Hi all,

I'm running a set of webservers that are getting about 3 - 4 million page views per month.
The servers are behind a Watchguard Firebox X1000 and I've been having a lot of trouble with that device.
It crashes and hangs the whole time leaving sites inaccessible and customers irate.
I'm at the point now where I'm planning to replace it altogether.
My questions are:
1. Does anyone else here have that firewall (or any Firebox) ?
2. If so, how much traffic is it processing and how do you find its performance ?
3. What alternative firewalls do people recommend for that kind of traffic level ?

I had a Watchguard Firebox (don't remember which model) - I made mine into an MP3 player. Doesn't route much traffic, but playing tunes in the living room is sure nice...
