What does that mean !?
it means that there' re login attempts with admin account i cannot see the relationship with an electrical problem
What is that problem ?
there' s no problem on the FTG' s size; restrict your administrative access to your box using for example ' trusted hosts' feature.

Hi, Not a best practice using admin for this purpose, but do you have a monitoring station, or something similar, using this account from an invalid station i.e. none trusted host?
