High CPU on PIX 515 (7.0.5)

Unanswered Question
Aug 24th, 2008


I have a FW solution with 2 PIX (Active/stanby), when I force the secondary unit to be active all is OK, but when the primari unit is active, I see 80% cpu (12% in secondary), so, in orther to find the reason, the "sho perfom" command show me the "TCP fixup" process, 9000 packets per sec. in primary, and 600 in secondary....

Can some one help me?

Thanks in advance,


I have this problem too.

'show process' consecutive outputs would indicate the processes with higher runtime.

Make sure all debugs/level 7 logging is turned off.

'show traffic and show blocks all' would prove helpful too

TAC should be able to better assist you with this

Could be more likely due to a bug!
