ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory - Switch EX4300

‎12-18-2018 02:17 AM

Hi all,

I'm facing with the problem on switch EX4300. I can't ping to host 10.59.54.143, the switch display the ouput as below:

 

admin@R2-SW4300-NOC> ping 10.59.54.143

PING 10.59.54.143 (10.59.54.143): 56 data bytes

ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory

ping: sendto: Cannot allocate memory

 

Whereas, from the switch, I ping to other hosts normally.

admin@R2-SW4300-NOC> ping 10.59.54.141   

PING 10.59.54.141 (10.59.54.141): 56 data bytes

64 bytes from 10.59.54.141: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=1.052 ms

64 bytes from 10.59.54.141: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=9.138 ms

 

Please help me to troubleshoot the problem.

 

Thanks all.

Hi,

 

What is your SW?

Problem with ping is the only issue on your switch? Are there any other error/log related to memory?

 

Thanks,

Alex

Hi, 

Thanks for your help. My switch is EX4300 with junos version 13.2X50-D15.3.

I see many logs as below:

Please help me.

Hi Hoang ,

 

Seems like memory is getting exhausted.

Would you be able to perform a switch reboot? This should resolve the issue for now.

 

JUNOS 13.2 is old software. You may consider upgrade the switch to one of the latest software as well.
