Interface nearing maximum Rx throughput for Check Point

Vendor

Check Point

Description

The interface is close to its maximum advertised throughput limit. Intermittent connectivity issues may occur such as network performance degradation or the inability to reach resources. This could be due to poor capacity management or user activity such as video streaming or file transfers. This could also be due to unexpected and suspicious activity.

Remediation Steps

Follow the vendor specific remediation steps below.

Check point’s CLI cpview or SmartView Monitor tool can be used to view network top talkers such as source, destination, and protocol(s).

Based on this information, it can be determined as to whether selected traffic should be blocked or dropped. If the throughput threshold reached is expected, consider adding more interfaces or modifying any applicable packet shaping.

How does this work?

Indeni will record the total bytes received, wait a pre-determined amount of time and then record it again. By comparing before and after a value for how many bytes sent during the period of time can be determined.

Why is this important?

Indeni will record the total bytes received, wait a pre-determined amount of time and then record it again. By comparing before and after a value for how many bytes sent during the period of time can be determined.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator could login and manually check this from the command line interface.
