Description (partial)

A nexus 5010/5020 series switch may be unable to process control plane packets during the execution of show file bootflash:filename md5sum while it computes the md5 checksum. Among symptoms this will cause the session to the device to hang, FEXes to drop offline, LACP or UDLD to time out.

The system is relatively low on resources, the amount of free memory is below the size of the file on which we run the md5sum command.
