MLC CAM Memory alert



we have an Network with four MLX Roters.


We aktivated the Optical Funtions for TX RX and Bios current global.


Two days after that our CAM Memeory sends an alert that the Memory will run over the edge.


So we rebootet the the switch and disabled optical monitoring.


From my point of view there is no correlation betrween the Optical Monitoring and the CAM memory problem.


Is someone out there with an similar problem ?






p.s. V5.3.0eT163

Quite familiar. Which cam partition are you using? Are these routers part of a collapsed core / transit architecture?


Did you get a chance to grab data such as:
