I know one way to free up buffers is to reload the router.

Is there any way i can fix the syslog buffers?i am using kiwi syslog server?

Thanks

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Thanks for the additional information. I am not expert enough on EEM to know whether there is some issue with the EEM script that would cause this. Perhaps some with more expertise in EEM might address this.

I wonder what version of code you are running and whether there might be some issue with EEM and/or syslog in that version of code?

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Mahesh,

Thanks for the update.  I think, you can ignore it for now, but eventually you are going to run out of memory and have to reboot the router to refresh. If this is in production and before it start effecting your environment, you may want to replace it.

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Mahesh,

I don't believe there is a way to adjust the Syslog buffers.  One way to test is to reload the router and then reduce the amount of info you are sending to the Syslog sever so the router does not have to use as much buffer and see if you still have the same issue.

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Reza,

How can i reduce the amount of info to syslog?

I removed logging trap  and IP  of server.

For syslog i tried logging buffer 2

2691Router#sh log
Syslog logging: enabled (11 messages dropped, 0 messages rate-limited,
                0 flushes, 0 overruns, xml disabled, filtering disabled)
    Console logging: level debugging, 28 messages logged, xml disabled,
                     filtering disabled
    Monitor logging: level debugging, 0 messages logged, xml disabled,
                     filtering disabled
    Buffer logging: level critical, 2 messages logged, xml disabled, *************************************************
                    filtering disabled
    Logging Exception size (4096 bytes)
    Count and timestamp logging messages: disabled

No active filter modules.

    Trap logging: disabled

as above it only fixed the buffer logging not syslog logging?

How can i fix the syslog logging --info?

thanks

Mahesh

Probably the best way to reduce the amount of info to syslog is to change the severity level of what you send to the syslog server.

In the original post it looks as if the leak might be related to EEM. Are you running EEM scripts on this router? If so perhaps there is something that might be done in the EEM scripts to reduce or eliminate the leaks?

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Rick,

Thanks for reply.

Yes i was running script below

event manager applet High_CPU

action 0.1 syslog msg "CPU Utilization is high"

action 0.2 cli command "enable"

action 0.4 cli command "show log | append flash:CPU_Profile.txt"

action 0.5 cli command "show process cpu sorted | append"

action 0.6 cli command "show interfaces | append"

action 1.1 cli command "configure terminal"

action 1.2 cli command "profile xxxxxxx yyyyyyyyZ"

action 1.3 cli command "profile start"

action 2.3 syslog msg "Entering TCLSH"

action 2.4 cli command "tclsh"

action 2.5 cli command "after 240000"

action 2.6 cli command "exit"

action 2.9 syslog msg "Exiting TCLSH"

action 3.0 cli command "profile stop"

action 3.1 cli command "show profile terse | append flash:CPU_Profile.txt"

action 3.2 cli command "clear profile"

action 3.3 cli command "unprofile all"

action 4.1 syslog msg "Finished logging information to flash:CPU_Profile.txt...

"

action 4.2 cli command "end"

!

I removed the script and save config and reloaded the router but it again shows --

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Mahesh,

Can you disable Syslog and see if this goes away.  Can you also post you syslog config?

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Reza,

Do you need this info--

2691Router#sh log
Syslog logging: enabled (11 messages dropped, 0 messages rate-limited,
                0 flushes, 0 overruns, xml disabled, filtering disabled)
    Console logging: disabled
    Monitor logging: level debugging, 0 messages logged, xml disabled,
                     filtering disabled
    Buffer logging: level debugging, 22 messages logged, xml disabled,
                    filtering disabled
    Logging Exception size (4096 bytes)
    Count and timestamp logging messages: enabled

No active filter modules.

    Trap logging: disabled

which command i should use to get the syslog config?

Thanks

Mahesh

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Mahesh,

Try disabling syslog completely and see if the problem goes away. You can also enable it later.

also post sh run

2691 Router Buffer leak due to syslog

Hi Reza,

I have disabled logging buffer   to the router.

also i have attached sh run from the router under first post.

i did sh log

691Router#sh log
Syslog logging: enabled (11 messages dropped, 0 messages rate-limited,***************************
                0 flushes, 0 overruns, xml disabled, filtering disabled)
    Console logging: disabled
    Monitor logging: level debugging, 0 messages logged, xml disabled,
                     filtering disabled
    Buffer logging: disabled, xml disabled,
                    filtering disabled
    Logging Exception Disabled
    Count and timestamp logging messages: enabled

No active filter modules.

    Trap logging: disabled

it still shows syslog logging enabled  -- how can i disable it?

Thanks

Mahesh,

You config looks ok.  I don't see a Syslog server config in your sh run.

Is there a "sh buffers failures" you can try?

This is a memory issue. I would try a different version of IOS to see if you can clear this.

Hi Reza,

I got different IOS  c2691-advipservicesk9-mz.124-25d.

Its still same issue.

So if memory leak due to syslog is not big issue then i can ignore it for now?

Thanks

Hi Reza,

Thanks for help again.

So far router is working ok now.

There is no physical memory leak.

I can live with it for now.
