Ignore counter

Dear Netpro community,

I am puzzled by the high number of ignore counter showing on vlan 1.

Base on the output of debug ip error, here is the captured output:

9w1d: datagramsize=342, IP 51203: s=137.55.136.151 (Vlan1), d=255.255.255.255, t

my questions would be:

1) Is the ignore counter caused by the above conditions?

2) if yes, what would be the cause? Is it due to the buffers?

3) How do i interpret the messages?

Any pointer is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Ignore counter

Hello Benson,

at a first glance I don't think the two outputs are related.

About the debug ip error output:

d=255.255.255.255 is the broadcast address these are UDP destined to a port not open on the device

d=224.0.0.2 is the all routers in the subnet

the only line to take care is the following

9w1d: datagramsize=92, IP 36118: s=192.168.1.201 (Vlan1), d=192.168.1.255, totle

n 78, fragment 0, fo 0, dispose ip.notgateway

I suppose your vlan1 is in net =137.55.136.0/23 for the the line:

9w1d: datagramsize=272, IP 17624: s=137.55.136.245 (Vlan1), d=137.55.137.255, to

tlen 258, fragment 0, fo 0, dispose udp.noport

Hope to help

Re: Ignore counter

Dear Giuseppe,

Thanks for the information.

9w1d: datagramsize=92, IP 36118: s=192.168.1.201 (Vlan1), d=192.168.1.255, totle

n 78, fragment 0, fo 0, dispose ip.notgateway

For this line, it could be due to a static IP input on the end stations.

However, I am particularly intrigue by the message:

9w1d: datagramsize=272, IP 17624: s=137.55.136.245 (Vlan1), d=137.55.137.255, to

tlen 258, fragment 0, fo 0, dispose udp.noport

what is the meaning of dispose udp.noport? Is this causing the increment in ignore counter?

Re: Ignore counter

I think it means that 137.55.137.255 is a directed broadcast to a subnet your router is part of, so your router should process the packet itself. However, the packet was addressed to a UDP port that the router does not have any application running. So it discards it. It's a pity the debug doesn't tell you the port number, but maybe debug ip udp would.

Re: Ignore counter

Kevin,

Thanks for the reply. Can I assume that the ignore counter is partly caused by when there is a udp.noport? I need to know more, because, I have vlan1 on other switches, however, I do not see a high number of ignore statistics, only this one has.
