    Hi Heath


    I have seen this before and don't believe this to be a hardware issue. You
    are possibly running out of memory. Check the memory in the show diag. Watch
    to see if memory is getting relinquished or does the value just keep on

    Hi Folks

    We have 2 Cisco Secure Content Accelerators in a load-balanced transparent
    reverse proxy config.
    Approximately every 10 days or so one of the SCA boxes will hang. There is
    nothing to suggest any issues in the logs, and the network link remains
    active but the box is unreachable. It just becomes lifeless so to speak
    similair to the "admin shutdown". A hard reboot brings everything back to
    life again.

    Has anyone experienced this, or have any suggestions on how to diagnose and
    resolve this problem. I am reluctant to use TAC as I would rather understand
    the problem rather than just having a replacement box shipped out.

    Thanks in advance
