CEF: state msg

Unanswered Question
May 19th, 2008

I have noticed that we seem to be incrementing memory allocation against the memory allocating-process "CEF: state msg". I cannot find an explination of this statement.

Could someone please shed some light as I beleive we have had this before, but a reboot solved the issue. I am worried that this may be more serious than first thought. Currently the users accessed through this stack are not experiencing any issues. I am unable to reboot the stack in hours, but I want to get to the bottom of this so that we can act should anything go "pop" in the future.

CEF is not running on this stack so I am unsure as to why this error is appearing.

Sh cef status

CEF Status:

Thought it might be, but it didnt come up in the bug tool kit thing.

We have 9 other stacks with the same IOS and no such issue.
