Cisco 2911 - %SYS-3-INVMEMINT: Invalid memory action (malloc) at interrupt level

We have a Cisco 2911 router. We installed a EHWIC-4ESG module and configured the router based on configuration below.

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 15.0(1r)M9, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

System image file is "flash0:c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M1.bin"

Cisco CISCO2911/K9 (revision 1.0) with 483328K/40960K bytes of memory.

7 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces

1 terminal line

1 Virtual Private Network (VPN) Module

DRAM configuration is 64 bits wide with parity enabled.

255K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

255744K bytes of ATA System CompactFlash 0 (Read/Write)

interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0

description Inside GigabitEthernet0/0/0

switchport access vlan 11

no ip address

no cdp enable

!

interface Vlan11

ip address 192.168.11.1 255.255.255.252

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no ip proxy-arp

ip flow ingress

ip nat inside

ip virtual-reassembly in

no mop enabled

We enabled the interface and VLAN 11. The interface/VLAN is working properly but we are getting the following log messages. Any idea what the problem might be?

Cisco 2911 - %SYS-3-INVMEMINT: Invalid memory action (malloc) at

This error usually means memory issue.  If you take out the EHWIC-4ESG module from the router does the problem go away? if yes, try a different slot if that does not help then replace the module.

We took out the EHWIC-4ESG module from the router and the problem went away. We also tried a different slot and replaced the module. The problem still exists.

It is possible that there is a hardware problem or that there is a software problem. If the problem goes away when you remove the EHWIC that helps to narrow down the problem. If you have replaced the module and still have the problem on a different hardware then it would seem to point toward a software problem. The easy solution might be to try a different version of code.

If the router is under a maintenance contract it might also be good to open a case with Cisco TAC.
