CW2K Syslog Getting full:%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL

CW2K Syslog Getting full:%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL

CW2K Syslog Getting full:%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL

Hey Techies,

I am looking into the following syslog error msg:

%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL:UDP socket overflow from Source IP: SNMP SERVER, Destination port: 161

I already have a filter defined in RME, to exclude this message.

This message is coming out of 1 particular switch & is filling up my log. How can I turn it off?

Any pointers, directions, would be greatly appreciated.

RE: CW2K Syslog Getting full:%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL

Heres the output from the Cisco Output Interpreter

%IP-6-UDP_SOCKOVFL (x1): UDP socket overflow from Source IP:[chars], Destination

Explanation: This message indicates that all buffers for a UDP socket on the
Network Management  Processor (NMP) have filled up due to excessive UDP traffic
on the administrative VLAN and  cannot store additional traffic. [chars] is the
source IP address and [dec] is the destination port  number.

Recommended Action: Remove or block the source of the UDP packets to prevent
further UDP packet  loss. Note    Kernel messages do not indicate a problem with system
performance but should be reported to your technical support representative.

Hope this helps

   this message means your net management tool is sending snmp packets faster than the switch can handle them .  You either have to throttle the tool or on some cisco catos boxes their is an snmp buffer you can increase on later code versions , think they have to be at 7.x. trian.
