System Connection Limit Reached

I just noticed the following message on my dashboard' s Alert Message Console: " Fortigate has reached system connection limit for 31 seconds" . It occurred four times, each time with different numbers of seconds, the most was 66 seconds. What does this mean, and is there a way to increase the limit? Thanks very much.

Memory usage at this moment is about 26%. I checked the memory graph under system resources for the past 24 hours and although the graph shows no numbers (!) it shows almost a straight line. That means the memory usage could not have been much higher than 30%, including the time that I got the alert.

Not trying to resurrect the dead or anything here, but does anyone know what article this was pointing to? The link is no longer valid. Thanks

If I check Log allowed traffic on each firewall policy, is of any help if I m not using a FA or a Syslog server? Is there a CLI command to clear the FG' s memory?

if you don' t use memory or webtrends logging either, no.

I was going to write the same thing, but declined. Too funny!

:), 10x for the answers. Still where can I see the Log allowed traffic result ? Log Access --> Memory and from here ... ?

When going from the old Knowledgebase " kc.forticare.com" to the new " kb.forticare.com" add 10.000 to the old article number. Like here 1.076 + 10.000 = 11.076. You' ll find the article about memory conservation here: http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/documentLink.do?externalID=11076
