%FORWARDING-FIB-4-RSRC_LOW CEF running low on [chars] resource memory. CEF will now begin resource constrained forwarding. Only route deletes will be handled in this state, which may result in mismatch between RIB/CEF. Traffic loss on certain prefixes can be expected. The CEF will automatically resume normal operation, once the resource utilization returns to normal level

Explanation    The fib_mgr process has detected that average utilization for specified resource has risen above a predefined high watermark value, and has enterred resource contrained forwarding mode. In this mode, the cef will only handle route deletes which may potentially freeup some memory. Due to this operational mode, the CEF/RIB will be out of sync. Once routes are deleted and resource utilization level drops to acceptable levels again, cef will come out of this operational mode and resume normal operation.

Recommended Action    Run show cef resource command and check which resource(s) are running low on memory. Any action that reduces number of routes for this protocol (results in route delete events to free up resources below predefined level) will eventually result in the cef returning to normal operation after few seconds.

Error Message     
 
    
    
   

%FORWARDING-FIB-5-ROUTE_UPDATE_DROP [chars]

Explanation    An internal software error occurred and FIB had to throw away a route update

Recommended Action    Try restarting the fib process to see if the problem goes away.

Error Message     
 
    
    
   

%FORWARDING-FIB-6-RSRC_OK CEF resource state has returned to normal. CEF has exited resource constrained operation and normal forwarding has been restored

Explanation    The fib_mgr process had previously detected that the hardware,software resources required for cef operation were running low, and had enterred resource constrained forwarding. Now resources have been restored and cef has resumed normal operation.

Recommended Action    None.
