Performance impact from enabling HTTP/HTTPS Proxy functionality
Symptoms
  • Performance impact after enabling HTTP/HTTPS Proxy
Cause

Enabling the HTTP/HTTPS proxy functionality can impact a performance in situations where proxied traffic would otherwise be accelerated by SecureXL.

In order to proxy the connection, the FireWall creates 2 separate connections:

  • one from the client to the proxy
  • and another between the proxy and the destination

Because of this, SecureXL cannot accelerate these packets.

 

It is further relevant to note that the HTTP/HTTPS proxy is NOT a caching proxy. It does not cache commonly visited web pages to provide faster local access to hosts on the LAN.
