A few weeks ago I swapped a FortiGate 100D firewall to a 90D firewall. The 100D was defective and needed to be replaced. Since the customer only has a 20 Mbps ISP connection, I thought that a FortiGate 90D would fit for the moment, since it has a firewall throughput of 3,5 Gbps, compared to the lower value of 2,5 Gbps from the 100D.
Indeed, it worked. However, the CPU usage increase was huge, almost related to the NGFW throughput. Here are some graphs:

I am running two old notebooks in my laboratory for several server purposes. Last year, I started to support the World Community Grid project with the idle times on these laptops. Nothing interesting so far. However, it is interesting to track the load of the CPUs since they vary on both laptops due to the projects that require different CPU types.
