Concurrent ssl connections

Hi Team,

Is there any way we can find and export the concurrent ssl connections on port 443 on firewall?

Also how can we find out the current IPS throughput on firewall?

  • Hello @Darshil,

    You can see the current active users and SSLVPN sessions from the GUI, as below:

    Unfortunately, there is no way to export the data from this page. If you have CLI access, you can use the command "show user status" and get the result.

    Also, Full DPI/Gateway AV/Anti-Spyware/IPS throughput is measured using industry-standard Spirent WebAvalanche HTTP performance test and Ixia test tools. Testing is done with multiple flows through multiple port pairs. Threat Prevention throughput is measured with Gateway AV, Anti-Spyware, IPS, and Application Control enabled.

    I am not sure if this can be tested in-house.

    Hi @Darshil

    if I get you right you're looking for the established HTTPS connections, which be either shown by Investigate -> Logs -> Connection Logs and search for 443. The DPI-SSL on Manage -> Security Configuration -> Decryption Services -> DPI-SSL/TLS Clients shows you some additional values about the inspected SSL sessions.

    AFAIK there is no specific IPS throughput performance value, because it's all mangled in once.

    @shiprasahu93 we are asking about the SSL connection generated on port 443. Is there any way we can measure this count in real-time.

  • @Darshil,

    My bad, I misunderstood. HTTPS connections going through the firewall can be either seen under the connection logs or on the DPI SSL section as mentioned by @BWC.

    It depends on whether DPI SSL is in use or not. Destination port 443 can be used to filter the connection logs and you should be able to export that data too.

    Hi @Darshil,

    If you configure the DPI SSL, you can get the SSL connections (Current/Peak & Maximum).
