Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

Hello,

Our Cisco ASA 5520 firewall is running with 99% CPU, Processes Dispatch Unit is using over 90 % of CPU, and capture is showing below drop reason :

 

Drop-reason: (nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool) Connection to PAT address without pre-existing xlate


firewall(config)# show processes cpu-usage sorted non-zero
PC Thread 5Sec 1Min 5Min Process
0x082a430c 0x6edd4ee4 98.5% 98.5% 97.8% Dispatch Unit

Any thoughts ?
Thank you,

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

I do not think the it's the same problem.

I usually see 'PAT address without pre-existing xlate' for missconfigured nat rules.

The dispatch unit is the central packet processing process and for high dispatch cpu you usually need to have a look at traffic.

Show traffic, show perfmon and sh asp drop can give you an idea where the problem is.

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

Can you get the output of show perfmon detail?

Clear asp drop then issue the command show asp drop 5 times and post the
output.

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

Following counters seem to be incriminating pretty fast: TCP RST/FIN out of order , TCP RST/SYN in window , DNS Inspect packet too long.

You could configure a capture to see exactly who is doing the traffic and verify if it is legitimate or not and if it can be stopped.

 

cap CAP-RST-SYN type asp-drop tcp-rst-syn-in-win buffer 1000000 circular-buffer
cap CAP-RST-FIN type asp-drop tcp-rstfin-ooo buffer 1000000 circular-buffer

Thanks, i managed to resolve the DNS maximum length by increasing DNS maximum allowed packet lenght on the global policy

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

Based on the output it seems something is wrong with the proxy setup.

You could disable tcp inspection on the asa, but the problem is not on the asa.

 

TCP RST/SYN in window:
SYN flag should not be used in data transfer. Only the first packet sent from each end should have this flag set.

TCP RST/FIN out of order:
TCP RST or TCP FIN packet received after the tcp session was closed. It could be caused by a host trying to use a closed tcp session, the other host would normally respond to that with a RST.

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

I fact it's a windows server 2012, there are no proxy rules on the proxy, all it's doing is forwarding the traffic to the upstream server collector.
How can i check if something is wrong on the proxy server ?

Windows is unfortunately not my area of expertise.

You could maybe have a look at the system logs.

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

I think the problem is high tcp conn. You conn rate is 2300 per sec. Is
this normal. Is it a heavy environment.

Check show host command with sort option to see who is causing this

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

This happened a while ago and stopped when i thought i upgraded the firmware of the firewall, and then it appeared again, i can't find the command show host !
do you mean show local-host ? if yes how can i sort the output ?

Thank you,

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

I have tried system logs, but they are not showing anything unusual !

Re: Cisco ASA 5520 High CPU usage | nat-no-xlate-to-pat-pool

I have sorted out the output of show local-host using Excel :

local host: <@PROXY-HA>,
TCP flow count/limit 1412 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 69
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 0 unlimited
local host: <@PROXY3>,
TCP flow count/limit 1741 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 1
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 0 unlimited
local host: <@PROXY2>,
TCP flow count/limit 2147 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 1
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 0 unlimited
local host: <@PROXY1>,
TCP flow count/limit 3102 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 12
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 0 unlimited
local host: <@PROXY4>,
TCP flow count/limit 2350 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 2
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 1 unlimited
local host: <@PROXY-COLLECTOR-PUBLIC-IP>,
TCP flow count/limit 7935 unlimited
TCP embryonic count to host 906
TCP intercept watermark unlimited
UDP flow count/limit 0 unlimited

Wanted to mention that we are using scansafe as webfilter.
