enforcer 6100 question thruput, snmp, root access

Created: 08 Feb 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 3 comments
I have a few questions concerning the 6100 appliance,
Are they any thruput limitation or can this box handle full 1000mbps traffic.
Is there a way to monitor traffic, cpu, memory etc, via SNMP?
is there a way to obtain root access or file system access to the server to manually config snmp in linux?
What are the pros and cons of failover vs failopen, I know you can not run both together at the same time.

The appliance forwards traffic at nearly 1 gigabite line rate - over 930Mb/second - for most traffic patterns.

The next version will send SNMP traps for system  events like those you listed.

There is a way to enter the linux shell, but it's only for use with tech support

Lastly, failopen provides a simple way to keep the network up and running when there is a hardware or software problem with the appliance.  It will keep traffic flowing even if the appliance is powered down.  However, no NAC functionality will be performed.
