Memory Leak


I have 80E FGT (6.4.1) and the memory on it was high last week which caused the firewall to stop functioning and forced to reboot. Can you please tell me what the reason could be and how can I resolve this for it not happen again?


Thank you,

I don't think this can be said in the aftermath. It has to be checked on while it is happening.

If it does happen to that FGT next time you might execute diags sys top on cli


Then you might see which task uses the most memory atm.

Is there a reason why it would happen and any commands that I can issue on FGT to prevent this?
