Description (partial)

Elevated CPU may be observed on 2 or more units of an ASA cluster. Packet captures on the cluster control link will show ICMP error packets looping continuously between the units displaying high CPU conditions.

1. ASA in Layer-2 cluster mode.
2. PAT configured.
3. ICMP error packet is received on a unit where that unit is the directory for embedded payload flow.
4. Embedded payload of the ICMP error packet matches an existing xlate entry but doesn't match any connections. The owner of the PAT address of the xlate is a different unit than the one where the packet is received.
