L7-filter Performance

There have not been any rigorous performance tests of l7-filter (that we know about). However, anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that it is fairly efficient. Here are some configurations that have been reported.

Note that different protocols take different amounts of processing power to match. For heavily loaded networks, you might not have enough processing power use the more processor intensive ones. The protocols page gives information about the speeds of all the patterns so that you can choose which to use.
