Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP vCMP(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:

Opened: Nov 15, 2014
Severity: 3-Major


The performance of a single SSL connection to a guest running on a Nitrox PX based platform is about half the speed of running the same operation on a BIG-IP system. This is due to limitations of the virtualization method used for the SSL hardware on these platforms.


Performance of a single SSL connection is about 50% slower than expected compared to the performance of the same platform running in non-vCMP mode.


Run a single SSL connection such as https curl to a guest running on a Nitrox PX based platform.


This issue has no workaround at this time.
