Used to switch packets that can not be forwarded normally. in effect, these packets are dropped without being forwarded. Packets can be dropped because of an encapsulation failure, an resolved address, an unsupported protocol,no valid route present,no valid adjacency or checksum error. you can gauge drop adjacency activity with the following command:
show cef drop"
The output shows slot, encap-fail,unresolved,unsupported, no route,
Under slot, i find " RP'
I thought we are dealing with packets that cef drops for above mentioned reasons. But " RP" makes me feel these are the packets dropped by "RP" not by cef(layer 3 forwarding engine).
There is another question
My understanding is if there is no valid adjacency, packet is punted to "RP" not drop. But as I quoted above under drop adjacency, one of the reasons for drop adjacency is no-adj,My question is what would happen if there is no valid adjacency , will the packet be dropped because it satisfies drop adjacency condition i.e no-adj or the packet will be punted to"RP" because it satisfies punt adjacency condition 1.e no-adj?
