Hi:

Does anyone know about a document in which is specified who may ACE rules are supported in an ASA5585-SSP-20?

I need to compare this an other several specification versus a FWSM. I found the information for the module, but not for the ASA 5585-X..

In the data sheet this information is not specified

Thank you very much

Hello Marco,

That is because the FWSM does have a limit,  I have not seen any limit on the ASA, The asa does support way way way more than the FWSM, I have not seen any limit  yet but I have heard that it will let you know as  soon as is full of ACL's or you will start seeing a degradation of the performance. Anyway dude you have an 5585, that is a giant and amazing box You are more than safe.

Hope this helps

Thank you Julio. That is exactly the problem, we had perfomance issues with the FWSM, mainly because of the number of ACEs soported by this module. So we need to probe that the ASA supports much more than this.

Thank you again.

Hello Marco,

I can ensure you that it does, the ASA has no limit.

Ok, Ok. Julio.

Just another quick question. I am having issues trying to load the configuration of this ASA in ASDM. In CLI we do not have problem, but ASDM is no able to load the configuration. I have found some documentation and I has set the use of memory to 1GB, but with the same result. Do you think this an ASDM issue or it is related with the resource of my laptop. I have tried in to different laptops with the same result.

Regards,

Marco

Hello Marco,

What do you mean it's not able to load the configuration.

Are you able to connect to the ASDM? Do you get a prompt?

Regards,

Julio
