MapType seems to be increase dramatically CPU Usage (7.5)

Is this right?

We'd like to use this at the beginning of our policy to bypass authentication for dedicated client to a list of domains.

We saw the CPU usage increases dramatically (from 20% of to 70%) with only 1 entry in the maptype list....


Maptype KEY:

Matype Value:;;;


The cpu increases without further operation on the maptype value..

The criteria is in list Map.GetKeys(MapType.list) is enough

Is there a faster way without using dedicated lists? (one for IP and an additional one for each ip...)

Any suggestions???

(we use version

Re: MapType seems to be increase dramatically CPU Usage (7.5)

OK some more details....

real strange what I've found so far...

This is configuration which increases CPU load

TopLevel  Ruleset     (no Filter)

     RuleSet                 enter with MapType Filter ( is in list Map.GetKeys(MapType.list))

          Rule                   Stop Ruleset

and now the follwing rule which does exacly the same.... CPU load does not increase!!!!

TopLevel  Ruleset     (no Filter)

     Rule                       ( is in not list Map.GetKeys(MapType.list))  Stop ruleset

     RuleSet              (no Filter)

          Rule               Stop Ruleset....

Not an answer, but curious if this is 7.5.1 or 7.5.2. We use MapType and I've been seeing increased load values/CPU usage since upgrading to 7.5.2.

Re: MapType seems to be increase dramatically CPU Usage (7.5)

yes it is 7.5.2 and we see the only if we do such analyse in ruleset filter. The same filter in a dedicated rule works fine.
