Core Issue

This issue is due to a Cisco IOS  Software bug. This is usually a cosmetic issue. However, a great number of these errors can result in high CPU utilization.


To resolve this issue, perform these options:

  • To stop the error messages, upgrade the Cisco IOS Software.
  • To find the bug causing the problem, paste the contents from the output of the show alignment command into the Output Interpreter.
