High Memory Utilization of ASA 5510 after upgrade to OS 8.0

Hi,

I have upgraded my firewall OS from asa707-k8.bin to asa804-39-k8.bin after which the memory utilization has suddenly shoot to 90-95%.

Have tried many options available to identify the cause such as disabling threat detection,shortening the access-list however end up with with no resolution.

Current the DRAM is 256 MB

sh version and sh mem output are attch alongwith.

Kindly let me know is there any bug related to OS.

Re: High Memory Utilization of ASA 5510 after upgrade to OS 8.0

this depend on lot of factors,

firstly wht was the mem utilization in 7.0 code

any particular reason why you went to 8.0.4.39

how many xlates and conn entries do you have in fw,

if nothing has changed and ur mem was very low like 60 to 70 % free in 7.0 code, i would suggest open a tac and investigate

Re: High Memory Utilization of ASA 5510 after upgrade to OS 8.0

Answering your concern

the mem utilization with 7.0 code was 45 to 50 %


Upgraded to 8.0 for getting eth 0/0 and eth 0/1 transformed to Gig


NINMUM03-DGTL-FIREWALL-00001# sh xlate count
14 in use, 14 most used


Yeah in process of raising a TAC with Cisco.

Re: High Memory Utilization of ASA 5510 after upgrade to OS 8.0

Padmabhushan Sawant,  I I have looked into this issue because I am having some issues with my VPN and a Smart Net tech told me that the new OS has some fixes in it that may fix my problem.  However i was only running 256 on my ASA5510 and the smart Net tech said that I needed 1 gig min to run the new OS.   You may want to look into that some more...
