Performance Improvements for C5/M5 Instances on AWS
VM-Series firewalls deployed on C5 or M5 instances on AWS that use the Elastic Network Adapter (ENA), now support DPDK. With DPDK, VM-Series firewalls provide higher throughput performance for use cases in manual or managed firewall deployments and elastic scale out deployments. The range of instance sizes in the C5 or M5 instance family that support these use cases include 5.xlarge to m5.4xlarge, and c5.18xlarge.
Because DPDK is disabled by default on the VM-Series on AWS, you must enable it upon upgrade to PAN-OS 9.0.3.xfr.
DPDK Support for Cisco ENCS
For faster packet processing, the VM-Series firewall running on Cisco Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS) supports DPDK on Cisco 5400 ENCS appliances with the NFVIS 3.10.1 release.
