I am trying to get myself familier theoratically with ACE before actual deployment, so here are some questions...
First, we often hear the term offloading the SSL to ACE, to make it work on L7 and make decision based on header, quesion arises as to how simple is this to work on ACE at Layer 7 rather than on layer 4? Is it really worthit to go for it, and in which scenarios?
Mutliple Contexts, is there any central way to measure the overall resource consumption done by all/selective context? what are the benchmarks/limitations (not just the count) for ACE module for 6500? Is it prductive/or wast to have FT for each context, or FT is one per box?
Howuseful it is to have http over ssl (i know it depends on requirement, need to know the impact on the box itself)
TCP Reuse, Persistant LB & Header Insert, can these features be used in L4 model, or is it really L7 thing?
Can a single context of ACE be used for multiple contexts of a boundry ASA (i don't know why i am asking for this)
