PIX ASDM connections per second problem.

I see my connections per second usage drop every 5 minutes. For example, usage stays steady at 200 then spikes to 400 and drops to 0 and back to 200. This occurs every 5 minutes. I think I have checked everything on router and switch and see not errors on the port connections. Has anyone seen this before that could offer some other places I should look?

i am looking at my 10 gig ASA right now and see similar results.  At times, i have 700 meg of throughput on each interface and connections per second at 358.  At times this will drop down to 45 c/s and 66 megs of throughput.

I can understand a drop sometimes but I can time it for exactly every five minutes. So, every five minutes I go from 200 t0 400 to zero and back to 200 c/s would be considered normal behavior?

now that you bring my attention to it, this graph does not look too accurate.  I attached the picture of from my server firewall.

but, if i go to the command prompt you can see the active number of connections by typing, 'show conn'

on my firewall, this number just keeps going up.

how are you checking this statistic.

I have been watching the same graphic display- conn per sec usage. Then issue sh conn when it spikes but see no change in the CLI. I also, started monitoring the interfaces through the ASDM using the monitor tab for each interface. I see some correlaltion between one of my interfaces but not everytime I see the spike on the c/s graph. I would think when the spike came I would see the connection limits change with a sh conn.

I think I have found the culprit on one of my interfaces. I need to do more research to pinpoint. Thanks for your help.
