How stable is your Access Manager?

Wondering if others are having issues with stability?

Currently have a client running 3.1.4 and reporting they have some sort
of outage almost every month or two.

Usually, these outages are related to non-responsive LAGs or the LAGs
fail to perform a redirect to the ESP or the IDPs.

Normally, if the vmc service is restarted, things are fine... for a while.

Any other experiences?

Is 3.2 better?

Thanks

Yes, we have the same issue, but ONLY on the LAGS. 3.1.4.x they'd go
non-responsive (like you couldn't even SSH/login to it). Novell seemed
inclined to blame it on that we're using XEN DomU, and not Vmwre, even
though they support XEN.

We've upgraded to MAG 3.2 and it happens less frequently, but still
occasionally. although ONLY seems to happen on my "primary" MAG in the
cluster for some reason.

Haven't been able to get Novell to figure out how to disable logging
while enabling core dumping. Normally they're tied together, but when
you do that, it'll chew through disk space and fill up the server in
under a day, which isn't good.

Admin console, IDP have always been "Fine" for us
LAG not so much, MAG much better, but not as stable as I'd like to see
it.
SSL VPN - we won't go there.
