You need a network analyzing tool on your local switches since the ASA on that version does not have that many tools to help decipher what is the source cause.

The only other option would be show local-host and look at top talkers or check logs.

Hi,

please help....

In addition to suggestions from Jumora-

1. What servers/serivices you are running in DMZ? Make sure all the servers OS patched up to date.

2. 7.0(7) itself is very old IOS. Consider upgrade IOS to 8.0.x and still the memory utilization on ASA is low, go for 8.2.x.

3. Also, refer to below doc with some information on how to mitigate network attacks on ASAs, this may help you as well..
