Have you gone through this link

I would not worry much about the memory usage as that value is normal, but definately high cpu is a concern, try the link above.

This time the CPU is on 20 to 25 % but RAM still using 185 to 200 MB. Please respond.

The general deployment release 8.0.3 does have higher memory usage on average than 7.2 specially is you have threat detection and shun enabled.

8.0.3 interim release 19 seems to address these concerns by reducing utilisation quite significantly.

Are you having any performance issues with traffic passing through the appliance?
