Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 29, 2018
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

The SSL TPS limit is based on the time complexity of the operations needed to create a new session. A resumed session does not have this complexity, and therefore should not count against the licensed TPS limit.

Impact

Not as many new SSL connections/second as expected.

Conditions

SSL is licensed with a limit other than `unlimited'

Workaround

There is no workaround

Fix Information

Resumed SSL sessions no longer count against the TPS limit.
