The system software
sends syslog (system) messages to the console (and, optionally, to a logging
server on another device). Not all messages indicate a problem with your
device. Some messages are purely informational, while others might help
diagnose problems with links, internal hardware, or the device software.
System 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 ].
PORT-3-IF_UNSUPPORTED_TRANSCEIVER: Transceiver for interface

as "No action is required." It might involve a fix or a recommendation to
contact technical support as shown in the following example:
