Agents registering to EFM

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


The latencies are slightly higher, but are in the same range.

CPU usage

There is a slight increase in the CPU usage compared to the baseline test case. CPU usage is 5-15% more, with higher peaks.

Memory usage

The heap consumption fluctuates between 2.3 GB and 7.5 GB with maximum Garbage Collection (GC) pauses of 200 ms sometimes peaking up to 1 second.

Network usage

Accumulated in-bound network traffic is between 20 and 30 MB/s. Compared to the baseline test case, there is 60-75% less pressure on the network I/O.
