What is the mean as '%LFD-CFC8-6-RESOURCE'?

Unanswered Question
Jun 2nd, 2010

At these day, We are installing the C7600 with MPLS P router.

and inserted C6724 line card to C7600 chassis, and enable 'mpls ip' on that interface port.

the 6724 has CFC daughtor board card,

when I enable mpls ip on 6724 with CFC, the log message was occurred as following,

'Jun  2 14:58:33.446 KST: %LFD-CFC8-6-RESOURCE: MPLS supported in hardware forwarding only'

I have searched the log message on cco, google, but can't find the log description.

the key point is that above log message appeared on 6724 with CFC, but 6724 with DFC has no log message like above.

So I think that the log message is related in 6700 with CFC, not DFC. simple label switching support on SUP720-3BXL, not depended on linecard.

I would like to know the specific information above log. and check the side effect when we enable 'mpls ip' on interface.

I have this problem too.

Basically, that log message means that MPLS is not supported by software on that specific module + forwarding card combination.

From my understanding, the WX-X6724-SFP LC only supports MPLS in hardware mode with the use of a DFC daughter card and not in software mode with a CFC by relying on the supervisor for the forwarding process.

Hope this helps.
