Description (partial)


A Cisco Catalyst 6500 running Modular IOS outputs the following incomplete error message:

Apr  9 00:15:15: %PACKET-DFC3-3-PACKETHDRDUMP: 
 Packet Header 0x103DAC8  : packet.proc : (PID=12308, TID=3) : -Traceback=( ([16:-4]1-dso-+0x41758) ([26:0]+0x2E978) ([26:0]+0x2EDCC) ([15:-9]45+0x5DC8) ([26:0]+0x6870) 

There should be more than one error PACKETHDRDUMP message. Each such error message is supposed to dump the contents of the corrupted packet header.


The error message is printed when the Cisco Modular IOS software detects a packet corruption.
