Drastic drop in concurrent connections for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

Indeni will alert when a drastic drop is detected in the number of concurrent connections.

Remediation Steps

Each device has a limit for concurrent sessions or connections based on the hardware capacity. Exceeding this limit will cause traffic drops. Review why this may be happening.

How does this work?

indeni uses the built-in Check Point "fw ctl pstat" command to retreive the current usage an limit.

Why is this important?

It is possible to set a limit on how many connections a device can support. If the limit is reached, no new connections are allowed and this usually results in traffic loss.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually run the command.
