I have deployed CSM (part number: WS-X6066-SLB-APC) on a Catalyst 6513 running Cisco IOS software. The CSM software version is 4.2(4).
When I do the command "sh mod csm 5 reals sfarm..." repeatedly, I notice the counter "total conn failures" keeps on increasing. Below is an example output:
Cat6513#sh mod csm 5 reals sfarm SFARM1 detail
172.16.5.71, SFARM1, state = OPERATIONAL
conns = 152, maxconns = 4294967295, minconns = 0
weight = 8, weight(admin) = 8, metric = 19, remainder = 0
total conns established = 7285039, total conn failures = 1440306
172.16.5.70, SFARM1, state = OPERATIONAL
conns = 153, maxconns = 4294967295, minconns = 0
weight = 8, weight(admin) = 8, metric = 19, remainder = 1
total conns established = 7803073, total conn failures = 1525390
What does this indicative of? Is it the real servers issue or the CSM issue?
Also, does the CSM keeps any buffered logs? How to view the logs? I configured "logging buffered 16384 debugging" on the Cat6513. Are the CSM logs also sent to the switch buffered log?
