diagnostic error message Catalyst 6513 SWITCH

·  Platform type: Cisco Catalyst 6513 Switch

·  Release Version/Firmware/IOS: “s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH.bin"

· Problem Statement: System diagnostic reports on module number 12 show that the online tests for the system variable number “36, TestErrorCounterMonitor” has failed the diagnostics tests five times.

Q1: When do logs get added into the diagnostic event log, if the test is running every 30min.

Q2: does it create a log entry every time it fails or only once it exceeds its defined threshold

Q3: what is the TestErrorCounterMonitor actually monitoring ?

# log extract

Hi,

Please check the below link for the error message

Re: diagnostic error message Catalyst 6513 SWITCH

Thanks for making out time to reply.

I am more concerned about the errors this diagnostic tests are meant to keep track of i.e. what is it actually monitoring, because the TestErrorCountermonitor message or counter just implies that a threshold has been reached or exceeded.

My concern stems from the fact that these diagnostics are used for proactive event management, and the aim is defeated if i can't get to the bottom of the exact erros it tracks and the impact these errors have or will eventually have if they cannot be traced on time.

cheers

Re: diagnostic error message Catalyst 6513 SWITCH

hello All,

Do I assume that no one has ever come across this diagnostic error message before?

New Member

I came to the same situation

I came to the same situation today with 6500-NEB A switch. If you have resolved it, please let me know. thank you.

diagnostic error message Catalyst 6513 SWITCH

I have tried to open the posted link but it is an invalid URL. Could you please re-check this link?

The thing is that an end customer of mine is having this same issue on one of his core switches, they want to know if there is anything tougher that can arise from these logs.

Also I found out in a Cisco document that this might be an issue of the card not being inserted properly. The link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_tech_note09186a00801751d7.shtml#counter_exceeds

I hope someone can clarify what this issue is about since these are the errors we are receiving in the customer's switch:

Sep 18 16:16:53: %CONST_DIAG-SP-4-ERROR_COUNTER_WARNING: Module 1 Error counter exceeds threshold, system operation continue.

diagnostic error message Catalyst 6513 SWITCH

Should I open a different thread with my own issue? I just posted this in here since I think these ones are very closely related, sorry if this wasn't meant to happen.
