Latency on Gen7

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭

Hi all,

does someone experienced a higher latency on Gen7 devices?

While having my first steps on a TZ 670 I saw that a ping to the appliance from LAN goes from 0.5 to as high as 9ms. The unit is just sitting there, doing nothing, I'am not even logged in to it.

A NSa 2650 or NSA 3500 (for the silver surfers) is responding like any other local device with a <0.3ms even when operating.

Will do further tests.

    Hi @preston

    that sounds OK to me, maybe it's related to this ODP/OFP wizardry in the background, who knows.

    Like @preston pointed out in the other Thread about the 7.0.1-5050 Release, the latency while pinging the Firewall went away, took SNWL only 1 1/4 years 🤣

    There might be hope after all.

    @BWC - Hmmm, maybe that's what they mean when they use the word "boundless."
