Looking thru the ASA spec sheets I really don't see a "real world" performance metric. For instance, Cisco claims 500Mbps multiprotocol stateful inspection througput for the 5512-X. So let's say my Internet connection is 20Mb. Does the amount of users behind the ASA matter? The Internet pipe is _way_ smaller than the ASA throughput so I would think user count is a non-issue. Does this mean that as long as my Internet pipe is less than 500Mbs I am OK with a 5512-X?
I imagine that I am oversimplying things here a bit but in general, what paramters should I take in account when sizing my box?
