DMZ FTP server slow since Pix 7 upgrade (64mb only)

We have a Pix 515 and the DMZ is very slow since upgrading the firmwaire from 6.3 to 7. The Pix only has 64mb, but we are having a 128mb sick delivered this week. Will this improve the upload speed to the FTP server? It was so much faster before the upgrade.

Re: DMZ FTP server slow since Pix 7 upgrade (64mb only)

Could be du to many factors:

Check if ftp-server is able to do dns resolving:

Also check if interfaces are set correctly. Personally I do not leave interfaces to auto-negociate.

Re: DMZ FTP server slow since Pix 7 upgrade (64mb only)

Have you verified if this is not a duplex or speed issue with your DMZ interface. This is was usually slow down the interface.

Use: Duplex auto on PIX and auto on Switch

or: 100 Full on PIX and 100 Full on Switch

To verify do a < show interface > and check if you have a lot of errors as CRC, Short Frames ...

Have you try the version 7.1

Hi all, I forgot to mention it was fine before the upgrade, the average memory usage before the upgrade was 26% now it is 65%. Sorry it is 7.1 just checked.

Re: DMZ FTP server slow since Pix 7 upgrade (64mb only)

Hi

as suggested, you should cehck the port statistics like speed and duplex. are there any CRCs or input errorsand drops ?

cisco suggestes that if it is restircted model then 64 is OK for OS 7.0. but incase it is UR or FO model then it needs 128 MB.

thanks and regards

Re: DMZ FTP server slow since Pix 7 upgrade (64mb only)

Counters indicates collisions on the outside intf. This is du the half-duplex configuration. Check to configure this interface to 10Mbps full-duplex or 100Mbps full-duplex.

You can also initiate a clear interface to reset the counters.
