ASA5505 Download / Transfer Internet & LAN Performace

Hi Guys,

ASA 9.1(2)

ASDM 7.13

Security Plus License

I just placed this ASA5505, everything is working as we want, however I noticed that when I was downloading an big VHD image from microsoft, the performance of the Internet drop very badly in the whole network with latency on pings of 250+ ms, as soon my tranfer was done, the pings went back to under 15ms. I noticed also some latency when transfering between VLANS.

I am pretty sure this is in relation of that im am inspecting "too much" , but as a new guy in firewalls, I am still in the learning process

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
