Agents heartbeating to EFM

Learn about the estimated latencies, CPU usage, memory usage, and network usage when agents heartbeat to Edge Flow Manager (EFM) which is configured to process compressed traffic.


The latencies are slightly lower, but with higher peaks.

CPU usage

CPU usage is in the same range, but with higher peaks.

Memory usage

Memory usage is slightly higher compared to the baseline test, the Garbage Collection (GC) latency is also higher with higher peaks.

Network usage

Network usage is slightly lower; between 18-20 MB/s compared to the baseline 20-25 MB/s, that is a 10-20 percent decrease in the traffic.
