CatOS versions 6.3.8, 7.3.2, and 7.5.1 introduced this message. The message displays for a nonfatal error condition. The message indicates that both these occurrences have taken place:
The switch has detected an Ethernet out-of-band channel (EOBC) transmit (Tx) queue-stuck condition on the system controller application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC).
The ASIC has been reinitialized without a reset of the switch.
Note: The presence of a card with a faulty EOBC buffer can also cause the message.
This message is informational only and requires no action. The data traffic continues to flow through the switch. Later software releases include a change in the severity level of the message so that the severity coincides with the severity of the error.
