Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

We have updated our SRX650-cluster last week and so far it runs very smooth and stable. Also syslog-messages are down near to zero. I have only notice of kernel sync and nearly at the same time the following Error:

 

In dfwd_ev_client_timer_connect - Function 'dfwd_ev_client_start_retry_timer(session)' returned error 1.

 

Is this something to worry about?

 

Don't you wish there was a knob on the TV to turn up the intelligence? There's one marked 'Brightness,' but it doesn't work.

Re: Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

 

These messages do not have any sevice imapct.  This fix  will be avilable in 10.4R4/10.4R5.
When ppmd fails to connect to dfwd, these messages are seen.dfwd does not run in srx platforms.

The fix didnt make into 10.4R4, how ever it is fixed in 10.4R5, 11.2R1,11.1R2 and 11.3R1

Re: Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

Hi,

 

I'm running 10.4r4.5 and see the message still. Are we sure this has been fixed in this release.  SRX201H.

Re: Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

you forgot to mention "high volume" when describing this error.   These are from an EX4200.

 

Jun 15 18:14:35  test-fw ppmd[1046]: In dfwd_ev_client_timer_connect - Function 'dfwd_ev_client_start_retry_timer(session)' returned error 1.
Jun 15 18:14:41  test-fw ppmd[1046]: In dfwd_ev_client_timer_connect - Function 'dfwd_ev_client_start_retry_timer(session)' returned error 1.
Jun 15 18:16:41  test-fw last message repeated 20 times
Jun 15 18:26:42  test-fw last message repeated 100 times
Jun 15 18:36:42  test-fw last message repeated 100 times


 

can individual processes (ppmd) or log entries be disabled?   If not, what class/severity must I stop logging to be rid of these?

Re: Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

Hi

 

Can be disabled with

 

file messages {
    any any;
    authorization info;
    match "!dfwd_ev_client_timer_connect";
}

Haha. Good joke there. Juniper still recommends 10.4 and 11.2 as well as 11.3 haven't even been released. Slowly but surely I am loosing ALL my faith in the SRX. They are a true shame for Juniper.

Thanks.  It didn't occur to me to use the negate operator.....

Re: Strange Syslog-Message since 10.4R3

Unfortunately, it's not an SRX problem, but a JUNOS problem as it also happens on EX4200 hardware.
