Hi,

 

I have SRX 650 in cluster and they are generating some Syslog messages. What that meaning.

 

Message from syslogd@deviceA at Mar 14 09:34:41 ...

Message from syslogd@deviceA at Mar 14 09:34:41 ...

In a BSD multi-threaded environment, threads should release resources in a prescribed time otherwise oinker scheduler messages are generated.

 

I suppose these messages could be critical or non critical depending on what is released.  How busy is this unit?

Hi,

 

This unit is too busy and performing full features like IDP, UTM along other features. How could we find which Threads are not released by system or busy with processing.

 

Is there any impact upon the performance.

Using "show system processes extensive" will show you what processes are consuming resources.  This could lead you down the right path.

The device does not look busy, but I would ask JTAC what this TTP Transmit is just to be sure.

 

I wouldnt consider this anything serious as there are no core dumps or anything right?

 

It is normal operation for BSD to terminate threads running too long and that gives us those Oinker messages

 

What Junos version are you running?

They may tell you to upgrade to the recommended release JUNOS 10.4R8.5.

 

Again if you are worried JTAC will confirm that this TTP Transmit is.

You might want to look at free memory as well. Running low can cause processes to start thrashing (so low memory can present as high CPU...)

This is a known issue recently escalated to juniper engineering from customer.  This issue has been analyzed and resolution will be available.
