Since I'm not sure how much cross-pollination there
is between firewalls @
com, I thought I'd mention
that lately there have been a number of good papers and tools
posted for measuring performance. All are available on the
firewalls performance web page http://www.v-one.com/pubs/perf
Firewall performance, as a thread, seems to appear in this
list about every month, and I thought I'd inject the pointer
now since the topic is about due for it's periodic rehashing.
Please redirect follow-up discussion to firewalls-performance.
