Cisco ONS 15530 System Alarms and Error Messages


This document lists and describes system alarms and error messages for the Cisco ONS 15530. The system software sends these alarms and error messages to the console (and, optionally, to a logging server on another system) during operation. Not all error messages indicate problems with your system. Some are purely informational, while others might help diagnose problems with links, internal hardware, or the system software.

About System Alarms and Error Messages

System alarms are associated with a physical entity such as a module or a chassis. Unlike simple error messages, the state of an alarm persists until an assert or clear event changes its state.

When an alarm state changes, you see an associated error message describing whether the alarm is asserted or cleared. The associated error message also displays the severity and description of the entity plus the alarm type.

You can display the current state of alarms by using the show facility-alarm status command on the active CPU switch module, as in the following example:

Switch# show facility-alarm status 
System Totals  Critical: 0  Major: 2  Minor: 1

Source              Severity      Description [Index]
------              --------      -------------------
Power Supply 1      MAJOR         Power supply unit has failed [0]
Gigab4/0/4          INFO          Keep-alive timeout event [12]
PSC card 5          MINOR         Unprotected. Peer missing [9]
Wavep2/0/0          MAJOR         Low alarm threshold exceeded for
                                  Receive Power (in dBm)
Wavep2/0/0          INFO          Low warning threshold exceeded for
                                  Receive Power (in dBm)

Note The number that appears at the beginning of the description is the index of the alarm.


How to Read System Alarms and Error Messages

The list of system alarms and error messages is organized according to the system facility that produces the messages, in alphabetical order. Within each system facility section, messages are listed alphabetically by mnemonics. Each error message is followed by an explanation and a recommended action. System alarms and error messages appear only when the system remains operational.

Error message severity levels correspond to the keywords assigned by the logging global configuration commands that define where and at what level these messages appear. The default is to log messages to the console at the debugging level (7).

System error messages begin with a percent sign and are structured as follows:

%FACILITY-SEVERITY-MNEMONIC : Message-text

FACILITY is a code consisting of two or more uppercase letters that indicate the facility to which the alarm or error message refers. A facility is a hardware device, a protocol, or a module of the system software. Table 1 lists the system facility codes.

SEVERITY is a single-digit code that reflects the severity of the condition. The SEVERITY code for system alarms (shown in Table 2) and error messages (shown in Table 3) are different.

System alarm SEVERITY codes range from 0 to 3 and reflect the severity of the alarm. The lower the number, the more serious the alarm. Table 2 lists the severity levels.

Table 2 Alarm Message Severity Levels 

Level
Description

0 - critical

Critical condition

1 - major

Immediate action needed

2 - minor

Minor alarm condition

3 - informational

Informational message only


Error message SEVERITY codes range from 0 to 7 and reflect the severity of the condition. The lower the number, the more serious the situation. Table 3 lists the severity levels.

Table 3 System Error Message Severity Levels 

Level
Description

0 - emergency

System unusable

1 - alert

MNEMONIC is a code that uniquely identifies the error message.

Message-text is a text string that describes the condition. This portion of the message might contain 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].

Table 4 lists the representations of variable fields and the type of information in the fields.

A sample error message follows:

%LCMDC-3-EOP_NOLG_PALM: Egress Loss of Light Prealarm: Slot [dec] Subcard [dec] Port [dec]

Meaning of Ingress and Egress in Error Messages

If the term "ingress" appears in an error message, it refers to client interfaces and the fault is associated with the client equipment. This term appears in the following example:

%LCMDC-3-FH_ILOSY_ALM: Ingress FC/ESCON Loss of Sync; Slot [dec] Subcard [dec] Port [dec]

If the term "egress" appears in an error message, it refers to a transponder wave interface on the trunk side, and the fault originates from the remote node. This term appears in the following example:

%LCMDC-3-ECDRLK_ALM : Egress CDR Locking error; Slot [dec] Subcard [dec] Port [dec]

Error Message Traceback Reports

A number of messages describe internal errors and contain traceback information. This information is very important and should be included when you report a problem to your technical support representative.

The following sample error message includes traceback information:

Error Message    -Process= "Exec", level= 0, pid= 17
-Traceback= 1A82 1AB4 6378 A072 1054 1860

System Alarms and Error Messages

This section includes the Cisco ONS 15530 software error messages. They are grouped according to the facility codes listed in Table 1.

APS

Error Message    %APS-2-INITSYS:

Explanation    A software error occurred during initialization of the APS subsystem.

Recommended Action    Check for sufficient CPU switch module memory.

Error Message    %APS-3-PORT_FAIL: Port Fail On:

Explanation    The APS subsystem receives a port fail indication from the driver subsystem. The specified interface detected a failure condition (for example, loss of light).

Recommended Action    Isolate the cause of the failure and restore the interface to normal operational condition.

Error Message    %APS-1-NO_ACTIVE: No Active Port In Group:

Explanation    After an active interface failure, the system switches over to the standby interface if APS is enabled. This message appears if after a switchover the system finds no active interface; that is, both working and protection interfaces are found to be nonoperational.

Recommended Action    Isolate the cause of the failure on both the working and protection interfaces.

Error Message    %APS-6-AUTOFOVER:

Explanation    The APS hardware successfully switched over to the standby interface after the failure of the active interface.

Recommended Action    Isolate the cause of the failure of the previous active interface and restore it to a normal operational condition.

Error Message    %APS-2-INTRNLERR:

Explanation    The APS software detected an internal error.

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.

Error Message    %APS-6-ENAUTFOVR:

Explanation    The APS software enables hardware to perform APS actions for failures detected by the hardware.

Recommended Action    This message is informational only.

Error Message    %APS-6-DISAUTFOV:

Explanation    APS disabled autofailover for the indicated group.

Recommended Action    Check the condition of the protection line in the corresponding APS group.

Error Message    %APS-6-ADJUSTMODE:

Explanation    The local APS group was configured for bidirectional operation but the associated remote APS group was configured for unidirectional operation. The local network element detects the mismatch, changes the operation to unidirectional, and posts this message.

Recommended Action    Configure the remote APS group for bidirectional operation or the local node to unidirectional.

Error Message    %APS-6-BIDIRSWCH:

Explanation    The local network element posts this message only after an APS switchover that is triggered by an APS request from the remote network element.

Recommended Action    This message is informational only.

Error Message    %APS-2-CHNLCFGMM: 

Explanation    The local network element posts this message if it detects a Far End Protection Failure condition. This failure is detected if the Far End Protection Defect count exceeds a threshold. The local network element detects a Far End Protection Defect when it receives a remote APS message with request set to SF (signal fail) and request channel set to 0 (null or protection channel).

Recommended Action    Isolate the cause of the failure on the protection channel on the remote network element.

Error Message    %APS-2-PSBF:

Explanation    The local network element posts this message if it detects a Protection Switch Byte Failure. This failure is detected when the Protection Switch Byte defect count exceeds a threshold. A Protection Switch Byte Defect is detected when one of the following happens:

1. The remote APS request is not one of the supported requests.
2. The remote APS request channel number is invalid. For 1+1 APS, the channel number must be 0 or 1.
3. Operation is bidirectional and neither local nor remote network element is sending a REVERSE-REQUEST, and the remote APS request is of lower priority than the local APS request.
4. Operation is bidirectional and the sequence number in the remote APS REVERSE-REQUEST does
not match the sequence number of the most recent APS request sent by the local network element.

Recommended Action    Check for failures on the APS communication channel. Isolate the cause for such failures and restore the communication channel to working condition.

Error Message    %APS-2-MODEMISMATCH:

Explanation    The local network element posts this message if the local APS group was configured for bidirectional operation but the associated remote APS group was configured for unidirectional operation. A mismatch in mode (unidirectional or bidirectional) was detected.

Recommended Action    Configure the remote APS group for bidirectional operation or the local node to unidirectional operation.

Error Message    %APS-2-CHNLMISMATCH: 

Explanation    The received bridged channel number (in the REVERSE-REQUEST from the remote network element) does not match the request channel number in the APS request sent by the local network element. This message only applies to bidirectional operation.

For 1+1 APS, this message is normally not posted unless the transmit bridged channel number in the REVERSE-REQUEST from the remote network element is somehow corrupted or there is a bug in the APS software itself.

Recommended Action    Check for any failures on the APS communication channel. If the APS communication channel is operational, contact Cisco TAC.

Error Message    %APS-2-FEPF:

Explanation    The APS subsystem fails to create a UDP socket for exchanging APS channel protocol messages over an APS message channel configured for IP. This usually is due to a low memory condition in the system.

Recommended Action    Reload the system software.

Error Message    %APS-2-NOSOCKET: Failed To Open Socket

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

For Emergencies only —  security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

For Nonemergencies —  psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532


Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product (for example, GnuPG) to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work with information that has been encrypted with PGP versions 2.x through 9.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.

If you do not have or use PGP, contact PSIRT at the aforementioned e-mail addresses or phone numbers before sending any sensitive material to find other means of encrypting the data.

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests, or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is down, or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired, while most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
