Error Message     
 
    
    
   

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-ERR_MEM_ALLOC Memory allocation failed for internal data storage

Explanation    Memory was not available for an internal data structure. The requested operation could not be accomplished because of a low memory condition. The LC will not boot up successfully and will not be able to participate in data forwarding.

Recommended Action    Reload the LC using 'hw-module' command. If the problem recurs, reduce other system activity to ease memory demands. If conditions warrant, upgrade to a larger memory configuration. Also ensure the LC is populated with the minimum amount of memory required for proper operation.

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-ERR_THREAD_CREATE Internal OS call to create additional threads failed, [chars]

Explanation    An internal OS library returned an error. The system will usually recover from this error automatically. If the frequency of this alert increases noticeably it could indicate a OS kernel problem on the card. The LC will not boot up successfully and will not be able to participate in data forwarding. This condition can impact various processes on the LC. The LC is in unstable condition.

Recommended Action    The system will normally recover from this error without intervention. If the frequency with which this error is occurring increases substantially, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the gathered information. Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FIA_CHKPT Call to checkpoint library failed, status=[chars]

Explanation    An internal support library returned an error. The driver was not able to save data for restart ability. A restart of the FIAD process may not be NSF compliant. Any software upgrade requiring FIAD to be restarted will result in traffic loss. The system will usually recover from this error automatically. If the frequency of this alert increases noticeably it could indicate a OS kernel problem on the card.

Recommended Action    The system will normally recover from this error without intervention. If the frequency with which this error is occurring increases substantially, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the gathered information. Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

Error Message     
 
    
    
   

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FIA_CHKPT_DATA_EXISTS The driver is coming up in normal mode, but checkpoint information already exists.

Explanation    When a driver comes up in NORMAL_MODE, checkpointing data should not already exist. This indicates a mismatch in the driver state. The checkpointed data may be corrupted on the LC. Restart ability of processes may be affected.

Recommended Action    The system will normally recover from this error without intervention. If the frequency with which this error is occurring increases substantially, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the gathered information. Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FIA_CHKPT_RECOVERY_NODATA The driver is coming up in restart mode, but the checkpoint info does not exist.

Explanation    When a driver comes up in RECOVERY_MODE, checkpointing data should have already been saved to the checkpointing record by the previous life of the driver. This can impact the drivers ability to restart without affecting traffic.

Recommended Action    The system may not recover from this error automatically. A reload of the linecard should be initiated in order to recover. Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

Error Message     
 
    
    
   

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FIA_DLOPEN Failed to load [chars]

Explanation    The library (dll) named could not be found or there was an error while loading. Indicates a software installation problem. The LC will not boot up successfully and will not be able to participate in data forwarding.

Recommended Action    Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FIA_INT_ATTACH Internal OS call to process interrupts failed

Explanation    An internal OS library returned an error. Some error conditions on the LC may not be reported correctly. The system will usually recover from this error automatically. If the frequency of this alert increases noticeably it could indicate a OS kernel problem on the card.

Recommended Action    The system will normally recover from this error without intervention. This error indiactes a more fundamental issue on the LC. If the frequency with which this error is occurring increases substantially, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the gathered information. Copy the error message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log, call your Cisco technical support representative and provide the representative with the gathered information.

%FABRIC_INTERFACE_ASIC-GSR-3-FS_ERR1 [chars] : [hex]

Explanation    EE192 SerDes retimer driver error. An internal OS library returned an error. The system will usually recover from this error automatically. If the frequency of this alert increases noticeably it could indicate a OS kernel problem on the card. The LC will not boot up successfully and will not be able to participate in data forwarding. This condition can impact various processes on the LC. The LC is in unstable condition.
