Hello everyone !


I have 2 Pix 515 here in production, each one for an internet line.


For six month , i have serious trouble with the one connected to the bussyiest one : every 1-2 weeks it reloads itself most often at the worst moment, where hundreds of client are connected ;(

Sure it reloads fast but every connection is lost and clients are to reconect...

I have an Backup unit with the same caracteristics so i put it online ...

3 weeks after ... reload in the middle of the morning ,(

Failover is not really a solution as i don't have an free ethernet for state failover (using all 4 zones).

Tried to implement syslog but it seems to be verrrryyyy slow as my syslog server where receiving msg from the pix that were 2-3 hours late ???

Couls that be an firware issue ? I use 7.0(1) and idon't have anymore CCO access so i can upgrade to 7.22 ;(

Any idea ?

Here's the spec of one :
