Cisco ASA xlate limit resource

Hi!

I have the problem with resource limitation on Cisco ASA.

I want to set the limit for xlates as a percentage, not as an absolute value. But I can't do it.

As I can see the output of command syntax, then this feature should be maintained:

ASA(config-class)# limit-resource xlates ?

class mode commands/options:

  WORD  Value of resource limit (in <value> or <value>%)

But I'm getting error when try to set value in %:

ASA(config-class)# limit-resource xlates 50%

ERROR: Capacity unknown for this resource type

ASA(config-class)# limit-resource xlates 50.00%

ERROR: Capacity unknown for this resource type

Is it possible to limit xlates as a percentage?

What should I do to set this value as limit of default xlate?

Thanks in advance

Cisco ASA xlate limit resource

Hi Igor,

The percentage can only be used for resources which have a hardcoded system limit. For resources that do not have a system limit, you cannot set the percentage (%); you can only set an absolute value.

The xlates can be created upon how much memory you have, you might be able to see the option for it, but it is only for resources, which have a definite number.

Thanks,

Hi, Varun!

Thank you for reply

How can I calculate maximum number of xlates knowing amount of memory in appliance?

Cisco ASA xlate limit resource

Hi Igor,

I am not really sure about it but it should be around 260 bytes per xlate, so you can do your calculations based on that.

Thanks,
