What does this mean in the syslog?

If this is pointing at the physical port 3, there is nothing plugged into it. I am not sure what it means otherwise.

Just trying to sort out if this is an issue I should be addressing, or something I need not log?


I see this on my Master controller, running 6.5.3.4, it is a 7220.
I use LACP on ports 0/0/0 and 0/0/1 and no cables connected to any other ports on device.

Switchport trunk with the only vlan being allowed is the mgmt vlan defined on the conroller. All vlans trusted, port trusted. 

Re: What does this mean in the syslog?

it's referring to the ports on some Marvell chipset (98X1422, 4 port XAUI to RXAUI converter) that is in the path between the main guts of the controller and the front SFP+ ports

 

The exact mapping of the chipset port to external port is not apparent in the debugs, the ports referred to in the debugs are the so called ports on the chip itself not the physical ports.

 

72xx controllers always puke out a bunch of these messages at startup, IMHO you can very likely ignore the ones that fit the usual pattern seen at startup

 

hth.

What if it's happening frequently, not during boot? aka, I see this same message over and over all day. 

Specifically with yesterday's date (a 24 hour period) I saw that message show up 74,350 times. So we're seeing it almost every second. (0.81/second)

I've seen it almost 55k times today. 

Don't want to silence it if it's a true issue.

well, that's why I qualified it as "normal during startup", during regular run time you should not see it, IMO, unless something else is going on.

 

Take a look in whatever device is attached to your controller and see if it's reporting port flaps, check for uptime of interface(s), port level errors etc., failing that it's definately worth logging a ticket if nothing obvious shows up in the connected device.
