IPS Performance Testing (pointer to article) Jul 26 2010 04:15PM
Joel M Snyder (Joel Snyder Opus1 COM)
I don't normally shill my own stuff, but this article came out today and
it is entirely apropos to the discussion we have been having about IPS
performance testing (although I wasn't thinking 10G when I wrote it, I
admit).

"IPS performance is something you can't afford to get wrong.
Unfortunately, performance is difficult to test, and the results are
almost as hard to describe. As IPS moves further up the network stack,
performance becomes highly data-dependent. This is different from what
we're used to witnessing in the world of switches and routers, where
performance is easy enough to describe. ..."

Apologies to anyone who is offended by the pointer.
