When profiling traffic for the SSL Visibility 3800B-20 the question of how many TCP handshakes per second can the box negotiate.
Release : 188.8.131.52
Per our sizing guide the SSLv 3800B-20 can handle 14k TLS handshakes per second in a classic segment. After that we cut through any additional hand shakes. For TCP handshakes, the number is different.
On the 3800B-20, 500,000 TCP CPS is possible with an Active in Line segment and 510,000 in a Passive Inline +Copy port. That 500K number is for non SSL, essentially a firewall cut rule, and just TCP handshake.
