The proxy users are causing this. Proxy users are running local
processes on the
firewall (for each proxy user, a telnet or ftp session [process] is
running on the firewall).
SOCKS is more efficient than proxy [processes are not created for each
session] and you should
be able to increase the number ofusers going through the firewall at
once. NAT/Filters is even
more efficient yet, but you would need to be at v2 of the firewall code
to have that option.
If you are at v1, your best bet is to have all of your users use SOCKS
instead of proxies. Or,
you can get more firewalls, upgrade the CPU, etc.
