CPM XOS

Issue/Introduction

The CPM might slowly run out of memory during operation of the X-Series platform.
The ps or top commands reveal that most of the total memory is occupied by the snmpd or cbsstatsmond daemons. For example:

 PID  USER  PR  NI  VIRT   RES   SHR  S %CPU %MEM  TIME+     COMMAND

snmpd      
 

Cause

The snmpd and cbsstatsmond daemons can allocate significant amounts of memory when communicating with other modules (APMs, NPMs) within the chassis.

Resolution

The problem was fixed in  the following XOS versions:
9.6.9 
9.7.6 
10.0.2 

Blue Coat recommends upgrading to one of the XOS versions above (or a later version) in order to resolve the issue.
