Check Point: Maximum Concurrent Connections And Dropped Packets
I have seen this a couple of times before where a customer has reported dropped connections, timeouts, etc. This is a little frustrating to the customer to say the least. When you go into SmartView Monitor, you can see the the concurrent connections in real time. IF your Check Point is set to, say 50,000 concurrent connections, and you have anything above that number, you are going to see some negative results for sure. So, take a look at the screenshots below and keep an eye on how many concurrent connections you normally have. In this case, I had to run this up from 75,000 concurrent connections to 100,000 concurrent connections.
