Long ping in network and outages

Hello,

I have a strange problem in one segment of our network. We have a cisco 6509E router and some switches (3750, 2960 etc) connected into this 6509 (The 6509 is the centre of star and switches are edges).

 

Sometimes (once per day), occurs long pings at computers, there is no matter of VLAN where computers connected. But this is not a issue on all computers connected, only some. ( I mean that PC with IP adres at the end for example .3 works fine, but another with ip for example .54 has long ping and outages). Some of the problem computers are not connected directly to router, but to the switches on the edge. On this switches we have configured broadcast and multicast storm control.But without effect.

We tried to shutdown all access ports on 6509 (there are 3 pieces of 48 port metalic cards presented) and found the port which caused this behavior. We disconnected the PC connected to this port. After 2 days another port started to this situation again. Unfortunately, we can not configure broadcast storm control at main 6509, because access cards not supports this.

But i think this is not the broadcast problem, because there are not afected all computers. The ports when we have multicast storm control also are not blocked for it.

Have anybody some idea, what causes this?

Thanks Pavel.

Can you post the version of the device and configuration to look.

Hello,

 

I attached running configuration, show version and show logging. Router uptime is now around 14hours.

 

This IOS is too old and you need to atlease put to latest version stable code. Cat 6K end of Life.

 

can you post below output 

#show moduiles

# show process cpu sort |  ex 0.00

# show process cpu history

 

if you get maintenance window, i suggest to upgrade and check.

Hello, the informations you asked for are in attached files.

BR,

is this single or VSS, is see the uptime 14 hours you regularly reboot  whole kit ?

 

if you get maintenance window upgrade to new Stable IOS.

Hello,

this is a single router (no VSS). I confirm that we rebooted whole router 14 hours ago.

 

Unfortunately, we have not service contract, so we have not access to new firmwares.

Hi Pavel,

 

Out of curiosity, I wanna see how long the 6509 was UP, and its version info as requested by Balaji.

HTH,

Hello,

 

check if your device supports the command below (in global config mode):

 

buffers tune automatic

 

Otherwise, change the values as below, and monitor:

 

buffers small max-free 4096
buffers small min-free 256
buffers small permanent 2048
!
buffers middle max-free 2048
buffers middle min-free 128
buffers middle permanent 1024
!

buffers verybig min-free 10
buffers verybig permanent 20
!
buffers huge max-free 8
buffers huge min-free 2

Hi,

 

I set the buffers manualy as below:

 

buffers small max-free 4096
buffers small min-free 256
buffers small permanent 2048
!
buffers middle max-free 2048
buffers middle min-free 128

Now i will monitoring if, the problem persist.
