Memory ram

Good Afternoon:

My ASA 5510 has consumed 189 MB of 200MB in memory RAM. This is normal or i have some problem?.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Memory ram

This is certainly very high.

If it's running 8.0 code,try disabling threat detection.See if it helps.

Issue :

sh run threat-detection

Add " no " in front of the results.

For example,

ASA-5510-8x(config)# sh run threat-detection

threat-detection basic-threat

threat-detection scanning-threat shun

threat-detection statistics host

threat-detection statistics access-list

Issue :

ASA-5510-8x(config)# no threat-detection basic-threat

ASA-5510-8x(config)# no threat-detection scanning-threat shun

ASA-5510-8x(config)# no threat-detection statistics host

ASA-5510-8x(config)# no threat-detection statistics access-list

This would reduce the memory usage.

If even after this,there is slow increase in memory usage,open up a TAC case for troubleshooting.

Please rate if helps.

Sushil

Re: Memory ram

Good day Sushil:

Thank's for your answer.

I applied the command to disable the threat-detection, and the memory cosume reduced to 140 MB.

Another cuestion. Disabling this the ASA lose the monitoring to attacks??.

Thank's in advanced.

Re: Memory ram

Not at all,

It's a new feature in 8.x code.Even without this feature,firewall is secure enough....and it's very normal to disable it under low memory conditions.
