This changes from organization to organization, some organization do not like to overload the device, some want to best utilize the hardware.

Hey Olivier,

The Memory Page Swapping:
Threshold: 10 pages configuration may falsely fire being so low - when the Cisco ESA devices go through it's update, there are times memory paging can spike for a short moment - especially if your devices are under some load.

However for the most part, they seem okay.
Balaji has shared a helpful article as well to assist on that.

Regards,
Mathew
