Most numbers give in a product sheet are not 100% real-life but a good assumption on FTNT behalf. The thruput numbers will be greatly impact by the number of session , session setup, type of data and protocol and packet-sizes. Lastly, you need to be aware of the various feature from a UTM standpoint.
So how do we get real life thru-put numbers ?
That question has no real answers since in some case real-numbers are secretly held or test data is not made public.
NSSLab is a go to for most "real numbers"
2nd would be "word of mouth from real end users "
Trust nothing, until you can validate
That's my final answer !
With any product data-sheet, I like to reduce the list number by 10/20% as a margin. So if you have a requirement of XYZ and the model of the unit is near the 10/20% value, jump to the next larger device.
