We have struggled with stability issues on v18 of the firewall. Multiple firewalls have experienced instability with VPN connections, which slowly start to disconnect and drop, access to the interface starts to slow until access to anything on the firewall has come to a complete halt. The only course of action is to reboot the firewall. My question is first - have others experience similar issues? Second, if so, has MR3 helped bring stability back to the firewall? Currently, we have reverted all firewalls with this issue back to v17.5 where stability is restored.
Are there still problems with the firewalls halting completly without repsonding?
