Upload through inline IPS increases inspection load

The   IPS-4240-K9  [IPS Version 7.0(4) E4] is deployed in inline mode before the ASA and perimeter router .The design is  LAN->IPS->ASA->Internet Router.The problem is that when i am uploading on the internet the IPS inspection load increased to 100% and the devices beyond the IPS become non-responsive(ping drops from ASA and router).Surprisingly the ping response on IPS does not break,when I put the IPS in never inspect mode (by pass on) the problem does not happen.Hence its confirm that the issue is with the IPS and its inspection load due to upload.

Please guide on how to resolve it . thanks

Upload through inline IPS increases inspection load

Is there a particular signature that is firing a lot ?

How much is the traffic lod that is being pumped into IPS ?

Any specific reason for not upgrading to 7.0.8 release ?

Upload through inline IPS increases inspection load

Hi Sawan,

No there is no particular signature firing a lot..normal signatures which do fire in normal operation..

By traffic load u mean the size of file being uploaded ,even if we upload a file between 20-40 MB the ping drops on the devices beyond IPS starts and continues until the file is uploaded..once the file is uploaded completely which in the case of 20-40 MB is in within seconds the situation returns to normal...

We will upgrade soon ...but is there any bug in this release related to this problem ??

Thanks for the reply ..
