Does CSM keep any buffered logs?

Hi Sir,


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?


Please advise.



Thank you.


B.Rgds,

Lim TS

  • Cisco Employee,

CSM logs are sent to the MSFC.

You view them with 'show logg'


The connection failure counter increases when the server does not respond to a SYN or if the server responds with a RESET.

Take a sniffer trace to verify what is going on.
