Hi all,

I have an issue with a cisco 877 router that has a bug where every time it receives a dns request that needs to do dns forwarding it produces the following syslog message:
%FIB-4-FIBCBLK: Missing cef table for tableid 65535 during CEF samecable event

is there any way to filter just that message from overflowing my syslog server?

I have experimented with logging discriminator but wasn't able to figure out exactly how to do it.

This is what I've tried
#logging discriminator BUG mnemonics drops FIBCBLK

Open in new window


however when I do show logging I see this:

...
No Active Message Discriminator.

Inactive Message Discriminator:
BUG       mnemonics      drops    FIBCBLK
..

Open in new window

Thanks for the replies itguy565!

From the forum link that you sent me it seems that my discriminator line was okay, all I had to do was enable it on the logging syslog!

logging host <IP> discriminator BUG

Open in new window


after that the discriminator shows up as active in the show logging

thank you for the help!
