Series of Alerts including FFDC

Hello All,

I've seen few errors as below in series. Are these something I need to consider as Priority???

May I know what exactly is FFDC mean? and How this can be used????

Trace dump (Slot 5) was not transferred because trace auto-FTP disabled.
Trace dump available (Slot 5)! (reason: FFDC)
Security violation: Login failure attempt via HTTP. IP Addr:
First failure data capture (FFDC) event occurred.
A log message was dropped

Thanks Everyone..

Re: Series of Alerts including FFDC

a part of the answer is in the question: FFDC is "First Failure Data Capture"

and yes, you should treat this as priority, collect supportsave and open the case with your support provider

good luck!

In addition to Alexey post, Usually these messages appear as a consequence of some previous failure, normally a switch daemon that fails. Depending of the deaemon, it could be more or less critical and most of the times a FOS ugprade fixes it.
