Hello all,

I don't know if this is the good place for this question. If not, please
tell where to post.

I actually own a Pix 506E. I want to buy another one in case of crash of the
first one. The idea is to save the config of the fisrt one and if there is a
crash, I replace it with de second one where I restore config.

I saw on an online store a Pix 506 (not E). In the product description,
there is copy/past of the 'show ver' command. I used it to compare to mine.

On my Pix, I can read Throughput: unlimited but on the store's one, I can
read Throughput: Limited.

I can't understand what is limited and if this limitation will make not
possible what I project to do (replace one by the second with config
restore)

Hre is the complete show ver on my actual Pix:
