1. Firewall throughput is measured with App-ID and logging enabled, utilizing 64 KB HTTP/appmix transactions
2. Threat Prevention throughput is measured with App-ID, IPS, antivirus, anti-spyware, WildFire, file blocking, and logging enabled, utilizing 64 KB HTTP/ appmix transactions
3. IPsec VPN throughput is measured with 64 KB HTTP transactions
4. New sessions per second is measured with application-override, utilizing 1 byte HTTP transactions
5. Adding virtual systems over base quantity requires a separately purchased license
