I was curious if anyone would be willing to share the average
utilization (CPU/Mem) of their firewalls and the average amount of
traffic they deal with.

After working with a few different companies firewalls, I have found
that most are under utilized and often less expensive models could of
sufficed. If you are not willing to share your utilization details,
could you comment on your general experience with firewall utilization.

Thanks

Joe
