Top Usage Status

Unanswered Question

I have a PIX Firewall 515E with version 8.0.2 and ASDM 6.0.2 and I have a problem.

I enabled the Top Usage Status (Top 10 Services / Top 10 Sources / Top 10 Destinations) in the 'Firewall Dashboard' menu and now the Memory Utilization is very high.

I do not know how to stop these features.

Could you help me?

you need to disable in the pix command line:

no threat-detection statistics protocol

that should reduce the RAM usage..

if that doesn't reduce it enough for you, then type:

sho run | inc threat

the output will show you all of the "threat-detection" commands.. disable one at a time..

but think that the "threat-detection statistics protocol" is the memory hog

Also, there are a few memory leak bugs filed for 8.0(2) and 8.0(3). If you want to re-enable threat-detection in the future, I would recommend an upgrade first so you can get the fixes for the memory leaks.
