I get this message in SYSLOG:

%ASA-7-710005: UDP request discarded from to inside:


Re: ASA In Transparent LAN Active/Standby Failover Not Passing D

This message appears when the Cisco ASA does not have a UDP server that services the UDP request. The message can also indicate a TCP packet that does not belong to any session on the Cisco ASA . In addition, this message appears (with the service snmp) when the Cisco ASA receives an SNMP request with an empty payload, even if it is from an authorized host. When the service is snmp, this message occurs a maximum of 1 time every 10 seconds so that the log receiver is not overwhelmed.

The issue can besolved by networks that heavily utilize broadcasting services such as DHCP, RIP or NetBios, the frequency of this message can be high. If this message appears in excessive number, it may indicate an attack.
