Hi all experts.
Our question for experts experienced with deploying of Checkpoint firewall virtual instances.
We facing issue with deploying of Checkpoint R 80.40 virtual gateway.
Hypervisor - ESXi VMware 6.5.0
Server HW – HP Proliant DL360 Gen8
CPU HW- intel Xeon CPU E5-2670
Checkpoint installation iso file - Check_Point_R80.40_T294.iso
VM general settings
Guest OS RHEL7 64-bit
HDD – 100 GB
Memory – 12GB
Number of the CPU – 4
Number of the vNIC -10
Installation has been completed successfully. But vNIC’s sequence doesn’t match with Checkoint gateway interfaces. For example if we disconnect vNIC – 1 on Checkpoint gateway eth5 going down. This issue has been solved with sk69621. We have found correct sequence’s for ID PCI bus Instead renaming eth’s.
Next step – performance test.
Using iperf we have tested bandwidth. Data rate was unstable form 40 Mbits/s to 413 Mbits/s. In CPview the SND CPU has utilization up to 100%
We decide to move another one CPU to SND. Using cpconfig we have set two CPU for SND and reboot the VM.
Our question is what we are doing wrong?
