Detected termination of process

Hello,

I see folowing entries in switch log:

Warning              Detected termination of process 0.weblinker.fcg:16845             Chassis 7359                1             KSWD-1002        Fabric_a_low

current firmware is 6.4.1, 2/32 Brocade switch.

Can anybody help?

Regards - Tadek Terlecki

Re: Detected termination of process

The switch notice an unexpectedly ended process. As far as I remember the Weblinker is one of the webservice processes.

I have seen this after installing SSL certificated which forces the webserver to restart to enable the https.

Hi Andreas,

thank you for response.

I don't know too much about FC switches. Does it restart always when I try to access switch over https? Or if I switch from HTTP to https?

Re: Detected termination of process

One more think - I also see following messages :

Warning   HTTP server and weblinker process will be restarted for logfile truncation             Switch      5984        1              WEBD-1005            fabric_a_low

I have a few such messages per day, maybe there is a problem with logfile truncation? If so - is there any way to truncate it manually?

Re: Detected termination of process

In general it only restarts if you change the config from http to https.

Re: Detected termination of process

I am confused.

you write about FOS 6.4.1 and 2/32 switch.

I assume that 2/32 is a Brocade 3900 2Gbit switch but this type doesn't support 6.4

Is there a typo or did I make a mistake in translating the switch type into Brocade model?

Sorry, my mistake.

Of course it is 4/32 4100 brocade switch.

Re: Detected termination of process

Do you have DCFM or any other SAN STorage management software running which are polling the switches?

Re: Detected termination of process

Yes, we have DCFM monitoring our all two switches, but only this one has warnings in log file.

Re: Detected termination of process

Do you really have 6.4.1 installed on the affected switch?

To check if DCFM is causing these messages disable DCFM and wait one or more days.
