Hierarchy Level


By default, the amount of IDP memory used for application identification packet memory is established as a percentage of all IDP memory. In most cases, the default value is adequate.

If a deployment exhibits an excessive number of ignored IDP sessions due to application identification memory allocation failures, use the max-packet-memory-ratio option to set application identification packet memory limit at a higher percentage of available IDP memory. This memory is only used by IDP in cases where application identification delays identifying an application. Acceptable values are between 5 percent and 40 percent.
