How to check SRX-IDP for memory exhaustion or leak



Article ID: KB26205 KB Last Updated: 05 Mar 2017Version: 2.0
This article provides information on how to check SRX-IDP for memory exhaustion or leak.
Administrators may want to check f the IDP process is running out of memory due to memory leak  or exhaustion.

To check the state of IDP memory, shell into the vty prompt and run show usp idp status. In this example, shell was performed into a high-end SRX device.

Note: For branch SRX devices, the administrator will vty into fwdd; instead of pic.
root@srx3400-> start shell
root@srx3400-172% tnpdump (to get the PIC infor)
node1.fpc6.pic0 0x2100116 02:00:00:02:01:16 em0 1500 2 0 3

root@srx3400-172% vty node1.fpc6.pic0

[flowd]FPC6.PIC0(vty)# show usp idp status

The datapath memory is being used, which will show the memory that is used on the fowarding plane. Control memory is for the routing engine. Typically, the datapath memory is to be given more attention. If the datapath memory is approaching the limit or constantly rising and staying high during off hours, there could be memory leak or memory exhaustion.
