Coyote Point Offers Application Balancing for Virtual Servers
Performance was tested using a Spirent Avalanche 2900 configured to generate traffic load on the E650GX. The goal of the performance testing was to rate layer 7 HTTP transactions per second, layer 7 HTTPS throughput, layer 4 maximum concurrent connections and layer 4 connections per second. Those metrics are a good indicator of the processing power of the device, as well as the overall capacity of the device.
Layer 4 connections per second: 160,000 CPS
Layer 4 maximum concurrent connections: 17.5 million
Layer 7 HTTP transactions per second: 110,000 TPS
Layer 7 HTTP throughput: 1,300 Mbps
Layer 7 HTTPS transactions per second: 14,000 TPS
Layer 7 HTTPS throughput: 825 Mbps
