Description (partial)


Process reporting memory allocation (malloc) failures.

One such process might be BGP as it can potentially use a lot of memory:

RP/0/RP1/CPU0:ios#RP/0/RP1/CPU0:Feb 15 17:28:07 : bgp[123]: %ROUTING-BGP-3-NOMEM_RESET : [8] : Failed to allocate memory for path, resetting neighbor  : pkg/bin/bgp : (PID=
426237) :  -Traceback= 40024e90 4002684c 400270d8 40027314 4c1e453c 4c1e261c 4dfb9b40 4001fc70 4c25e3c4


This would happen when the memory utilization of the process gets close to 1.4 Gigabytes of memory.
