Introduction to VQE System Messages

This file lists and describes the Cisco VQE system messages and recovery procedures. The VQE software writes these messages to the following locations:

  • On VQE-S and VQE Tools servers, VQE system messages are written to the /var/log/vqe/vqe.log file.
  • VQE Client Channel Configuration Delivery Server (VCDS) system messages are also written to the /var/log/vqe/vqe.log file.

Not all system messages indicate problems with VQE. Some messages are purely informational, while others may help diagnose problems with communications links or the operating system (for example, file permission problems). Only critical messages are displayed on the CDE110 console.

For information on VQE-S AMT and VCPT logging output, see the Cisco CDA Visual Quality Experience Application User Guide.

System Message Structure

System messages are structured as follows:

     FACILITY-SEVERITY-MNEMONIC: Message-text

FACILITY code
The facility code consists of two or more uppercase letters that indicate the facility to which the message refers. The following table lists the VQE facility codes.
Code VQE Facility
STUN_SERVER STUN Server (VQE-S)
VQES_CP VQE-S VQE-S Control Plane
VQES_DP_CLIENT VQE-S Data Plane Client
VQES_DP VQE-S Data Plane
VQES_MLB_Client VQE-S Multicast Load Balancer Client
VQES_MLB VQE-S Multicast Load Balancer
VQES_PM VQE-S Process Monitor
VQE_CFGTOOL VQE Configuration Tool (vqe_cfgtool command)
VQE_CFG VQE channel configuration
VQE_UTILS VQE Utilities
VQE_RPC VQE-S Remote Procedure Call facility
VQE_RTP VQE Real-Time Transport Protocol
(Many of these messages are related to RTP Control Protocol (RTCP)).
VQE_RTSP VQE Real Time Streaming Protocol (VCDS)

SEVERITY level
The severity level 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. Messages of severity 7 (Debugging) are not described in this appendix. The message severity levels are as follows:
  • 0--Emergency (System is unusable.)
  • 1--Alert (Immediate action is required.)
  • 2--Critical (Critical condition)
  • 3--Error (Error condition)
  • 4--Warning (Warning condition)
  • 5--Notification (Normal but significant condition)
  • 6--Informational (Information message only)
  • 7--Debugging (Message that appears during debugging only)
MNEMONIC code
The combination of the facility code and the mnemonic code uniquely identifies the error message.
Message-text
Message-text is a text string that describes the condition. The text string sometimes contains detailed information about the event, including port numbers and network addresses. Because variable fields change from message to message, they are represented here by short strings enclosed in square brackets ([ ]). A decimal number, for example, is represented as [dec]. The following table lists the variable fields in messages.
Representation Type of Information 
[chars] or [char] Character string
[dec] Decimal
[hex] Hexadecimal integer
[int] Integer
[num] Number

 

System Message Example

The following is an example of a VQE system message:

     VQES_CP-3-CP_CHANNEL_DELETE_ERR: Failed to delete a channel due to [chars]

  • VQES_CP is the facility code.
  • 3 is the severity level.
  • CP_CHANNEL_DELETE_ERR is the mnemonic code.
  • “Failed to delete a channel due to [chars]” is the message text.

Basic Recovery Procedures

In the Recommended Actions of the system messages, certain recovery procedures that VQE users should perform are referred to numerous times. The following table provides references to where you can find more information on these recovery procedures.

Note:  In the following table, all references are to sections found in the Cisco CDA Visual Quality Experience Application User Guide .

The Data Plane process will continue to function, though in some cases it may fail to perform error repairs, particularly when heavily loaded, due to contention between non-time-critical system activities and time-critical receipt and transmission of video data. Failure to assign the data handling thread to an isolated CPU may be due to: no CPUs being specified via the \isolcpus\ kernel boot parameter in /boot/grub/grub.conf; specifying an invalid \setcpu\ option value for the VQE-S Data Plane process; or a software installation problem which prevents the Data Plane initialization process from finding an isolated CPU. The text of the error message gives a more specific reason for the failure which should help to determine the more specific cause of the failure.

    Recommended Action  Check to make sure that the file /boot/grub/grub.conf contains the kernel boot parameter string isolcpus=n, where n is in the range 0..3. If the setcpu option has been specified in the vqes_data_plane section of the .vqes.conf file, make sure that its value matches the value specified in the isolcpus parameter string in /boot/grub/conf or remove the parameter from the configuration entirely. Restart the VQE-S application.

Error Message  VQES_DP-3-VQE_FBT_REQ_ERROR: Failed to complete operation on a Feedback Target address: [chars] [chars] [chars].

    Explanation  The Control Plane failed to complete a requested operation on a Feedback Target address. The failure may have left some Feedback Target addresses installed which should have been removed, or may have left some Feedback Target addresses removed which should have been installed. In the case of extra Feedback Target addresses the VQE-S application may advertise services for channels for which it is not actually able to provide service. This may cause VQE-S operations which could have been directed to a different VQE-S to be incorrectly directed to the VQE-S which cannot provide the service. In the case of missing Feedback Target addresses, clients may not be able to send requests to the VQE-S which could have successfully serviced the requests. In either case, some VQE-S operations which could have been successfully completed may fail. The text of the error message identifies the operation that was not completed successfully, the Feedback Target address, and some additional detail on the cause of the failure.

    Recommended Action  Restart the VQE-S application.

    Recommended Action  Refer to the Cisco CDA Visual Quality Experience Application User Guide for information on configuring VQE-S. Modify vcdb.conf and apply the configuration. If the condition persists, contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information.

Error Message  VQES_DP-4-DP_CORE_UTIL_EXCEEDS_LIMIT: Maximum CPU utilization has been exceeded on core [dec].

    Explanation  The Data Plane has exceeded the maximum utilization for the given core while reserving resources for a new channel. The Data Plane process will continue to function, though in some cases it may fail to perform error repairs or RCC operations, due to the core being overloaded. A core overload condition may be transient if the amount of error repairs being handled by that core is unusually high when the new channel is created, or the condition may be caused by too many channels being configured, in which case the condition will persist.

    Recommended Action  Correct any non-standard system configuration or installation that has been performed. Copy the error message exactly as it appears in the system log. Issue the vqereport command to gather data that may help identify the nature of the error. If you cannot determine the nature of the error from the error message text or from the vqereport command output, contact your Cisco technical support representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information.

Error Message  VQES_DP-4-DP_SHUTDOWN_FAILURE: Abnormal condition encountered while shutting down Data Plane (reason: [chars], linux error: [Linux error]).

    Explanation  A problem was encountered in shutting down the Data Plane process. The VQE-S Process Monitor will normally restart the Data Plane and any other affected processes as required, and normal VQE-S operation should continue. The text of the error message gives more specific information about which step of the shutdown process was being performed when the problem was encountered and also a standard Linux error message associated with the step that failed.

    Recommended Action  In most cases, the normal operation of the VQE-S application will resume automatically after the Process Monitor restarts the VQE-S application processes, and no further action is required. However if the VQE-S application should fail to resume normal operation after this error message has been seen, then restart the VQE-S application manually.

Error Message  VQES_DP-4-MP_LOW_PERF_OPTION: The VQE-S has been started with a performance affecting option enabled.This option removes a performance enhancing internal limit of the VQE-S and could lead to system instability or interruption of Error Repair and Rapid Channel Change functionality.

    Explanation  When this option is enabled, the VQE-S ignores a limit used in processing video data. This may cause the VQE-S to consume a more than nominal amount of CPU time. In this mode the VQE-S functionality may be affected.

    Recommended Action  No action is required.

VQES_DP-5

Error Message  VQES_DP-5-DP_LOST_UPCALL: A notification sent from the Cache Manager to a client process was lost (reason: [chars]). Normal operation will continue.

    Explanation  A notification message sent from the Cache Manager within the Data Plane to a client process was lost. The client process will detect the loss and re-synchronize its state with the Cache Manager shortly, and normal operation will continue. The client process may react somewhat more slowly than normal to the changed state within the Cache Manager, and as a result the operation of the VQE-S application for a particular channel may be impaired for a few seconds before normal operation for that channel is restored. The text of the error message identifies a more specific reason for the lost message.

    Recommended Action  No action is required.

Error Message  VQES_DP-5-DP_RTP_SRC_MGMT_ERROR: Failed to complete an operation on an RTP source for channel [chars] (reason: [chars]).

    Recommended Action  No action is required.

Error Message  VQES_DP-5-DP_TOO_MANY_SOURCES_GLOBAL: Could not recognize a new traffic source for channel [chars] because the Data Plane is already receiving from the maximum number of sources that it is able to support across all channels.

    Explanation  The Data Plane process has detected incoming RTP traffic from a new source, but must ignore the traffic from that source because it is already receiving traffic from too many other sources, across all channels. The VQE-S may continue normal operation if one of the sources it has already recognized is the desired source, but may fail to operate correctly for the channel if the new source is the one that it should be receiving traffic from. Also, the new source will not be reported by the VQE-S application among its lists of known sources, and this may make troubleshooting of network configuration problems involving multiple sources more difficult. The affected channel is reported in the text of the error message. Other channels are not immediately affected. However, other channels on the system are likely to encounter the same problem as soon as they attempt to recognize new traffic sources. This problem is most likely due to a network configuration issue which causes multiple sources to be sending simultaneouly on a single channel.

    Recommended Action  Correct any network configuration issue which might cause the VQE-S application to be detecting extra sources for any of the channels being received by the VQE-S application.

Error Message  VQES_DP-5-DP_TOO_MANY_SOURCES: Could not recognize a new traffic source for channel [chars] because the Data Plane is already receiving from the maximum number of sources (limit [dec]) for that channel as may be recognized at once for a single channel.

    Explanation  The Data Plane process has detected incoming RTP traffic from a new source, but must ignore the traffic from that source because it is already receiving traffic from too many other sources for that channel. The VQE-S may continue normal operation if one of the sources it has already recognized is the desired source, but may fail to operate correctly for the channel if the new source is the one that it should be receiving traffic from. Also, the new source will not be reported by the VQE-S application among its lists of known sources, and this may make troubleshooting of network configuration problems involving multiple sources more difficult. The affected channel is reported in the text of the error message. All other channels are unaffected. This problem is most likely due to a network configuration issue which causes multiple sources to be sending simultaneouly on a single channel.

    Recommended Action  If the VQE-S application is functioning correctly for the channel indicated in the error message, then no action is required. If the VQE-S application is not functioning correctly for the channel indicated in the error message, then correct any network configuration issue which might cause the VQE-S application to be detecting more than one traffic source for the channel indicated in the error message.
