FWSM url filtering & high cpu

Unanswered Question
Aug 4th, 2008


I'm having a few issues with my FWSM. I am running version 3.2(5). I have implemented url-filtering to a Websense server on a directly connected vlan, and since then the CPU on the FWSM is running at near 100%.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

The CPU before implementing url-filtering was always around 20%, even with barely any traffic going through it (Is this normal?). The number of Websense requests per second is roughly 50. (We have about 3500 users accessing the internet through that gateway). I was under the impression that the FWSM would be able to handle this easily...

Any help is appreciated!


I have this problem too.

Thanks for the reply.

I had seen this bug but thought since it was only documented in version 3.1(x)...it would have been ok in version 3.2(x), but that's not the case!

Thanks for the help.
