High Memory Utilization Pix 515e

Unanswered Question
Mar 19th, 2010

Hi to all,

I have a Pix 515E with 128MB in RAM and i've been having an utilization of 98%, at the beggining we had the 7.2 version and doing some researches we found that maybe that high usage could be a bug in that version and we upgrade to 8.0.4.28 but the problem remains.

Here is the sh processes memory output:

Are you running threat-detection?

If so, that could be a cause...
