After I installed DFM 3.0.2 as part of the LMS Dec 2007 update I have been getting InsufficientMemoryAlarms on my Cat6500's. The alarm is for an instance of memory called "posixMemory". DFM shows 2 instances of "posixMemory" for these switches as well as 2 instances of processor memory and I/O memory. So I have 2 events for each switch (one for each instance of "posixMemory". Is this a bug in DFM? posixMemory sounds like a software data structure so why is DFM managing this? This seems to be something new with DFM 3.0.2.
Re: DFM 3.0.2 InsufficientMemory alarm on posixMemory
As you can see from the walk, this is where the posixMemory pools are coming from. The first posixMemory pool shows about 13.1% free, and the second shows about 14.8% free, so those would most likely generate an event in DFM (depending on your threshold). Each pool is tied to a different physical entity. A walk of the entPhysicalTable will tell you what indexes 2001 and 2013 are.
The posixMemory pools reflect the available heap memory for the new POSIX-style (i.e. UNIX-like) processes under modular IOS.
