Re: 5406zl syslog

...of course, this is SNMP - not syslog. Can't seem to find how many MAC addresses the switch can hold.

Re: 5406zl syslog

Hi Paulen,

It looks like this is part of Instrumentation Monitoring and the mac-address-count has been set for the medium threshold (1000).

You can change the threshold through the CLI of the switch.

procurve5406(config)# instrumentation monitor mac-address-count

or you can specify a particular value to the threshold:

procurve5406(config)# instrumentation monitor mac-address-count <1-2147483647>

So the message is just a warning that a configured threshold has been exceeded versus the mac address table being too full.

Hope that helps!

Re: 5406zl syslog

Hi,

Yes, I got that - I even changed the value using snmpset. However, I can't find the max number of MACs stored in the FDB.

So my second question remains.

Re: 5406zl syslog

My understanding is the 5400's and 8200's have the same size routing and MAC tables. Both units list the route table size as 10,000 entries. The 8200 lists the MAC table size as 64,000 entries, but I have not found any documentation that explicitly calls out that number for the 5400.
