Traffic in the PIX 525

Unanswered Question


After get following error in the BEA Welogic app server in the dmz:

"<BEA-101215> <Malformed Request "/jsp/AD_Banner/Hardocp_120x300.jsp HTTP/1.0". Request parsing failed, Code: -10>".

app server is still running fine, but traffic in the PIX (version 7.0) inside interface, two dmz interface and failover interface have big jump, PIX cpu usage is from 20% to 80%, after 8 hour, everything is back to normal. Is this bug with PIX or somethng else?

Hello Ben

The release notes of all the pix ios versions are as given below:

you can look for your specific IOS and see if there are any open caveats.. anyway, can you please eloborate a little more on your issue ? I really did not get much, apart from the fact that the CPU goes from 20 % to 80 you see anything on the local logs ? how is the interface traffic ??


Thanks Raj.Follwoing is details for traffic in the interface with MRTG (have dmz1, dmz2,dmz3, inside, outside, failover):

Outside and dmz3 interface: Normal

dmz1: incoming traffic from 0.2M up to 1.6 M(it's about 0.2 M normaly)

outgoing traffic: Normal

dmz2: Incoming traffic: Normal

outgoing traffic from 0.2 M up to 1.6 M (it's about 0.2 M normaly).

Failover: incoming traffic: Normal

outgoing traffic from 0.2 up to 2.2 M (it's about 0.2 M normaly).

Inside interface: incoming traffic: 0.5 M up to 2.8 M (it's from 0.5 to 1 M normaly).

outgoing traffic: 1.0 up to 5.5 M (it's from 0.5 to 3 M normaly).

From pix syslog, not find anything about it. Only find error message in the app server which with first email.

* Normal: just compare traffic with day or weekly traffic graphic and no more big changed.

Looks traffic is not with outside, it is with inside.
