What is process name "68 Dispacth Unit" on 515e 7.22?

One of my firewalls 515e on 7.22 has a very busy process named "68 Dispacth Unit"

Does anyone recognize this process name? I can't tell what it is and why it has so much more CPU time than other legitimate processes.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Ernie,

I am not sure what "Dispatch Unit" but when I see a bunch of Bug IDs in the release notes for a various versions of the ASA.

Below is the URL for release notes, just look for "Dispatch Unit" and you should see some bugs listed there. Take a look at it and see if you are running into any of the bugs listed in the release notes.

I can't tell for sure. The Pix is not encountering any traceback because of this. It seems to be a utilization issue right now. Does this entry reveal anything more?

The actual process entry is:

Mrd 00218f77 01ac46c4 013a9470 824168456 01abc740 26904/32768 Dispatch Unit

Ernie,

Unfortunately, I do not know what those values mean.

I tried looking up the command reference for 7.2 and do not see anything that explains the process "dispatch unit".
