Going through the datasheet documents for SSL orchestrator and Platform I see different throughput values for SSL orchestrator Throughput vs Platform L7-L7 traffic processing throughput.
What is the difference between these throughput? Using SSL Orchestrator does the Platform throughput decrease and limited to what SSL orchestrator Maximum Throughput is ?
The platform data sheet is giving you raw throughput for the device. And for SSL (TLS handshake and encryption) these numbers reflect a single decrypt operation.
SSL Orchestrator throughput differs then in the following ways:
Reading article Update or upgrade the F5 SSL Orchestrator | BIG-IP update and upgrade guide, sounds like SSL Orchestrator contains significant stability improvements in 16.1.x - 9.x. Since, we haven't provisioned SSL Orchestrator in v15.x devices, would it be wise to upgrade device to 16.1.x and provision/configure SSLO. I think this will help in us doing the workaround mentioned in the article.
