We have a local syslog server which listens on UDP 514 port. As many UDP frames has been cut I've done some investigation and found dropped packets (action requested by IPS). This was 1206.0 signature which is "IP Fragmant Too Small". I have created a new entry in IPS Policies to filter this out, but it didn't help. As a test I have disabled the signature completly and all frames have been delivered fine. Another thing I've tried was bringing the new action filter to the top and enabled "Stop on Match" option. Still the same. The only one solution is to disable the signature, but we can't do it.
This is ASA-SSM-20 installed on ASA 5520 version 7.1(6)E4, mode: inline
Bug search tool didn't show any related bugs.
I have checked Database integrity and get "No errors found while performing database integrity checks.
My questions are:
1. What can cause an action to be ignored on IPS?
2. Is it worth to use "Repair Database" tool? If yes what is the impact.
3. Is it possible to check hit counts on each action filter?
By default, the Summarizer is enabled. If you disable it, all signatures are set to Fire All with no summarization. If you configure individual signatures to summarize, this configuration will be ignored if the Summarizer is not enabled.
