can anyone help please?

Re: low on mem? i think?

Hi Jason

Can you check out show process cpu command and find out which process hogs your CPU.

Also another alternate would be going on for a upgrade to a later version of ios on your router.

You can think of doing the same once you have enough DRAM and FLASH on your router to do so..

Re: low on mem? i think?

It sounds like an IOS bug relating to NAT memory usage. I'm sure I"ve heard of one recently.

Which version of IOS are you running? Can you upgrade to the latest?

Re: low on mem? i think?

ok here is the deal. I had a buddy reconfig it (mainly because i dont know how) but still same issue. Also I believe its 12.3, here is what it is saying:

Re: low on mem? i think?

Can you post the results of sh version on the router?

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

i dont know what version i had before lastnight but I updated it to 12.3(8)T. I am going to check it this morning and see how its working!

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

ok same thing... i am thinking its a bad stick of mem.. or bad memory...damnit to hell!

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

Can't you run a 12.4T image?

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

because I don't believe sisco will provide me the update because 1721 is no longer supported... can you email it to me.

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

Is the 12.3 IOS version you're running the latest release in the 12.3 train that you can run?

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

to be honest i couldnt tell you because i am a newb.. can you point me in the right direction?

New Member

Re: low on mem? i think?

Assuming you have a CCO login:

* Log into the cisco.com website

* On the right hand side should be a dropdown box labelled "Download software". Select IOS Software

* Click on IOS 12.4 software

* Click on Download Software

* This should launch the IOS upgrade planner which lets you browse software based on version, platform, release and features.

Take a look at that.

I dont have CCO login.. i dont know how to get it.. I tried but wont let me..i think

Re: low on mem? i think?

I believe this may be the answer. I have

seen the identical issue on two separate

12.3 routers of the 1751V type.

Same errors exactly.

Different local PCs running at the time, so I don't think it's related to anything internal. Different memory in the actual router, and I even increased the actual physical memory size to no avail.

BTW, I put back online an old 821 router,

and it did the same thing.

I believe this mainly started happening when I put P2P applications on a Linux server.
