Cisco 3850 memory issue.

Good day guys,

 

I am seeing a lot of error messages in my distribution switch and think this might be related to the bug found in the discussions

 

Cisco Bug: CSCvd45973 - Catalyst 3850/3650 - memory leak in platform_mgr process

 

But I am not sure because it should not be as my IOS version is different.

Can someone please help me with this?

99% memory used.  I would give this switch another day or two before it will crash.

This is probably CSCvn46171 or CSCvi03924.

Not my call.  My recommendation is to upgrade the firmware of the switch to the latest/last version of 16.6.10.

Hi Balaji,

 

Thanks for your update.

 

I was thinking of updating the IOS but not sure what version I will test this on the backup switch and see what I can see.

 

This is my process memory output:

WARNING:  Do NOT upgrade to 16.12.X.

Post the complete output to the following commands:

  1. sh platform software status control-processor brief
  2. sh processes memory platform sorted location switch 1 rp0 (Page 1 only)

The switch/stack is running on 16.6.1.  Be prepared to upgrade to a later (and newer) release of 16.6.X train, like 16.6.10.

Hi Leo,

 

Thank you very much I see this now! I will update the switch firmware and revert back with an update!
