IPS Capacity planning

What are the parameters other than CPU, Memory and Storage that should be monitored on Cisco IPS in order to do capacity planning effectively. Currently IPS4270-20-K9 and ASA5585-SSP-IPS60 are active in the production environment.

Re: IPS Capacity planning

Kumar, if you have access to the Performance Estimator tool, that should give you the different sizing parameters such as network throughput, or whether you enable Advanced Malware Protection.  By the way, the IPS 4270 has reached End-of-Sale status.  Firepower NGIPS provides much better protection than the Cisco IPS product and is recognized by Gartner as the leader in the IPS market.
