Security Manager 4.X

Depending upon how busy the firewalls are, we can monitor roughly 5-6 PIX per dedicated agent machines.  NetIQ recommends that there is a one to one relationship between PIX firewalls and Security Manager Agents.  We have the ability to parse 600 events per second with the provider that our PIX support uses.  We have seen a fairly busy router produce 200 events per second in its peak state while most routers average close to 100 events per second.
