Hello, so in my GNS3 topology I've utilized a ASA 8.42 virtual firewall device and in general the QEMU emulation and console functions work fine. However I have discovered that if it is left running for about half a day it'll eventually segfault endlessly (reboot loop) as shown below. Is this a bug with GNS3 or...?

Imo, this is more a problem with Qemu. Don't think we can do much. Maybe you can try other version of Qemu and let us know if this change something.

Thanks,

Hm, maybe this is due to the patched nature of the GNS3 qemu binary?

Don't think so, the patch essentially adds UDP tunnel support. The patch isn't necessary for Qemu versions >= 1.1

Yes and no. Depending of your platform, recent Qemu versions can be unstable when running ASA. What platform and Qemu version you used?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.8, I'm using QEMU 1.1 from your sourceforge repository.
