Hi –

We currently have an 8 core open server HA cluster running 77.30 and are upgrading those servers to 16 core servers and R80.10.  I’d like to understand what, if any, CoreXL changes I should make (or perhaps any other performance enhancements?).  Unfortunately I don’t believe I can use the cpsizeme tool being these are Dell open servers.  My initial thought is go to with four SNDs and 12 firewall works only because almost all interfaces are 10Gb.

 

There is a moderate amount of VoIP traffic, no VPN traffic and some IPS protections enabled, no other blades are enabled.

 

Some snapshots of command output is shown as a reference if anyone has thoughts, suggestions or experience with a change such as this.  Thanks in advance.
