I have a theory question for you networking guru's if wouldn't mind answering :). Let's say I have a Cisco ASA 5510 who's cleartext throughput is 300Mbps and sitting behind that I have Citrix MPX 5650 who's throughput is 1Gbps - everything is connected to a 1Gbps Access swich. Will my load-balancer ever get to push 1Gbps of throughput if my FW only supports 300Mbps, but I'm on 1Gb access switches? The ASA has a 1Gb Interface, so I'm curious why have 1Gb interface if you can only process 300Mbps of throughput?
