Check Point Gateway Cores and FW Workers

Hi Checkpoint experts, 

 

I got a question regarding Checkpoint license cores,, we have this license to allow to use 8 cores in a gateway ,  I understand that is for CoreXL allocation. 

1.) Would this also means that we are allowed to use 8 physical cores in Checkpoint VM? Does the license had an effect on physical or hardware cpu core limitations?

2.) And if we only have 3 firewall workers activated , does that mean we are not utilizing the other 5 cores? or those cores were used in some processes?

 


[Expert]# fw ctl multik stat
ID | Active | CPU | Connections | Peak
----------------------------------------------
0 | Yes | 7 | 192 | 1473
1 | Yes | 3 | 211 | 1369
2 | Yes | 6 | 215 | 1387


[Expert]# fw ctl affinity -l
Kernel fw_0: CPU 7
Kernel fw_1: CPU 3
Kernel fw_2: CPU 6


[Expert]# fw ctl get int fwlic_num_of_allowed_cores
fwlic_num_of_allowed_cores = 8
