I would like information about Sizing guide of ProxySG and ASG for Deployments latest version.
Thank you so much for kindly to share.
Latest Exam is "Exam 250-430: Administration of Blue Coat ProxySG 6.6"
The 900-10B's stated MAX IMIX throuput (from the latest sizing guide, which I have confirmed is still accurate as nothing has changed) is 150 Megs, with 75 Megs being the "Recommended" average bandwidth usage. They go on to define this as:
"Typical bandwidth range, at 70% peak CPU load with complex policies, 40% SSL, ICAP, content filtering, the average over any time interval. The administrator can configure the ProxySG to either bypass access logging and limited streaming content."
This tells you the 900-10B can handle ~30Megs, (40% of 75) and in my experience it can do around 60 (but not much more).
Encrypted traffic is on average 55% of a given links' overall traffic and expected to rise 10% YoY
Symantec does sell a dedicated Decrypt Box (the SSL Visibility or SV units). The smallest reasonably priced and supports 250 Megs of encrypted throughput. This completely takes the decrypt load off the Proxy (and is easier and more granular to configure encrypted traffic management).
Hope this helps
SGOS 6.7 is the latest branch. We currently have 3 active branches 65, 6.6 and 6.7 with active development (and releases in respective branches). I hope this answers your query.
Can you check this with one of our SE for your region. I do have a local copy but it is showing date of 2016 and not sure whether it can be shared publicly.
Thank you for the update.
do you have any document proxy sizing guide like forwarding host, ssl bandwidth for each model
1. What’s the current traffic SSL interception throughput – Show me where I can find in the box
2. What’s the maximum SSL interception throughput this model can support – please share me the value
model: SG 900-10B
I would like to write a Bluecoat ProxySG exam, which one is the latest one.
Thanks for your response guys, much appreciated.
Interested in this as well since intercepting SSL connections is getting common and sizing based on concurrent users and sessions is not enough.
Even though the latest version is 6.7.x, but the SCS (Symantec Certified Specialist) exam that we are having as of now is for 6.6.x version.
