PA -220 Slow

L1 Bithead

Hi experts ,

When I press commit on the Palo alto firewall It takes a long time around 5 or 7 minutes to complete this task, 

and Management CPU reached to full as a screenshot. It’s kinda made it really difficult to work on this device now. 

devise Model: PA-220

Software Version: 9.1.8

your advice is highly appreciated

the pa-220 doesn't have a lot of resources so it could get a little slow if you're running a lot of services or tasks

you can try to see which services are taking up the most resources by running: show system resources


check if there is memory free and if swap is being used, or cpu is running  high

review your config to see if there are things you can turn off (dhcp, reports,..) or tune down (logging, dynamic update checks,...)
