Hi Everyone,

I'm getting this MALLOCFAIL error and then after a while the switch crashed.

%SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 774966538 bytes failed from 0x1B33220, alignment 0  Pool: Processor  Free: 23956224  Cause: Not enough free memory Alternate Pool: None  Free: 0  Cause: No Alternate pool -Process= "SMI IBC server process", ipl= 0, pid= 175

After rebooting twice the switch stabilized.

My question are:

-anyone, familiar with SMI IBC server process?

-anyone, know how to read this error?

By the way, it's a 3560 switch.


I have this problem too.

Are you familiar with SMI IBC Server? It requires a memory allocation of more than 1GB which is even larger than the RAM.

By the way thanks for the docu.
