ASG running on SGOS 188.8.131.52 or later reports high memory utilization constantly.
ASG releases 184.108.40.206and greater include a performance optimization that allocates memory for SGOS upfront and prevents the rest of the ASG services from using that reserved memory. As a result, the host memory utilization percentage statistic in the sysinfo under PDM statistics ASG:host:memory:usage, will appear significantly higher in versions with this optimization. While this is a technically expected behavior we are planning changes in our reporting to make memory statistics clearer.
Effectively, the memory statistic as of ASG 220.127.116.11 may incorrectly appear to be abnormally high but this is simply a reporting issue. Symantec is reviewing this reporting issue to determine what corrections may be needed and released in a later revision. In the meantime, the ASG appliance should continue to operate normally despite the high value.
