Flow mode inspection use case
It is recommended that flow inspection is applied to policies that prioritize traffic throughput, such as allowing connections to be made towards a streaming or file server.
You have an application server which accepts connections from users for the daily quiz show app, HQ. Each HQ session sees 500,000+ participants, and speed is very important because participants have less than 10 seconds to answer the quiz show questions.
In this scenario, a flow inspection policy is recommended to prioritize throughput. The success of the application depends on providing reliable service for large numbers of concurrent users. We will apply an IPS sensor to this policy to protect the server from external DOS attacks.
