Sizing-Number of users vs throughput


#1

When looking to size for the right Balance model, should you solely look at the number of users even though you will only require a fraction of the supported throughput? Is the number of supported users similar to concurrent connections/states in the firewall realm? Any info is appreciated.


#2

Yes, you should definitely take in to account the number of users on the network as this correlates to more concurrent sessions. The smaller units don’t have as much hardware resources as the larger units.

Thanks Tim. That is what I was thinking but wanted to confirm.
