SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL on WS-C2950G-48-EI

Hi,

I have a problem, I can't to connect on my switch (WS-C2950G-48-EI) with Telnet or HTTP.

When to connect with console, i have a error :

SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL : Memory allocation of 10000 bytes failed from 0x801DBEE4, alignment 0

Pool: Processor Free: 968 Cause: Not enough free memory

Alternate Pool: I/0 Free: 69716 Cause: Memory fragmentation

How can I solve this problem ? a reboot ?

Thanks

Most likely an IOS bug.

A reboot can fix this issue.

Agree , sounds like a memory leak and a reboot will fix it .  If the code is old , upgrade while you are at it.

Thats a memory leak and your device needs to be power cycled
