Cisco famously quotes max firewall throughput specs on all ASA models, but how do you tell if your firewall is reaching this maximum throughput?
For example, there is a 300Mbps max throughput number on the asa 5510 in the spec sheet. How do I know if firewall resources are nearing max capacity? Will CPU go first? Is internal data plane limited in code somewhere?
There is an interface called Internal-Data0/0. If I watch this utilization, will it show me what I want?
