session-memory (resource-manager)


Hierarchy Level


Configure resource manager session-memory options to control the behavior of the device based on the sessions that the device is handling.


  • threshold threshold-Configure the threshold limit to let resource-manager take actions. The range is 1 to 100 percent.

  • session-aggressive-ageout early-ageout seconds-When you enable aggressive ageout, sessions with timeout less than the early value, become invalid. Range is 1 through 65,535 seconds.

  • drop-flows-When you mark a session as a drop-flow, it bypasses the first path for each new packet, which matches the original drop session, for next 4 seconds only. This configuration drops the packets that match the drop-flows.

  • log-This configuration logs messages when the resource threshold is exceeded and falls back under the threshold.

  • alarm-This configuration sends an SNMP trap when the session usage exceeds the threshold.
