Might be defect CSCtb58989 (fixed in 8.2(2.3))

Symptom:

ASDM fails to load on ASA 8.2, due to no available DMA memory.

This issue occurs if logging is enabled along with crypto tunnels.

Conditions:

Logging is enabled.

Crypto (IPSec, SSL) is also enabled.

Workaround:

Downgrade ASA to 8.0.x or configure the logging queue to a value of 512. After

restoring the logging queue to default, need to reload the box to reclaim DMA

memory.
