ASA 5555-X high CPU usage

Hi! 

We have an ASA 5555-X as firewall and our uplink channel is ~350-400 Mbps. And there is very strange thing happen: as more traffic pass through uplink interface as datapath proccesses get big values.

For example right now we have ~200 MBps on uplink and:

asa5555# show processes cpu-usage non
Hardware: ASA5555
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 9.6(3)8
ASLR enabled, text region 
PC Thread 5Sec 1Min 5Min Process

- - 26.6% 25.0% 23.9% DATAPATH-0-2314
- - 26.5% 24.7% 23.6% DATAPATH-1-2315

We don't have any specific routes here:

route outside 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 <OUR_ISP_IP> 1

I think that it is not normal state for ASA. Or probably i'm wrong?

Hi @emichrist 

 

I think the first recommendation would be to update your version of IOS.

This is to rule out problems of your current version.
