callhome.flash.cache.degraded

Severity

ERROR

Description

This message occurs when Flash Management Module (FMM) detects that a percentage of a Flash Cache is offline that is above a warning threshold. FMM monitors all flash devices in the system that attach with it. If your system is configured to do so, it generates and transmits an AutoSupport (or 'call home') message to NetApp technical support and to the configured destinations. Successful delivery of an AutoSupport message significantly improves problem determination and resolution.

Corrective Action

A Flash Cache has degraded. This is an indication or the cause of a performance degradation. Exact impact cannot be estimated. This Flash Cache needs to be repaired or replaced. Contact customer support for more details.

callhome.flash.cache.failed

Severity

ALERT

Description

This message occurs when Flash Management Module (FMM) detects that a Flash Cache has suffered a failure. Typically, this is the result of a hardware failure on the Flash Cache itself. FMM monitors all flash devices in the system that attach with it. If your system is configured to do so, it generates and transmits an AutoSupport (or 'call home') message to NetApp technical support and to the configured destinations. Successful delivery of an AutoSupport message significantly improves problem determination and resolution.

Corrective Action

The Flash Cache can fail due to many reasons. If you see "iomem.dma.internal" in EMS log, reboot the system. If the state of the Flash Cache in system configuration shows 'Failed firmware', update the device (follow the corrective action of the "iomem.card.fail.fpga.rev" EMS message). For all other reasons, replace the Flash Cache. For further assistance, contact technical support.
