Memory usage issue at no traffic case

I have a PA-2050 running PAN 3.1.4,  There is no traffic on the device.  Only the management IP was assinged to the device.

But only 44MB free memory is available. Is this expected behaviour?

% CPU 18  %
Free Memory 44.0 MB
Total Memory 984.2 MB
% Disk Usage 1  %

Re: Memory usage issue at no traffic case

Our PA-2050 has always sucked up memory since 3.0.3. Never really bothered me. It still performs like a champ.

I also never understood if this was the management plane, or the data plane to which is was referring.

Re: Memory usage issue at no traffic case

Your looking at the dashboard when you get that information, the memory usage you are looking at is specific to the management plane and not the dataplane. This amount will be impacted by things such as your web interface and dynamic updates. Not Dataplane activity.
