analysis engine stops running after some time on 6500


I'v been trying several things to keep my analysis engine alive.

if it is not running I can get it back up by initiating a reboot of the module.

but thats not wanted, data gets lost and I have no history anymore.

can anybody help me to get the analysis engine to stay stable? thanks in advance.

the IDS is approached by IME on GUI for monitoring.

I know my signatures need to be updated, but I? want to get the system stable first, thanks for any help offerd.

Re: analysis engine stops running after some time on 6500

Wow, where did you get the 6 month trial license?

about your problem: Somthing is making your sensor unstable. How much bandwidth are you putting thru this IDSM? Are you missing any packets?(sh int) Are you experiencing any other problems? (sh stat anal) Are you running any custom sigs? Are you running the default sig settings?
