%SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL

Porfavor ayudenme con este tema

Tengo un Router Cisco 2811, este lo utilizo como gateway de voz y tiene la siguiente IOS

c2800nm-spservicesk9-mz.124-3f.bin

Los sintomas son los siguientes:

Rechaza las sesiones telnet

No acepta llamadas entrantes y salientes

Cuando se establece una llamada no se escucha ni mo Rx ni TX.

este es el log que arroja:

Log Buffer (51200 bytes):

Aug 27 19:38:53.649: %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 780 bytes failed from 0x40327608, alignment 32 Pool: I/O  Free: 7504  Cause: Memory fragmentation Alternate Pool: None  Free: 0  Cause: No Alternate pool

-Process= "Pool Manager", ipl= 0, pid= 6

-Traceback= 0x411B2D30 0x400A76C0 0x400ABBE8 0x40327610 0x400C9668  0x400ABBE8 0x40327610 0x400C9668 0x400C97CC

La verdad que he buscado documentacion en Cisco sobre este problema pero todas me recomienda realizar un upgrade de IOS.

Hi juan,

its hard to understand it.

but i think its a memory leaking issue.


It looks like your router is leaking memory and you need to check process.


continously monitor the output of 'show process memory sorted' output and see what process is leaking the memory.

use Sh process cpu | ex 0.00

this will give u a clean out with only process which are using memory.

thanks

Hi Juan,

I would like to add my comments along with Sandeep and Amrinder, as they said this issue looks like memory leak on the Routner. I have gone thruogh the captures which shared by you and i decoded those tracebacks.

------------------ show memory statistics ------------------


                Head    Total(b)     Used(b)     Free(b)   Lowest(b)  Largest(b)
Processor   44E5A980   175789696    30020440   145769256   145022680   145002188
      I/O   3F600000    10485760     4123464     6362296     6280176     6318940

Symptom:

Free and lowest memory almost close and Limited avilable memory

Cause:

  1. Memory allocated or locked by a process and not freed
  2. Another possible cause is a network/traffic event. This will often manifest itself as excessive utilization in multiple pools
  3. A specific pool is more heavily utilized because of certain traffic that is needed in a network environment.  This traffic may, for some reason, need to be process-switched and there is no way to avoid this at the current time

  • Need to check which pool is taking memory leak either I/O or Processor. For our case it is I/O
  • If I/O, need to check if there is buffer over utilization
  • Some buffer range should be constantly holding many buffers

Log:

Aug 27 19:38:53.649: %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 780 bytes failed from 0x40327608, alignment 32 Pool: I/O  Free: 7504  Cause: Memory fragmentation Alternate Pool: None  Free: 0  Cause: No Alternate pool

Please collect the below capture multiple time with different time intervels,

Note: Reserve memory for console access in any case berfore capture these output,

memory reserve console xxxx

show process memory sorted

show memory statistics

show memory io free

show memory io allocating-process totals

show memory io dead totals

show buffers

show buffers old

show memory debug leaks summary – CPU intensive!!!

show memory summary

Please share the your issue and symptoms in english and it would you much helpful to investigate the issue further.

Regards,

Aru
