NOTICE

Description

This message occurs when the number of local ports in the given broadcast domain exceeds the threshold for a node and, as a result, the l2_reachability health monitor has omitted checking ports in that broadcast domain. If any local ports in this broadcast domain experience Layer 2 connectivity problems, they are not marked as degraded and no EMS messages related to the Layer 2 connectivity health of those ports is generated. LIFs hosted on those port are not automatically migrated to healthy ports because of Layer 2 connectivity issues.

Corrective Action

This is not a misconfiguration; however, including fewer than the specified threshold ports in the broadcast domain enables the l2_reachability health monitor to check the health of the ports in that broadcast domain.

Syslog Message

Skipping l2_reachability health monitor check for ports belonging to broadcast domain %s on node %s as the number of local ports (%u) belonging to this broadcast domain exceeds the threshold (%u) for which l2_reachability health monitor check can efficiently run.

Parameters

bcDomainName (STRING): Name of the broadcast domain for which the l2_reachability health monitor check is being skipped.
nodeName (STRING): Name of the node for which the number of local ports in the given broadcast domain exceeds the threshhold.
numLocalPorts (INT): Number of local ports in the specified broadcast domain.
maxLocalPorts (INT): Threshold value for the maximum number of local ports in a broadcast domain for which the l2_reachability health monitor check can run.
