No tunnels configured, but frequent log messages, "%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Tunnel1, changed state to up"

ASR 1002 running 12.2(33)XND3.  We're seeing the %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN log message every 5 to 15 minutes, always "changed state to up" despite there never having been any tunnel interface configured on the box.

 

Additionally, we do get output from the "show interface tunnel1" command:

 

CADBEWEFMP650#sh int tu1

Clearly, I'm missing something here.  Could this perhaps be some sort of tunnel that is dynamically created, without requiring actual configuration?

Hi there,This is normal

Hi there,

This is normal behaviour when you have 'ipv6 multicast-routing' (PIM-SM) in your configuration.

With IPv6, this tunnel is used for the PIM register process.

 

cheers,

Hi,I see the same issue, but

Hi,

I see the same issue, but i have ip multicast-routing (ipv4) configured.

%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Tunnel0, changed state to up

%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Tunnel0, changed state to up
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Tunnel0, changed state to up

Seeing the above message continuously. Is this can be ignored as the PIM register process?

Hi there,These tunnels are

Hi there,

These tunnels are created by the Multicast forwarding Information Base during the PIM sparse-mode registration process, irrespective of IP protocol.

Take a look here:
