Threat Emulation and firewall resources

Hi,

Can anyone tell me based on experience what impact on the firewall efficiency has running Threat Emulation blade?  

I am wondering if threat emulation is scanning http downloads, smtp traffic (files in emails) does it have any sense if we have deployed 2 proxy servers for http/s and emails (I know zero day...) . Can you share your experience with this blade please ?

thanks

It will scan email or web traffic, depending on how you've configured the profile and whether or not HTTPS Inspection is enabled.
Most of the emulation work is done on a different system (on-premise appliance or cloud), so the performance impact is not substantial.
