Performance Tuning for the VM-Series on AWS

Optimize the performance of the VM-Series firewall on AWS
Make sure that you do the following:
  • Pick the correct AAWS Instance Types for your deployment. For example, you cannot deploy the c4.xlarge EC2 instance type because the VM-Series firewall requires 9G memory with 2 or 4 vCPUs, and the instance type only supports 4 vCPUs and 7.5G memory.
Select the VM-Series Modelsand VM-Series Firewall Licenses for Public Cloudsthat best suits your deployment needs
Enable DPDK using the CLI command set system setting dpdk-pkt-io on or bootstrap the firewall to use DPDK at launch, see init-cfg.txt File Components .
