Catalyst 6509 switch module / backplan error shutdown

I am interested in what commands are available on the 6509 switch to track and shutdown modules, the backplane or the the switch in the event of any hardware failure. Some sort of tracking.

Also what is the default behaviour in the event of hardware failure on any part?

What is the default recovery process?

regards

Re: Catalyst 6509 switch module / backplan error shutdown

The supervisor sends keepalives to all modules through an out of band interface. If the module stops responding to these pings, the supervisor resets the module. A log message is generated when this happens and you can setup the switch to send an SNMP trap when this happens.

If the module reloads and continues to not respond to the supervisor keepalives, the module remains in the unoperational state of 'other'.
