We have been running Secure Computing's Bess Filter via
BorderManager third party list and it has worked great.
It has recently been discontinued and replaced with
Secure Computing's SmartFilter Category Server as the
third party access list for BM3.8sp4, but now it is much
slower. Has anyone else experienced this? All the
equipment is still the same, and BM is pretty much
utilizing the category server in exactly the same way as
before, so why is it slower? Is it because the increase
in the number of categories or the length of the list it has
to check now has become so big? Any insight would
be helpful.
