i have PA-220 with running 10.0.x, version I am observing the management CPU is constantly reach up to high 100%. when I check the system resources the PAN_TASK process is always taking high CPU utilization up to 100%.
I downgrade the firewall is 9.1.4 and 9.1.9 but the same issue is happening,
As well as I checked while committing the PA is taking around 5 minutes to complete the process.
As for the troubleshooting part, I checked. only 50 sessions count in a firewall and no decryption. no security profile. no PBF. no user ID. configured.
Can anyone tell me how to reduce the management plane?
Hi @Jafar_Hussain ,
You don't need to worry about pan_task. It's expected behaviour that this process runs at 100%.
Check out the recent blog on this exact topic:
You will also find several links there on how to reduce high MP CPU.
