We use some time (more than one year) SRX240. Since last upgrade without upgrade. In the last time we get alarms "low available memory, lower than threshold" ... when I type "show system process brief" I get there 27MB RAM free only.
As i observe there is no swap configured. When will be memory exhausted, we need to reboot both boxes of cluster?
Has someone such experience? Or srx use all memory and no crash, low memory deadlock etc, is happen?
Thanks for any comments
It is generally recommanded to keep finite amount of meemory for box functioning correctly.
You can best do is remove the unnecessary log files/back software copy(if available) it will free some space from the device.
You can do via
root#run request system storage cleanup<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<To delete the unnecessary files.
If there are memory full in SRX, box might misbehave in functionality.
Hi deepakcr,thanks for your respnse.I have found souch description of FreeBSD ... (http://rerepi.wordpress.com/2008/04/19/tuning-freebsd-sysoev-rit/)mbuf clustersFreeBSD stores the network data in the mbuf clusters 2Kb each, but only 1500B are used in each cluster (the size of the Ethernet packet)mbufsFor each mbuf cluster there is “mbuf” structure needed, which have 256B in size and used to organize mbuf clusters in chains. There’s possibility to store some additional useful 100B data into the mbuf, but it is not always used.If server have the RAM of 1Gb or more 25 thousands of mbuf clusters will be created by default but it is not enough in some cases.When there’s no any free mbuf clusters available FreeBSD enters the zonelimit state and stops to answer to any network requests. You can see it as the `zoneli` state in the output of the `top` command.So I expect the behavior will be the same ... if will be all memory consumed.I am solving this with JTAC.V.
Case is closed now, box should be ok ... by JTAC. When I check memory via "show system process brief" then I see 5-45MB RAM free ...
Indeed. I have the same dillemma. Hopefully cleaning up and applying the principle shared by good guys here solves mine. Thanks men.
What version of Junos are you running and are you utilizing UTM functionality such as AV and/or IDP? If 11.4R5 introduced a new feature to help with control-plane memory usage which can be found here.
I have one issue an interesting one, please support
I have one EX 9208 switch shaving 16 GB of memory out of which only 1 GB isused and remaining 2 GB is showing n free memory and remamining memory in inactive memory around 12 GB, ideal process is memory should stayu in free memory but in my case it is showing in inact memory. can someone please help me out on it.?
