High CPU usage of Panorama

L0 Member


Our Panorama is running on a dual quad-core 2.66GHz + 4GB RAM + VMServer 2.0.  We have a PA4020 appliance which has a persistent session count of roughly 250000 sessions.  When we direct the logs of this PA4020 to Panorama, the CPU usage of Panorama jumps to 100% and becomes very slow (sometimes no responses at all).

So anyone knows if Panorama can sustain such high number of concurrent sessions?

Thanks a lot.

Hi KH,

can you call into support. This is something we will need to take a look at.

We will need the techsupport from Panorama.

If Panorama is at 100%  CPU, we need to check to see if it is due to some process.

At the very least, a  'show system resource' output will also help.
