%SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL (x1): Memory allocation of [dec] bytes failed from [hex], alignment


Pool: [chars] Free: [dec] Cause: [chars]

Alternate Pool: [chars] Free: [dec] Cause: [chars]

Explanation: The requested memory allocation is not available from the specified

memory pool. The current system configuration, network environment, or possibly a

software error may have exhausted or fragmented the router's memory.

Recommended Action: If you suspect a software error, copy the error message exactly

as it appears on the console or in the system log, contact your Cisco technical support

representative, and provide the representative with the gathered information.Otherwise,

you may need to add more memory or reduce the number of features you are trying

to support.
