Performance issues on MX100 running versions 16.6 or 17.6?
I'm wondering if anyone else has had performance issues on the MX100 once upgraded to 16.6 or 17.6. We've got an MX100 that runs great on 15.44 but plain internet throughput seems to drop by about half on version 16.6 or 17.6. We need to upgrade from 15.44 due to SNORT vulnerability. This MX100 has content filtering and AMP and IDS enabled.
We've rolled back to 15.44 from 16.6 and 17.6 a few times now and performance always returns to normal.
It is better for you to use 15.44 until the 17.7 gets more time to be tested from the other users. Both firmware 16.16 and 17.6 are not stable firmware even for the other Models like MX450 or MX84. We had last month a lot of problems with 16.16 which included: VPN interruption, High Resource Utilization, packet loss and high latency (and for specific MX model throughput degradation too). So, my suggestion would be to keep your devices running on 15.44 Firmware.
