I have an issue with my Pix, during an FTP transfer the CPU goes upto 100% and stays there during the period of the transfer. When the transfer ends it goes back to 0%.
The Pix is a 535 with 512MB, the two interfaces transfering the data are both gigabit and are running at gigabit.
The only connection in the 'sh conn' is the one in progress the FTP so its not being hammered from all over yet the CPU spikes upto 100% and stays there then drops back to 0%.
This started because the server guys were complaining about slow transfers and were pointing at the FW, i didnt think for a second that one transfer would cause a Pix 535 with gigabit interfaces to flatline like it does.
Is there something obvious wrong ? or something i could do to identify the problem or a workaround ?
Any input would be great, much head scratching going on here.
