    Sizing web gateway for a customer environment

      I'd like to know the requirements of Web gateway(ver.7.1.0.7)

      Please tell me about the following requirements.

       

      The number of users is 1000 persons.

      Redundant configuration and HTTP virus checking and URL filtering are perfomed.

      HTTP is a maximum of 30Mbps, and is HTTPS 170 Requests(a throughput is unknown).

       

      Another pattern the number of users is 3200 persons.

      Redundant configuration and HTTP virus checking and URL filtering are perfomerd.

      HTTP is a maximum of 100Mbps,and is a HTTPS 550 Requests(a throughput is unknown).

       

      Thnk you for your corporation!

          Hello Imamura-San,

           

          The values seem pretty high for the number of users.

          Just based on the HTTP bandwidth and the HTTPS requests, the 1k users opportunity would require a single WBG-5500B appliance

          Whereas when we go by just 1000 users and estimate the requests per seconds based on our measurement, it would require a 4500B appliance. in a worst case scenario.

           

          The same applies to the 3200 users scenario.

          Based on the mix of  HTTPS req/sec and the bandwidth fro HTTP, it'll need 2 5500B appliances.

          Going by users, we end up with 2 5000B appliances worst case.

           

          I suggest to work with our local McAfee team to derive to the best sizing values.
