The FWSM supports a fixed number of rules for the entire system.For 3.2 code the rule limits are as follows


In later releases you can manipulate the rules using

FWSM(config)# resource rule nat 13 acl max filter current fixup current est current aaa 442 console current

Meaning you can reduce for e.g policy nat Aces and allocate memory to ACLs.
