RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

Dear Community,

What does RP drops entail?

We are experiencing 0.23 % drops on an vlan int on one of our 6500. This interface is an L3 to a server-subnet.

29563976÷12851487771×100 = 0.230043218

Doing a sh int vlan 238 switching shows 30935411 RP (Route Processing) drops.

It was a bit unclear to me in the thread "Input queue drops on 6500 vlan interface" if RP drops was through the router, or to the router(mgmnt)?

I can do a netdr to see what traffic goes to it. It should not generate CPU load, but I thnk I will wait untill afterhours before I try that commnad.

- do NETDR:

-- debug netdr cap rx vlan 238

-- show netdr cap

Any repies are met with gratitude.

Cheers,

Tor Stefan

Re: RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

Hi Tor Stefan,

it seems indeed host with IP 161.4.238.134 and MAC 00.26.55.7F.66.C0 with is sending lots of ARP requests for all (or lots of) hosts in vlan 238. In the Target Protocl Address we can see lots of hosts (A104EEDE  A104EEE5 etc).

Not sure if this is a malfunctioning, for sure it is the root cause.

You need to check what that server is doing... as a start check its arp table and see why it keeps sending those requests.

Meanwhile you could enlarge the input queue from the default 75 packets to something bigger (2000 for instance) or also you could configure the arp policer  (sup720 feature) if things get worse.

RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

Hi,

It was a bit unclear to me in the thread "Input queue drops on 6500 vlan interface" if RP drops was through the router, or to the router(mgmnt)?

The counter indicates what is being dropped at RP level and does not diffirentiate from traffic going TO or THROUGH the router. In ideal conditions no transit traffic is supposed to go to the RP in order to be forwarded as it should be handled at hardware level by the PFC or DFC if present. So in this condition all the input drops happen for traffic destined TO the RP iteself (management traffic, protocols etc.). However in your outputs we can already see that IP process is forwarding some traffic. This should not happen as MLS CEF forwarding should occur instead (hardware level as I wrote above).

It would seem that traffic entering in vlan 238 (part of it at least) is sent to the RP to be forwarded by IP Process (not even in software CEF). NETDR will tell you exactly what is being 'punted' (this is the name of this operation).

Go for it, it is extremely safe as it will not add any load to the CPU as it is just a circular buffer.

Also, go and check the CPU utilization as you will likely see some interrupts utilization.

sh proc cpu sorted | e 0.00

It would also be interesting checking the following:

sh tcam int vlan 238 acl in ip det

and

sh mls cef exception status

Post these outputs (including netdr) for us to check.

Re: RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

It seems to me that 00.26.55.7F.66.C0, which is a server I have now located, is generating loads of ARP (protocol 0806)

broadcasts.

Its a server which runs HP Insight Manager..

Could it be a mailfunc. nic?

But, here follows the different commands.

Re: RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

Hi Tor Stefan,

it seems indeed host with IP 161.4.238.134 and MAC 00.26.55.7F.66.C0 with is sending lots of ARP requests for all (or lots of) hosts in vlan 238. In the Target Protocl Address we can see lots of hosts (A104EEDE  A104EEE5 etc).

Not sure if this is a malfunctioning, for sure it is the root cause.

You need to check what that server is doing... as a start check its arp table and see why it keeps sending those requests.

Meanwhile you could enlarge the input queue from the default 75 packets to something bigger (2000 for instance) or also you could configure the arp policer  (sup720 feature) if things get worse.

RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

Thank you for your answer. I also liked the little brainteaser. I had to find out where you got the host IP from. I don't work that much (yet) with hex, but I do have an advanced calculator in my Linux

RP drops / Input drops on 6500 Sup 720 10GE

indeed you can get lots of interesting info by exploring the captured data comparing it with an ARP frame

http://ipv6.com/articles/general/Address-Resolution-Protocol.htm

you see the protocol (IP), the type of ARP (request), the sender, the target etc,
