R80.x Architecture and Performance Tuning - Link Collection

Jump to solution

I wrote my first article on R80.x firewall architecture a year ago. After many hours in the lab with R80.10, R80.20, R80.30 and R80.40 many long evenings, another approximately 40 articles were added.
Because I lost the overview of my articles, here is a list of links to the most interesting articles with the topics:
- R80.x performance tuning
- R80.x architecture
- R80.x new CoreXL, SecureXL and ClusterXL functions

I hope I can help you with interesting information about R80.x!
