    Web Gateway SSL Scanning Load

    jebotha

      Hi

       

      Is there any document giving guidelines on determining the extra load that enabling SSL scanning will have on a Web Gateway appliance or Virtual Appliance. The reason I am asking is that I have advised that we enable SSL scanning on a set of web gateways, but need to determine how this will affect performance. Also, if I need to recommend memory or CPU upgrades, I need to provide proof why.

       

      I know I can check the dashboards to see the average HTTP vs. HTTPS traffic at the moment, the average memory usage and the average CPU usage, but how do I find out what th effect will be before I enable this feature on a production network?

       

      Many Thanks
