CP Firewall Processing Behavior

Hi Guys,

I would like to know what is the behavior of the CP firewall having for example 8 cores of CPU but the CoreXL is disabled?

All we know that enabling CoreXL can do multi-processing for multi-core CPU for better performance, but what if we don't enable the said feature, will the CP just use 1 core?

Thanks

You will use two: one for SecureXL and another for FW inspection

Why would you disable CoreXL exactly?

Hi Dameon Welch-Abernathy‌, 

It is just a what if thought and I am a bit new in CP.

Thanks

There were times when this feature needed to be disabled in the past, but it's no longer the case in current versions.

The only exception is when the system/VM has a single core (and thus cannot use CoreXL).
