Cisco Bug: CSCsy93579 - SensorApp becomes memory critical over time.
Feb 22, 2014
- Cisco IPS 4200 Series Sensors
Known Affected Releases
6.0(5)P1 6.1(2) 6.1(2)M12 6.2(1) 7.0(0)B117
Symptom: IPS sensors using promiscuous or inline mode, possibly with multiple virtual sensors have logged DBMemoryCritical warnings despite moderate traffic levels. Conditions: This has been observed in particular on 4260, 4270, and IDSM-2 running 6.0(5), 6.1(2), 7.0(1), 6.2(1) in inline or promiscuous mode. The issue is usually accompanied by 'DBMemoryResourcesCritical' messages in the sensor's main.log during periods of moderate or light load. These messages are visible via the <cmdBold> show tech-support<noCmdBold> command. Note: The 'DBMemoryResourcesCritical' message can appear during normal operation of the sensor, based on actual traffic content, and precise diagnosis of this condition requires additional technical analysis or instrumentation.
