  • Cisco Employee,

Hello,


Did the memory utilization increase off-late or has it been constantly

staying at 91%? Also, do you have any WebVPN settings configured on the

firewall? Please post the output of "show memory detail" in here so we could

try to see any process that is hogging memory.


Regards,


NT

Hello,


If it is constantly staying at 91%, then I think the features you have

enabled are consuming most of your memory. WebVPN does require more memory

to hold user profile information. I would suggest you to upgrade the memory

on the firewall (you can consider upgrading to 1 GB).


Hope this helps.
