High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Hello there,

I read that HPE experts will be online and  can help to solve some puzzles :)

I have a issue with high CPU usage by FMCK task on my 2xS5800 and 2xA5800 IRF stack.

Below is output of some commands from both 2xS5800 affected nodes.

I marked "Email me when someone replies", so, just let me know if you need more information.

Regards,

i

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Dear Customer,

The FMCK is a Switch management task.

Below things may be a cause for this High CPU usage :

=> Configuration Restoration,
=> Active / Standby MPU Switchovers.
=> When there is a Line card insertion.

The CPU usage of these task may rise for a short time. These are a normal phenomenon.


=> If there is any H/W faults, due to which we notice many interupts, we may see the CPU usage of these tasks also rises abnormally.

Also check for any Network Loop Exists
Check this below link :

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

 Thanks for the answer, hovewer, there are no loops, no active/standby switchovers or line cards insertions.

 FMCK task CPU consumption is constant, not for a short time.

Below is additional information regarding this issue, please let me know if you need additional info,

Thanks

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Dear Customer, 

 Did you happen to reboot the switch and check was the issue still persisting?

What is the current firmware version?  

Any abnormal information / warnings in the logs?, "Display logbuffer Reverse"

How long you are facing this issue?
Prior noticing this High CPU Usage issue, was there any changes in your network? if yes, could that be causing this? Anything that you remember here?

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Comware Software, Version 5.20, Release 1808P17

Unfortunately this stack is a part of our critical network infrastructure and its not rebooted and not updated for a long time. It is not an easy task to get a maintenance window and approval for reboot or FW upgrade.

"dis log re" shows only iMC activity and no any anomalies nor errors.

This issue appears on 1st slot for about a month ago, and on a 2nd slot about a 2 weeks ago.

There are no changes in our network, SFP modules, boards, etc,  which can reflect this Fault Management ChecK (FMCK) task for the past month.

Hovewer, there are few CRC errors per second on one of IRF interfaces on slot 1. Can it be a root of cause for this issue?

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Dear customer, 

We have to check those 2 Input errors / CRC errors are they accumulated ones over a period of time. orelse are they still incremental?

What is the switch uptime here?

And are we able to see what are those 2 inputs error details under, "display logbuffer"?

If you are still seeing on going CRC errors on the IRF Ports of Slot 1, then there is a high chances of questioning how the control plane traffic is being passed here? and BTW, what is the status of the IRF Link status? "display irf link"

I understand the situation that it is critical network at your infrastructure, however having a CPU usage of 89% it not normal. Even a little spike would bring your network down. You may have to create a downtime to trouble shoot this one.

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Dear Customer, 

I would try a reboot and if that does not fix, then a firmware upgrade, in such situation.

You may log a case and check if any more investigation is left here, You would require the serial number of the device and depending upon the warranty entitlement, they can provide you assistance here.

Note : Even for the support and R&D to work on such situation, they would expect to have the minimum firmware version on the devices. Or else they may not be able to assist : https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=a00050829en_us

Re: High CPU usage by FMCK task on S5800 stack

Ok, seems like there are no other options rather than reboot and FW upgrade. Will try this approach, thanks.
