If you have a large CMP configuration using Advanced Detection and rate limiting with a low rate limit applied, the per-core rate limit on attack traffic can end up being lower than the desired overall rate limit.
Overall rate limit is lower than expected.
This was seen during internal testing with a large number of cores (3 blades / 24 cores) and a very low rate limit applied.
Improvements were made to rate limiting in environments with a high number of tmms
