%IPC-SP-5-WATERMARK: xxx messages pending in rcv for the port Primary RFS Server Port(10000.D) seat 10000

Hi,

Can anybody please give me a hand with troubleshooting this error message we have on a Cisco 6509 switch. I am finding conflicting information when doing a goole search. We have recently upgraded to  12.2(33)SXI4 which is supposed to be Safe Harbour (and bug scraped by us with nothing of note picked up) and we now have people getting jumpy over whether this is a service impacting bug or not. Even displaying the show version output is hanging. Conversely this switches HSRP partner is not displaying this error (or an of the other 4 switches we have running this IOS). We have only been seeing this error for 2 days with the number of messages increasing. Memory and processor are not overloaded.

Thanks in advance!

You are hitting a IOS bug CSCsc80303.

Below is the copy paste from Cisco. You can typically do nothing about this. Please upgrade your IOS to any of the mentioned versions.
12.2(32.8.11)SX4
12.2(32.8.30)SRB
12.2(33)SXH
12.2(33)SB
12.2(32.8.99a)SR133
12.2(32.8.1)YCA172.24
12.2(32.8.1)YCA206.1

##############################
%IPC-SP-5-WATERMARK: 7167 messages pending in rcv for the port Card7/0:
Symptoms: IPC Watermark messages may be generated when a trunking interface
goes up or down, and a memory leak may occur.

Conditions: This symptom is observed on a Cisco Catalyst 6000 series switch
and Cisco 7600 series router that are configured with a dot1q trunking
interface that is bundled with more than 2000 VLAN interfaces.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

The last ios was a typo. It's 12.2(32.8.1)YCA206.18.

The category of this bug is noted as "severity 2". That means it might hamper your production environment and an upgrade of IOS is recommended, although the switch might continue to function.

Any IOS release, which is after the mentioned IOS releases above, will have this bug fixed. So it's not mandatory that you have to select *ONLY* those.

This is a cosmetic defect with the messages pending counter.

Best,

12.2(33)SXI4 is not listed in the know affected versions for this bug (I wonder if they are not publishing this IOS as they have declared it SafeHarbour!). We also do not have 2000 vlans.

Surely we are running a newer IOS to those listed?

it's never accurate, the cisco list. This bug was originally before 12.1 release (CSCdw74873). It is not suppose to occur in 12.2. But here it is, in the SX release.  So you have an upgrade in your hand.

Best,
