I can see in my logs many of the following enties:

%ASA-6-201010: Embryonic connection limit exceeded -2/1024 (for various sources and destinations)

I can't find out any information on the minus value (-2) can someone tell me how I can have a negative number of connections, and whether this is a problem?

Many thanks,

if you are not actually reaching the limit but showing up the log its purely a cosmetic bug
