The PAGP logging facility reports events that involve the Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP). PAgP is a protocol used to negotiate EtherChannel links between switches. The switch generates the %PAGP-5-PORTTOSTP or %ETHC-5-PORTTOSTP syslog message whenever a link is detected on a switch port. The switch generates the %PAGP-5-PORTFROMSTP or %ETHC-5-PORTTOSTP syslog message whenever a link is lost on a switch port. These syslogs are normal informational messages that indicate that a port was removed from or added to the spanning tree. Note that channeling does not have to be enabled in order for these messages to be generated. A high number of these messages is an indication that a port loses a link due to a misconfiguration or a connection issue.
In some scenarios, the link flaps when EtherChannel is formed between a Cisco Catalyst switch and a third party switch. Here, the Link-aggregation protocol (LACP) is the only protocol that is supported by both devices.
Note: Do not disable spanning tree when you have have redundant links since this can cause severe network degradation.
These messages are normal and of no concern as devices are connected or disconnected from the switch. But, if these messages are seen frequently for a particular port, the link is flapping, which means it loses and regains the link constantly. Only after you determine and fix the root cause can these syslog messages be suppressed by the modification of the logging level for the PAGP facility to four or lower if you issue the set logging levelpagp 4 default command. The default logging level for PAgP is five.
These are the most common root causes if these messages occur repeatedly on certain ports:
I'm trying to update the hashing algorithm for both the enable secret and the secret for the username login. Every time I enter my enable secret with either the type 8 or 9 it just doesn't work, I will enter a simple secret like cisco and it won't let me ...
The device requesting the access is going through the proxy. ISE shows the proxy in region A which is our datacenter. That is fine, however it's trying to authorize the device against region A instead of the actual location policy the network device is co...
We are using EIGRP between a central site and several remote locations. Everything has been going fine for years, but recently we had a strange problem. One particular remote site had trouble getting out to the internet. During troubleshooting, I noticed ...
I'd like to use a SPAN port in a similar way to a fiber tap.When doing something like:monitor session 1 source interface Gi1/1/1
monitor session 1 destination interface Gi1/1/2If Te1/1/2 is an SFP, e.g. GLC-LH can I connect only the TX optic on Gi1/1/2 to...
