PIX 525 Firewall - Performance problem
Posted on 2004-08-02
We have a performance issue with our Pix 525. CPU utilization has suddenly shot up to 80-90%, and during peak traffic loads, the pix even crashes.The normal utilization is around 30-40%.
The firewall was originally running IOS version 6.2(2) and upgraded to V6.3(3) and then to 6.3(4) after being advised by Cisco TAC.
A TAC case has been running for the past one week, and a resolution is still not available. Could someone give out a few pointers as to where I should start looking?
