What does the message "%CHKPT-SP-4-GET_HUGE_BUF: Client 33 buffer requested" mean?

Hello,

does anybody know what's the meaning of the syslog message "%CHKPT-SP-4-GET_HUGE_BUF: Client 33 buffer requested" I saw on a Cat6500 after configuring a monitor port?

Neither in error message decoder nor in the cisco search I found any hint.

Best Regards,

Thorsten Steffen

Re: What does the message "%CHKPT-SP-4-GET_HUGE_BUF: Client 33 b

Hello Thorsten,

unfortunately the error message decoder does not provide information for all possible error messages.

the product error messages guide is here

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2sx/system/messages/122sxsms.html

actually it is IOS version dependent

I don't see the message here too.

CHKPT Messages

This section contains checkpointing (CHKPT) messages.

The message comes from supervisor (SP). it has severity level 4.

GET_HUGE_Buffer means that the system has tried to allocate a system buffer of category/size huge.

You can check system buffers with show buffer

Client 33 buffer requested, here 33 might be a process-id that requested the huge buffer.

It can be just a notification of this event.

>> after configuring a monitor port

Not  easy to say if there is a relationship

Hope to help

Giuseppe
