Webblocker - Browsing performance really bad
I've been asked to restrict a single user from accessing specific sites during office hours. I couldn't see a simple way of doing this (single user) through the WebBlocker GUI so I've done the following (please let me know if this is correct or not).
I've created a WebBlocker action called UserRestricted and gone through the list and check the categories that these sites fall under. Next I've created 2 Firewall policies, one for HTTP and one for HTTPS, in the proxy actions sections I've specified the UserRestricted action as previously created. The "FROM" is the IP address of the PC that the user resides. All other settings are default. Finally I've installed the root certificate on the users PC for the HTTPS traffic.
Everything seems to work i.e. the user can't get to the sites I've blocked but the browsing performance is really bad, sites like Google etc are timing out on first load and only loading on a second try. I've tried removing all the logging from the WebBlocker action which I thought might help but it hasn't.
Just to prove it's the policies if I disable them the browsing performance returns.
The unit is T30 with version 12.5.7.B640389, the CPU looks to be OK however memory is running at about 90%.
Any help/pointers gratefully received.
