I saw the below %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL log in my Catalyst switch for 30 mins.
After that there is no messages at all for past 1 week and switch is running good and processor memory usage is around 7% as of now.
Why this message got diaplayed at that time? Is it because of some virus attack or some other thing?
