Severity: 4-Minor


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.


Not as many new SSL connections/second as expected.


SSL is licensed with a limit other than `unlimited'


There is no workaround

Fix Information

Resumed SSL sessions no longer count against the TPS limit.
