High Swap Memory Usage - 95%

I've noticed that a couple of our Viprion F5's are running at very high sawp file. 95%. Also, noticed that we have alot of logging running, in particular Logs - Local Traffic, we currently have over 600 pages of logs. I was wondering if this logging was causing the high memory usage?

Either way , can we reduce the amount of logging for the local traffic?

Does anyone have any useful commands I could run to help troubleshoot the problem please.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Hi

The swap memory usage does not increase unless there is a specific reason.

I think your bigip system have some bug.

Open Sr and provide more detail on your bigip.

with regards,

'Sr' ? Service ticket?

I've opened a ticket with our 3rd party and they have come back - they think its being caused by a service ( dwbld ) having an extended uptime. This then causes a memory leak. According to the documentation this should only happen if the F5 is provisioned with ASM, which it isn't.

Is there any other troubleshooting I can do to find out where the memory leak is ?

Thanks
