Improvements tighten Lucent's Security Management Server

Mike Fratto tested a beta version at the Syracuse University Real-World Labs and was impressed.

For his tests, he used a Brick Model 300 with seven 10/100 Fast Ethernet interfaces. He assigned three interfaces to the public and private zones and he configured the zones with IP addresses in separate subnets, which forced the Brick to route traffic. To generate HTTP traffic, he used Caw Networks' WebAvalanche 1800 and WebReflector to simulate Web users and Web servers. He created a transaction using an HTTP 1.1 connection to grab a 5,800-byte file. He ran each test for more than an hour to generate 20 million sessions, and, though he didn't run exhaustive performance testing, the system generated more than 8,000 transactions per second before overrunning the 300 Mbps offered by the three private Fast Ethernet interfaces.
