Fast Error Detection in ASR9K

Good day, I am wondering to ask one thing.

I am doing some maintenance ASR9K in Asia Region.

Mostly I  troubleshooted a lot of issue after failure occured.

But my client want to know more fastly in critical situation before happened.(Liked rebooted or module stop)

And I found some solution, OBFL.

But I want to ask is there more solution for providing my client?

My client do not want to turn on the debug.

Thank you!

OBFL (on-board failure logging) logs critical information and errors to persistent memory on a line card. This is used for post-mortem analysis, it's not a tool for proactive monitoring.

If you want to proactively monitor the health status of an ASR9k, you can use the methods described in  https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/9881576/asr9000xr-monitoring-cpu-and-memory.

A much more user friendly tool is "Platform Automated Monitoring (PAM)". At present it's supported on 64-bit IOS XR.

64-bit IOS XR is available today as 6.1.2 on CCO. The only supported hardware today are RSP-880 with 8x100G and 12x100G Tomahawk linecards.
