Can a firewall show more XLATE created than CONNECTIONS?
Is that theoretically possible to have more XLATEs than the total number of connections?. the reason I am asking, that assuming a Cisco 5510 has have maximum 130,000 total connections, however xlate limit on an ASA is considered as UNLIMITED.
I am designing a large network having multiple CIsco ASAs deployed as multi context mode to cater various networks inside the organization. I want to create proper resources per class. So far Xlate count vs. connection count is not very clear.. I tried putting a very large value for xlate and the firewall accepted it, and still showed the total percentage as 0%
Yes, this is possible. Keep in mind that the ASA immediately builds an xlate for any static NAT you have configured. Therefore, even with 0 connections on the box, the ASA can still have existing idle xlates (in the case of static NAT).
