Officially, we're not allowed to share those details.
I've never quite understood why people consider it relevant information.
Even for sizing Open Servers (the most common response), the other components in the system can have just as much of an impact on overall performance.

Hi, tks for your answer.
I've experience just with open servers, with firewall and ips blade active.
During tests i noticed that:
With the same firewall throughput (0,4 Gbps) and 1500client,  if enablig both IPS client end server rules, the cpu usage increase up to about 60% instead of having just IPS server rules on.

I would schedule an appliance upgrade with IPS (client+server), antibot, antivirus, https inspection and so on. I would contain costs and at the same time have a durability of about 5, 6 years. 

Obvioulsy i would avoid the situation of a h24 90-95% cpu load.

Watching at the appliances with just throughput distinguishing, I'm, not able to have enough informations to decide witch one is better.

I think that the cpu information may be useful to, at least, SUPPOSE if would be a great choice or not (if , for example, the 6200 cpu has about the same, 5x, 10x speed of my openserver processor) 

Also, production experiences would be appreciated 🙂

Many thanks

Marco
