3550 switches and services dropping

Over the weekend we have several 3550 switches. I use a tool to monitor the interfaces and telnet & HTTP services. Around 5 pm on sunday all services dropped but the interfaces were still up and I was able to ping the switches. Everything was working except I was unable to telnet / HTTP into them.

I attempted to connect a console cable to them and was unable to get into them.

When I attempted to log in with hyperterminal I got the following error

" %% Low on momory; Try again later"

This happened on 10 switches all at the same time. After I rebooted one of them I was able to connect to it fine. I was unable to get any good logs to determine the problem though.

Has anyone here ever seen this?

Re: 3550 switches and services dropping


There are several software issues associated with the error message that you are getting.This can be verified after looking at the " show version" from your switch. Please paste the same.
