Unanswered Question
Aug 20th, 2007

Hi all,

I am running PIX 515e in a failover environment. The PIX has 128MB memory and currently it is using 113MB of the momory. Is that normal? How can I check where it is using this much memory? What is the maximum it can go without crashing?

Hi Shoaib,

Please check the following :

Which code r u running?

Your syslogging is it turned on level debugging?

sh logg ( turn off bufrred looging if that is on )

sh xl count

sh conn (if there an attack ?)

sh conn count

Sh performance

sh mem detail

sh mem blocks

sh cpu usage

sh proc (to see if any particular process is consuming the memory )

These statistics should give u some idea if there is a problem

Hi Raj,

Thanks for your help.

I am running version 7.22.

I don't see anything wrong with the output of the commands you sent. Most of the setting are set to default e.g log buffer etc.
