Howto disable barrel processor or change distribution method?

Hello,

 

i am having a problem with a ADX 1216-4 where one of the BPs keeps crashing under load. The config hasnt been changed and it worked like this for quite some time. Its always the same BP thats crashing so i wonder if its a hardware issue. Does anyone know if its possible to disable one of the BP cores and/or change the distribution of sessions to specific BP's? I can see that this is possible for ADX 4k via "server select-bp-mask" however that function is nowhere documentated as to what hex mask needs to be used.

I found this while going through an old case of ours.

 

 

To Send traffic to Mask Value in Binary Mask Value in HEX Command to use
BP 1 1 0001 1 server select-bp-mask 1
BP 1 2 0010 2 server select-bp-mask 2
BP 1 3 0100 4 server select-bp-mask 4
BP 1 4 1000 8 server select-bp-mask 8
BP 1 1 and BP 1 2 0011 3 server select-bp-mask 3
BP 1 1 and BP 1 3 0101 5 server select-bp-mask 5
BP 1 1 and BP 1 4 1001 9 server select-bp-mask 9
BP 1 2 and BP 1 3 0110 6 server select-bp-mask 6
BP 1 2 and BP 1 4 1010 a server select-bp-mask a
BP 1 3 and BP 1 4 1100 c server select-bp-mask c
BP 1 1, BP 1 2, BP 1 3 0111 7 server select-bp-mask 7
BP 1 1, BP 1 2, BP 1 4 1011 B server select-bp-mask b
BP 1 1, BP 1 3, BP 1 4 1101 D server select-bp-mask d
BP 1 2, BP 1 3, BP 1 4 1110 E server select-bp-mask e
All 4 BPs (Default setting) 1111 F server select-bp-mask f

 

I would add that there was a defect related to some of the combinations.  I'd run the latest 12.4.01 or 12.5.02 patch to make sure you don't accidentally hit a combination that has issues.
