Last night, the C6509-E do a unexpected reload.

In the crashinfo, I can see that the last error message before the reload, was as follows:

%C6K_PLATFORM-SP-2-PEER_RESET: SP is being reset by the RP

I consulted the cisco website about this error message and what I found was the following:


Error Message    C6K_PLATFORM-2-PEER_RESET: [chars] is being reset by

the [chars]

Explanation    This message indicates that the local CPU is being reset by the peer CPU when the peer CPU reloads because of exceptions.

Recommended Action    Copy the message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log.
