Hi all, I posted this problem before, but didn't get any replies. Here it is again with some additional info; hopefully one of you can help. :) I've searched CCO without any luck either.
I'm seeing this error message on our Catalyst 8510CSR switch-router:
00:15:01: %AAL5-3-NOBUFFER: No reassembly buffers to receive pkt , vpi 0, vci 36
Show proc cpu shows cpu usage around 75-85% continually. There isn't nearly enough of traffic on the network to generate this, and I confirmed by checking the loads on all the interfaces (ALL are at 1/255 except Controller0). So I assume its something isolated to this router.

I'm thinking this is an ATM problem of some kind, but we don't run any ATM nor have any ATM interfaces in the 8510. While looking through the interfaces, i saw this:
Controller0 is up, line protocol is up

I imagine the reliabiltiy indicated in this output can't be good! Also, why is there any load at all when we aren't running ATM? Anyway, is this the source of the problem or not? If not, what could it be? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Isn't it amazing how often after posting a problem in a public forum, you figure out the problem on your own? D'oh!
Anyway, the source of all the troubles was an apparently bad Extreme Summit switch. No matter how the speed and duplex was configured on both ends, thousands of collisions and errors were occuring on the link; cable's good too, tested that. As soon as I shut down the connection, cpu usage dropped to normal levels and all was happy and merry. However, I am still curious why I was receiving the "%AAL5-3-NOBUFFER: No reassembly buffers to receive pkt , vpi 0, vci 36" error-- as that is definitely an ATM error. I would think the error have been something along the lines of no buffer as this is, but without mention of the ATM stuff... would anyone with more experience care to comment?
The internal architecture of 8500 switches is through ATM backplane. Your packets are converted to ATM cells and forwarded on the backplane and then cells are coverted back to packets. So eventhough you don't have physical ATM interfaces, you would see ATM related messages.
