This sheet was originally intended to show how much of the hardware resources the Firepower module could access. Later on I added data for older ASA firewalls.


If you find any data that is incorrect, please contact me and I will correct this fact sheet.

Would you happen to know the hardware specifications on the Sourcefire 7000/8000 series devices?

Contributor

Some of the specs at least. If you want me to make a post about it, then I will update you when it is ready.

Beginner

Sounds great! Thank you.

Contributor

I see that I only have the hardware specs for the 8200 and 8300 series.

They have been posted here. FirePOWER 8200 and 8300 hardware specs
