Increased configuration file size to optimize performance
for M-Series and Panorama™ virtual appliances.
The total configuration file size of
Panorama™ M-Series and virtual appliances is an important piece
of the performance metric when determining which M-Series appliance
or the minimum amount of virtual resources you need to allocate
on your Panorama virtual appliance to ensure that you meet your Security
requirements. PAN-OS 10.0 increases the total configuration file size
of the Panorama management server in Management Only mode to better
optimize your appliance and to support larger configuration file sizes.
Increasing the total configuration file size of the Panorama management
server helps reduce the performance impact on the Panorama management
server when performing configuration changes, commits, and pushes
to managed firewalls.
The increased configuration file size
for Panorama is supported only in Management Only mode.
Panorama M-Series and virtual appliances in Panorama mode and the
M-100 appliance do not support this increased configuration file size.
Refer to the table below for the recommended maximum configuration file size
based on your Panorama M-Series appliance or the resources you allocate
to your Panorama virtual appliance.
