A10 throughput limit enforcement behavior

I'm considering switching to A10 from F5. I have a question on A10 throughput limit enforcement.

Does the licensed throughput limit only apply only to load balanced traffic? Or does this also include passthrough traffic that's only being layer 3 forwarded through the appliance?

    Hello - The throughput limit applies to all traffic which egresses the appliance interfaces. It is my understanding that this includes SLB processing and L3 forwarding. However traffic which is received and dropped (due to policy, rate limit, etc) would not count.

    I would suggest you check out the FlexPool license which offers great flexibility for infrastructure provisioning in both private and public clouds.

  • Thanks!
