AOS8.2 7210 standalone with high memory usage all times.

my controller is 7210 AOS8.2  AP305 : 25 APs  and 80 clients

 

total memory 5.3G

availiable 102MB

 

Is it normally with high memory usage or how can I reduce it?

Re: AOS8.2 7210 standalone with high memory usage all times.

What is the exact version/build of AOS 8.2 that you are running?

There were multiple patches release since the initial 8.2.0.0 release back in 2017.

 

I would recommend opening a TAC case to analyze this. Make sure to follow the guidelines listed in this doc and send in the tech-support logs right away: https://support.arubanetworks.com/Portals/0/uploads/614/Aruba_Networks_TAC_Case_Guideline.pdf

 

That being said there is a commands on the CLI that displays detailed memory utilization:

 

show memory debug verbose

controller version 8.2.0.2 Build 62929

and attached file from "show memory debug verbose".

Among other processes, your fw_visibility process is consuming some amount of memory:

 

=======================================================================
Memory Usage (USS, PSS, RSS in  Kbytes) of All processes on the system
=======================================================================
  PID User     Command                         Swap      USS      PSS      RSS
 3953 root     /mswitch/bin/lagm               2624   955008   955623   962688
 3960 root     /mswitch/bin/licensemgr          576   277184   277508   283456
 4228 root     /mswitch/bin/fw_visibility         0   266752   267838   303552
 3889 root     /mswitch/bin/gsmmgr                0   241024   262135   308608
 3942 root     /mswitch/bin/fpapps               64   144448   146414   156736
 3864 root     /mswitch/bin/arci-cli-helpe      128   113856   115201   123904

Are you doing any excessive DPI with your controller?

 

As mentioned TAC should be your No. 1 go-to resource to identify the root cause of this. Otherwise, you would be only guessing why this happens.

 

Independently from that, 8.2.2.1 has recently earned the Conservative Release (CR) tag and therefore I recommend looking at upgrading your controller to this release: https://www.arubanetworks.com/support-services/end-of-life/arubaos-software-release/

Re: AOS8.2 7210 standalone with high memory usage all times.

8.2.2.1 is the safest upgrade path to fix your issue.

 

8.3.0.4 will be out soon and that would probably be more recommended than 8.3.0.3.
