Diameter Base System Messages


This appendix lists and describes Cisco IOS Diameter base system messages. The system software sends these messages to the console (and, optionally, to a logging server on another system) during operation. Not all system messages indicate problems with your system. Some are purely informational, and others might help diagnose problems with communications lines, internal hardware, or the system software.

This document includes Diameter base system messages only. For a complete list of all IOS system messages, please refer to the Cisco IOS Software System Messages document at:

How to Read System Messages

System messages begin with a percent sign (%) and are structured as follows:

%FACILITY-SUBFACILITY-SEVERITY-MNEMONIC: Message-text

FACILITY is a code consisting of two or more uppercase letters that indicate the facility to which the message refers. A facility can be a hardware device, a protocol, or a module of the system software.

SEVERITY is a single-digit code from 0 to 7 that reflects the severity of the condition. The lower the number, the more serious the situation.

MNEMONIC is a code that uniquely identifies the error message.

Message-text is a text string describing the condition. This portion of the message sometimes contains detailed information about the event, including terminal port numbers, network addresses, or addresses that correspond to locations in the system memory address space. Because the information in these variable fields changes from message to message, it is represented here by short strings enclosed in square brackets ([ ]). A decimal number, for example, is represented as [dec].

%sDOWN"

Explanation    Connection to a configured diameter peer is down.

Recommended Action    This message indicates a diameter peer has gone down. Check the connection parameters and if the server is UP. Is yes, check the parameters negotiated in Capability-Exchange messages.

Check the diameter peer indicated on the configured options or Contact Cisco technical representative with the exact log as it appears with the debug.
