps performance in transactional environment)
