Description (partial)

ESP crashes reporting BQS SRT Stem memory parity interrupt. 

Due to the nature of this bug, it has only been observed under large scale
ANCP deployments where ANCP is doing adjustments on the grandparent shaper
rate. The hardware scheduler reacts to a very rare and unexpected confluence of events by reading a piece of internal memory that is unused and uninitialized. This leads to a non-recoverable parity error and causes a reload of the FP complex, which requires an ESP reload (modular chassis) or a chassis reload (consolidated chassis).

Only the following platforms may experience the issue.
ASR1000 Series 5-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP5)
ASR1000 Series 10-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP10)
ASR1000 Series 10-Gbps Embedded Services Processor Non Crypto (ESP10-N)
ASR1000 Series 20-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP20)
ASR1000 Series 40-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP40)

The following platforms use different hardware and are not affected. 
ASR1000 Series 100-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP100)
ASR1000 Series 200-Gbps Embedded Services Processor (ESP200)
