Hi Guys,


I have 2x CP NGTP 5800 series firewall running in clusterXL as security gateway and I have a mid-range Smart-1 appliance as the manager.


Currently, based on the CPView output the security gateway is running around 2% CPU usage and around 40% memory usage. For the Smart-1, it is running also around 2% CPU usage and around 70% memory usage.


In addition, only firewall, IPSec VPN, ID awareness, and App&URL filtering blades are enabled.


Here are my questions.

1. Why in the output it shows that the total CPU cores are 8 but it seems that only 3 are used randomly.

2. I want to enable the other features (IPS, AV, Anti-bot, Anti-Spam, Content-Awareness, and SSL Inspection), I would like to seek opinion from you if I enable those blades does the 5800 can handle such processes?


Thank you very much.
