A device is generating lots of events. When we have a look at them, memory is fine. I have read about "CSCsi10953 Bug Details DFM need way to show Insufficient Memory correctly for Modular IOS Switch" , but our DFM version is newer, LMS 3.1 with DFM 3.1.0.

Any suggestion? Threshold is 5%.

What type of device is this? What version of code is it running? This bug essentially added support for reporting on insufficient free memory for modular IOS switches.

it's a Cisco Catalyst 6509 Switch:

SC_JZ_1_1 uptime is 4 days, 22 hours, 29 minutes

Uptime for this control processor is 4 days, 22 hours, 28 minutes

Time since SC_JZ_1_1 switched to active is 4 days, 22 hours, 28 minutes

Post the details of the InsufficientFreeMemory event from this switch. That will help identify the pool in question.

But now is not active, it happens maybe today two times, tomorrow any time, but after tomorrow again, and only active for 5-10 minutes

Post the SNMP Walk output the next time it goes active. To me, it looks as though the event may be valid. Your processor free memory is too low.
