Title: OnDemand Switch 1 & OnDemand Switch 2 AppDirector Version 1.06 Competitive Performance Evaluation versus F5 Networks BIG-IP 6800, BIG-IP 6400 and BIG-IP 1500

Publication date:   01 April 2008
Document number:    208285

Abstract:

Radware commissioned The Tolly Group to evaluate the performance of its OnDemand Switches, the vendor’s next-generation platforms that reportedly delivers over 3.7 Gbps. Engineers valuated the performance of the OnDemand switches against F5 Network’s BIG-IP 6800, BIG-IP 6400 and BIG-IP 1500 platforms. The goal was to measure performance while also handling hallenging tasks, Layer 7 operations and transaction processing under DDoS attacks, and validate the readiness of the products for next-generation applications.

Engineers measured the transaction-persecond (tps) rate, throughput and response time for 10 object sizes at Layer 7 in multiple scenarios of a single HTTP request per connection and 10 HTTP requests per connection, while also testing the ability of the platforms to maintain performance while dealing with DDoS attack packets. Tests were conducted in February 2008.
