ASA - Scanning Burst Rate

I have configured the burst rate and average rate to 20 and the average drops/sec and current drops/sec is very well below 20. But I still see the trigger count going up with the syslog


ASA-4-%733100: [Scanning] drop rate-1 exceeded. Current burst rate is 10 per second, max configured rate is 20; Current average rate is 7 per second, max configured rate is 20;

Cumulative total count is 4667

Why is the syslog message still getting generated. Do I need to restart the ASA for the change in configuration to take effect.

What does "sh run all threat" show? Does it show you the changed value that you configured?
