1. If you have a baseline, check "show xlate", "show conn count" to see if they are big diff from your baseline.

2. You can check the traffic load to see if a interface / host has a alot traffic.

"show traffic", "show local-host"

3. There might be a memory leaking in certain process. In this case, you might reload the box and then monitor memory usage to see if there is a process keep using more and more memory. "show memory detail".
