High vmalloc usage-checkpoint-gaia,secureplatform

Vendor: checkpoint

OS: gaia,secureplatform

Description:
indeni will alert when usage of vmalloc is high.

Remediation Steps:
Review sk84700.

How does this work?
Check the vmalloc limit and usage by reviewing the output of “cat /proc/meminfo”.

Why is this important?
If the allocation of virtual memory in the operating system reaches the limit, there could be severe memory-related issues. More information is available in the following Check Point KB article: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solutionid=sk84700

Without Indeni how would you find this?
An administrator could login and manually check this.
