Isn't the second line a malformed syslog, without the Facility and Mnemonic fields? Is this an IOS bug?


May 29 08:37:13.110: %OIR-SP-6-INSPS: Power supply inserted in slot 2

May 29 08:37:13.110: SP: unknown power supply in slot 2

May 29 08:37:14.066: %OIR-SP-6-REMPS: Power supply removed from slot 2

Buginf logging is enabled by default. You'd have to turn it off with "no logging buginf".

This is most likely not a syslog message at all, but a "buginf" message. Buginf messages do not have to correspond to the syslog format scheme. What version of code is this?

Confirmed. This is a buginf message. This message is displayed when the PS inserted is not a known PS type for the device. This is not a good thing. Either the code needs to be updated, the PS is bad, or the PS cannot be used in this device.

I don't see "logging buginf" configured. Is it enabled implicitly by default, in this version or all IOS? Does it get sent to the syslog server anyway? The troubling part is a proper syslog "%C6KPWR-SP-3-PSUNKNOWN: Unknown power supply in slot 2" does not get generated until 2-8 mins after those three lines appeared.
