Re: could not issue wr mem command

When the memory utilization goes high then you can't issue write mem?

We need to figure out what is eating all that memory.  Tracking memory usage is a mundane process. I'd suggest opening a TAC case and letting them collect what they need and let you know if this is a known issue and may be upgrade the code accordingly.

I have seen this before.

try to copy the running config to a new *.cfg file on the disk:0 and then change the config-url location.

Use running-config startup-config to to save configuration to startup (NVRAM)

You can also try to disable threat-detection and that will free coniguous blocks of memory and you will be able to save it with "wr mem"

I hope it helps.
