    Yeah, I clicked the wrong thing.

    Here's my original response:

    How can we make Arista ETM products better?

      Wouldn't it make sense update them more often? I don't know how often Sandvine updates thing but I would guess it is more often than Untangle does.

        We upgrade the signatures on every release. These are not simple regex matches but compiled conditional matches which is not as simple as dropping in config files.

          Nope, it wouldn't. Sandvine probably does update signatures more frequently than we release updates, but we don't receive individual updates from them every time some individual thing changes; we just get a package every so often. That package needs to be tested before it's deployed to live NGFWs, which creates a drain on QA resources.

          Additionally, we'd end up pushing a lot of small updates in a way that ended up pretty far outside our normal versioning scheme and there'd be difficulties in ensuring that every NGFW had the newest version of the package. Ergo, we do it once per release, all at one time.
