Hi Team,


We have noticed that our PA 220 device data plane has been restarted automatically.


Pan OS: 10.0.6


Please find the logs below,

2021-09-24 10:36:33.499 +0530 CRITICAL: data_plane: restarts exhausted, rebooting system


We are not sure this is related to any os bug because 10.0.6 known issues we checked. Not seen anything related to this issue.


Kindly help us to get a RCA for this issue.

Same exact issue on PA-220s run ver 9.1.3 not 10.0.6. It was found to be memory leak issue by TAC and suggestions to upgrade to 9.1.5 or 9.1.6

Please take a look Tech Support file to determine root cause & open ticket with TAC. 

Don't forget to share the solution for this issue.

If you're looking for RCA you need to go to TAC and let them perform RCA for you with the help of your technical support file. The fact that you have a process crashing could be caused by a memory leak or a myriad of other issues.

Without a copy of the technical support file we don't have the appropriate log files to analyze the issue for you, nor would I ever recommend you share that file with strangers on the internet.
