ASA 5550 A/A failover

Unanswered Question
May 19th, 2010


When ASA is configured in A/A failover, is it possible to reach 2Gbit/s throughput (1Gbit/s over each ASA) or limitation is set on 1Gbit/s total?


I have this problem too.

I'm not going to give you exact numbers and will refrain from understanding what kind of testing you would like to do and how the test is set up.

I will say this however,

it is expected to achieve almost doubled performance while using A/A failover compared to a single unit in active by carefuly balacing traffic between units. Remember that some overhead is expected and actual results may depend on how you're testing and physical connectivity.
