Firewall throughput benchmark test?
Posted on 2004-08-12
I am setting up my Linux ipfilter firewall at work but my boss wants me to buy this firewall because he thinks the throughput is much better.
Anyone know of the standardsized way of measureing throughput via firewalls or ids/ips systems?
I want to show him my linux setup is FASTER!! :)
I can see in their brohure they have a claimed throughput of:
Maximum number of connections 16,000
Connection rate 8,000/second
Aggregate Throughput 140 Mbps.
It seems most use the term of Mbps ?
Is there a way they do this standardsized so he can see i am not cheating him?
