I have been experiencing a random router crash on a 7206 router. Link states do not go down, but traffic stops passing and router can not be accessed on any of its Ip interfaces. I have two ways into this router running OSPF. Once the router is rebooted connectivity is restored for about 10-12 hours, then goes dead again. I am getting this PA bandwidth points error when running a show ver. I checked the configuration guide and I am not over the max FE100 interfaces for this router. I also have the interface spreadout across both internal buses. I got an fe100 in port 5, the other in port 6 and the third is on the I/O controller on board. I have attached the sh ver below.
I have other routers with the same exact config and do not receive this error. I am not convinced that this is the reason the router crashed, but need some info.
