This Bash script analyzes your Check Point system and provides advanced security, health and performance optimization tips.


The script name is referring to Check Points Maximizing Network Performance guide and Tim Hall's Max Power Firewalls book, which (together with Michael Endrizzi's free CoreXL training) inspired me to start this accompanying project. As Valeri Loukine mentioned in his Gateway Performance Optimization post, it's a tough challenge to master. This script is here to help. At this current, early availability, stage, it's up to the community to fix it beautiful. The script will evolve. I can't wait to see at which stage it might be in a year from now.


To install the script on your Check Point, in Expert mode simply run :

curl_cli | zcat > /usr/bin/max && chmod +x /usr/bin/max

Or download it to the /usr/bin directory of your Check Point and make it executable.
