Issue/Introduction

Trap Storm of 30,000 traps per minute caused the spectroserver.exe to crash.




Cause

Spectrum Server is overloaded by excessive incoming traps.

Environment

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

  • Trap Storm of 30,000 traps per minute caused the spectroserver.exe to crash.
  • There are many factors involved but typically a SS can handle 300-500 traps per second sustained for 1-2 hours until the process get overloaded and cannot keep up.
  • Sustained traps of 30,000 per minute would indicate a second landscape is required to distribute the load more evenly.
