WS-X6582-2PA question

1st i would apriciate any thoughts on this.

We have a couple of 2 port adapter Enhanced FlexWANs (WS-X6582-2PA) and i have a few questions on these.

1) Does anyone know if you can assign more I/O memory on each flexwan PA, i looked for a command, while attached to the PA slot and couldn’t find it. Out of 256 Megs of ram it assigns about 68 megs to I/O and on a few PA we only have 30+ megs free not sure if this will become a concern.

FlexWAN-ENH-13/0#sh mem free

                Head    Total(b)     Used(b)     Free(b)   Lowest(b)  Largest(b)

Processor   41291EC0   181854528   113225864    68628664    66629472    55454808

      I/O    C000000    67108352    64034248     3074104     3058576     3066008

2) Does fabric syncing only happen on slot 0 of the flexwan? on slot 1 i never see this on the logs.

SLOT 5/0: 00:00:19: %SSA-5-FABRICSYNC_DONE: Fabric sync on Primary channel done.

SLOT 5/0: 00:00:19: %SCP-5-ENABLE: Module enabled

SLOT 5/0: 00:00:25: %SCP-5-ONLINE: Module online

3) On one of the flexwan when i reboot it i see the follow warning message about upgrading soon, but i have no idea what this means, any insight on this would be great. I'm also seeing ECC errors, does this mean the ram is going bad? i recently had all T1s on this card go down at the same time and the only thing that brought them up was a reboot of the flexwan.

WS-X6582-2PA question

Hi Paul,

1) no you cannot

2) It is normal. Altough the flexwan2 has 2 Port Adapters it has just one connection to the fabric (at 8Gbps only by the way), so only one synch is technically possible. Developers decided to go for x/0 notation where the 0 does not represent the PA but the module itself.

3) I see the message popping up 2 times (at least). It does not seem good as this indicates a parity error. If you see it often we might consider it a Hard parity error indicating memory problem.  So yes there is a memory or memory controller issue.

This warning message does not mean anything. It does not indicate any error condition and can be safely ignored.


It is a debug message that was not meant to show, but somehow does.


Internal bug "CSCec67502 - CWPA2: Remove debug msgs during bootup" documents that (but you cannot see that).


No actual upgrade is required.

Ricardo, thanks very much for your reply.

Do you or anyone else reading this know what the warning message is all about?

"

00:00:17: !!! WARNING: Hardware components are down level !!!

00:00:17: !!! Upgrade soon                                !!!

00:00:17: !!! I mean it!                                  !!!"

I have several enhanced flexwans and only see this on one.

Also does the 30 meg free for I/O memory seem low for a PA that has all 28 channels in use? If this was too low and causing issue would I be able to see it on the flexwan logs?

Could be a "send" message by someone warning everyone to get off.
