Recently I've started getting the an alert re: the number of connections to the Pix.
The OID is: cfwConnectionsStatVal .22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.2.1.5
I know the threshold set is not that high but the interesting thing is that, if anything, this PIX should be less used than it was 3mnths ago. The alerts started about 3 weeks ago and I get one every 3 or 4 days. One problem with troubleshooting this is that by the time I get the alert, login, and check conns, cpu, mem, etc everything is as it should be.
Anyone know what could cause an unprecedented increase and should not be considered a part of normal network behavior? Should I be looking at mis-firing apps inside the network or at stuff originating from the outside?
Any advice much appeciated.
Thanks in advance,
