Re: HSRP

Hi Jack,

Are you sure that the vlan interface were never down on active router? Can you check the logs and confirm? If 3 hello packet are missed continuously from active to standby it will failover.

This can be due to network congestion that 3 packets got dropped or may be your something happen to the hardware that 3 packets got dropped. Can you recheck the logs and confirm? Which platform is this?

Re: HSRP

Hi bro,

but, i wonder how come few vlans can fail over at the same time ?

i have implemented hello and hold time as well.

Re: HSRP

Hi Ney,

I will like to know which platform is this? One of the reason all vlans can flap is if lets say there is only a trunk link between this switch and some layer 2 switch downlink and no other machines are connected to these vlans on layer 3 switch and if trunk port flaps all layer 3 virtual interfaces may flap.

I will not recommend to increase the HSRP timers untill and unless required and will like to know what is the root cause of this issue. So did you get a chance to look at the logs?

Re: HSRP

Hi Ankur,

nothing much on the logs. but this information was captured from Core-switch <6509>.

besides, any idea why few vlans could failed over at the same time ?

Re: HSRP

Hi Jack,

Did you see interface vlans went down and come up in your logs? No errors related to line cards? I belive if there is a congestion or communication failure for short while between your msfc and sups this may cause an issue but because you do not see anything specific in logs I doubts that is an issue.

Not sure though why HSRP moves to standby router but if you see vlan interface flapped that was a potential cause of HSRP moves to standby router but why vlan interface flapped can be only determined if we see something wrong in logs which as you mentioned does not have anything.

Re: HSRP

Hi Ankur,

would it be STP problem ? because, i noticed some of the vlan root bridge is not in the core-switch.

your reply will be highly appreciated.

Re: HSRP

Hi Jack,

Could be, it lot depends upon your topology. STP and HSRP can be closly related depending upon topology and design.
