We have a new Nexus 7k, in the data centers we are noticing the switch ports for firewalls being flooded with ICMP requests at a very high rate..Is this normal, is there something we are missing ?? Thanks In Advance..

I have this problem too.

In this case teh L3 interface of the Nexus, (example) 10.112.0.1 is sending ICMP to the firewall interface , 10.112.0.30 at a very high rate. The firewalls are HA. Someone mentioned using spanning tree port type network ?
