Hi all

I have a problem with my PIX 515 firewall.

Sometimes the traffic just stop passing for a period of time.
It can bee for 20-40 minutes.

If I log on to the PIX via serial interface, I can see it's running,
but I can't ping clients on the inside or the outside.

If I don't touch anything, the traffic will start passing agin after
sometime.

How do I trace down this problem?

Try turning on the logging function and see if there are any entries when
the problem occurs. There were some PIX 515s that totally locked up due to
componant problems, but yours is outside the serial number range
(44405200000 - 44405399999 and 44481200000 - 44481399999), so I think this
is another problem, and the logging may give more of a clue.

I have logging on, but the only thing I see just before traffic
stop passing is a lot of timeout sync.

sho memory
sho cpu usage
sho conn proto tcp
sho conn proto udp
sho xlate detail--->clear xlate (helps in case NAT table gets too big)

Could be some of these resources are exhausted.
What version of image?
