Do action by EEM+TCL after the log happen X Times in Y LC/RSP at ASR9k

Problem:

We can do more automated action by EEM + TCL on Cisco router, and have more trigger way for syslog pattern trigger, OID trigger, CPU Threshold trigger and so on. That will match IOS platform, no any issue. But in XR platform, each LC/RSP have separate alarm, we maybe have special requirement, e.g:

Some alarms frequency happen, I want to restart the process (base on pid) if the alarm happen 3 times in 5min on each LC, how to do that?  

0/3/cpu0: alarm report "C", Pid = zzz
0/1/cpu0: alarm report "A", Pid = xxx
0/2/cpu0: alarm report "B", pid = yyy
0/3/cpu0: alarm report "C", pid = zzz
0/1/cpu0: alarm report "A", pid = xxx
0/1/cpu0: alarm report "A", pid = xxx

Solution:

We can do interactive script by TCL I/O, create a file in Harddisk/disk which has the history/count of syslog for Lcs. We can read this file using the script whenever the syslog is observed. Based on the number of syslogs the script can take the required action.

The steps will be like this, please check attachment and script flow chart for detail script, in my example, I only dump arp process for testing, please change script base on your requirement, in order to test script, you can add flag to test that, e.g “action_syslog priority info msg “a””:
  • Create a file in harddisk/disk which contains the count of syslog and the LC where the syslog is seen
  • Run the EEM script whenever the event happens
  • Check the file in harddisk/disk for the number of times the issue is seen
  • Take the required action incase the count exceeds x times in Y LC/RSP

Script flow chart:

eem, tcl, multi condition trigger

Script test:

And you will found have action log, you can change any action!
