8.0.2 Management SLOW, SLOW, SLOW on PA500

Has anyone else noticed that the management functions through the web interface are incredibly slow with 8.0.2?  Committing even a simple change brought these timings:

- 1:10 just to get the progress bar beyond zero

- 3:42 to complete the commit.

 

Seems awfully slow....

When was this actually updated, within the first 24 hours the system is known to run much slower. I haven't used the PA500 series but I don't recall it being a particularly fast device to being with  right?

8.0.x is not yet suggested on PA200 and PA500.

Probably it needs some more resource tuning and code cleanup.

Still, it takes quite too long to commit l think, even for PA500 series. Do you know what is "eating" your MP CPU, which process?

Did you try to restart a mgmt process?

@Raido
What do you mean with "not yet suggested"? Is this an official statement of PAN? Do you know about more problems than a slow mgmt?
I noticed that it is slower than before on a PA200, but everything else runs perfectly till now...

No it is not official statement but came up in chat with TAC person.

 

Check if it is newer 500 with more ram.

@vsys_remo,

Slow management and you're more likely to have a process hang. It isn't that it isn't usable but the earlier versions of the 500 and the 200 simply don't have the resources to keep up with everything. I was actually suprised to see the earlier version of the 500 remain supported.

The poor performance was more than 24 hours after the upgrade.  It's pretty consistently slow on the management side.  The device seems to be keeping up with moving traffic.

Interesting that it's not suggested.  The device certainly offered the upgrade to me.  Odd that the device offered an upgrade that's not fully "cooked" for this platform.

I looked at system resources (show system resources follow).  I'm not seeing huge CPU utilization (load average often less than 2).

 

I restarted the mgmt process last week.  I don't think this made any noticable difference.

 

BTW, I have the 2 GB RAM model of the PA-500.
