Do you mean establishing a baseline of, > say, parsing performance? Assuming there are a couple of levels of processing 1. parsing and validation, simple message exchange without security 2. level 1 + security processing (encryption, content filtering, etc.) The Network Computing report compares products operating at level 2. It would also be interesting to know what their level 1 performance is -- how many messages per second if they were not operating at level 2. In other words, can we quantify how much benefit we receive from pure hardware acceleration when processing content with one of these appliances -- before adding the effect of the security layer? ======== Ken North =========== www.WebServicesSummit.com www.SQLSummit.com www.GridSummit.com
