Hi ,

first of all, you have to know which bandwidth is used. For best sizing results the Request per second value should be used.

If this is not available take a look at the MWG sizing guide. You can find this guide on the McAfee Website.

You can find the Hardware specifications in this threat:

At the moment i have a problem with the Partner Portal Login. Take a look at the attached sizing Guide. I do not know if it is the latest version. Therefore always take a look at the mcafee Website.

Licensing: If you have any questions for licensing always ask your responsible McAfee representative in your country. There are different license models available. MWG is licensed by user, therefore you can install as many virtual appliances as needed.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

Hi Guys!

 

I read the solution post and PDF but still in confuse...

 

My reality are:

  • about 7500 users
  • between 5000 and 5300 active proxy connections
  • internet bandwidth link
  • SSL inspection + Antimalware

Using the Sizing guide I understood that one WBG-5500-C (a pair for HA) will be able to take care of all traffic. That's right?

This is a 2CPU / 10 cores, with 128GB RAM and 4 1GbE network interfaces.

The recommended for a Virtual Appliance are 4CPUs and 32G RAM.

I'm able to use an external loadbalancer (Citrix Netscaler). So if I want to use VMs with external load balance instead of using bare metal... What are the sizing formula? Is there any other document to help with this?

 

At this time, I'm using 4 VMs with 8CPU / 8cores, with 32GB RAM, and there are some performance issues...
