Ramifications of a Port Scan on a Cisco ASA?

This maybe a stupid question, however I want to make sure.

If I run a port scan utility, say from SolarWinds for example against a Cisco ASA, will this trigger any kind of threat response from the ASA?  IE will it black list the IP for a short time that is running the port scan?  Are there other ramifications for doing this?

I am thinking it will just drop the traffic or perhaps do nothing, but I am not well versed on what it will do.

Thanks for the feedback.

Unless you have auto-shun enabled or an IDS/IPS the ASA wont do anything to stop you scanning it.

Thanks Pete Long, I know this is Cisco, but is there a quick way to see if this is active?  VIA ASDM etc?
