I have a ASA 5550, so the max connections p/s is 33K, packets p/s is 600K. I'm looking to add an IPS at my boundary but don't want too much degradation in application performance. Looking at the datasheet for the IPS 4510 and 4360 the max connections and connections per second should provide that minimal degredation requirement. What worries me is the packets per second (600K) that the ASA can process.
How many pps can the IPS process? I don't see that anywhere in the datasheets for the IPS
