2621 Router Memory Creeping

2621 router's memory is creeping about 1% daily. Over time I have to reboot the router because it runs out of memory.

With the following command

show memory allocating-process totals

I see the following item keeps increasing daily:

0x80684018 3384880 37851 IP SNMP

So it looks like the router keeps storing SNMP messages. Any way to reduce the number of messages it keeps in the memory?

When I reboot the router goes to like 22% memory utilization. And since I see this process is increasing daily, I don't think its a memory going bad issue.

Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

Hello Frank,

this is probably a software bug with a memory leakage happening for SNMP process.

I would suggest you to consider an IOS upgrade.

Hope to help
