Cisco PIX 515E Bandwidth Issue
Posts: n/a
I've got a 515E, when I open a single download from a remote source
( at it gets about ~1800KB/s. I open a second and I get
~1800KB/, I open a third I get ~1800KB/s so every connection stays
around there all adding up to ~5400KB/s

I noticed this first over a VPN, when I could only get a max of 1800KB/
s from just one connection, but later I was able to keep adding ftp
sessions and jumping up 1800KB/s per ftp session. It just seems I
cannot get anywhere near my max on a single connection.

The CPU Load does shoot up when transferring this much over the VPN to

Has anyone seen this issue before?

Other ASA's on the same pipe are able to download at 6000+KB/s no

Does this bandwidth issue (particularly as relates to VPN) impact the perceived response (speed) of the Local Area Network? We have 515 PIX and our VPN stopped working sometime in October. Also, a lot of the time our Local Area Network seems excruciatingly slow. Our thought has been to expand (double?) our pipe size but might it be our firewall that is the bottleneck anyway?
