I am investigating an incident described as a sudden occurrence of a "race" condition on a 6509E core switch. I'm an engineer but not a network engineer. I'm looking for answers and the right questions to ask the net-ops team.
I'm sure these questions beg more questions but here is a start.
1. Are 6509E devices prone to "sudden" race conditions?
2. Where are the device's error logs and command history logs stored?
3. What are the possible causes of a "race" condition in a 6509E Switch that is only stopped by powering down?
Any suggestions on what questions to ask or information to request?
