How to display the maximum concurrent connections setting via the Check Point command lineN/A
This article explains how to verify Check Point Maximum Concurrent Connections configuration using the command line instead of the GUI.
Check Point has a GUI parameter to set the maximum concurrent connections allowed in a cluster. This parameter can be found under Gateway Cluster Properties -> Capacity Optimization -> Maximum concurrent connections in the Check Point GUI.
By default, VSX uses 15000 and FW1/SG 25000. If you cannot access the GUI to see current setting , the parameter can be displayed using the following commands:
vsx_1 (X80): [vs0] root$ vsx stat -v -l <output removed> Connections number: 0 Connections peak: 0 Connections limit: 15000 (this is the value configured in the GUI)
fw_1 (x80): root$ fw ctl pstat Machine Capacity Summary: Memory used: 1% (10MB out of 800MB) - below low watermark Concurrent Connections: 0% (1 out of 24900) - below low watermark (25000 is the value configured in the GUI) <output removed>
