    Display Craft Interface Error Messages in the System Log File

    Purpose

    To determine the details of the craft interface error messages in the system log file.

    Action

    To display craft interface error messages in the system log file, use the following command:

    Sample Output

    For an M20 router:

    user@host>  show log messages
    Jun  3 16:43:19 flitter ssb CM(0): ALARM SET: (Major) fxp0: ethernet link down 
    Jun  3 16:43:19 flitter craftd[582]: forwarding display request to chassisd: type = 4, subtype = 43 
    Jun  3 16:43:19 flitter alarmd[581]: Alarm set: fxp0 color=RED, class=ETHER, reason=fxp0: ethernet link down 
    Jun  3 16:43:19 flitter mib2d[586]: SNMP_TRAP_LINK_DOWN: ifIndex 1, ifAdminStatus up(1), ifOperStatus down(2), ifName fxp0
    Jun  3 16:43:21 flitter /kernel: fxp0: media DOWN 100Mb / full-duplex
    

    For M40e and M160 routers:

    user@host>  show log messages
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter craftd[2654]:  Minor alarm set, Front Top Fan Absent
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter chassisd[2652]: CHASSISD_BLOWERS_SPEED: blowers 
    being set to full speed [fan/blower missing]
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter alarmd[2653]: Alarm set: Fan color=YELLOW, 
    class=CHASSIS, reason=Front Top Fan Absent
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter craftd[2654]: fpm led error: Unknown error: -1
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter alarmd[2653]: Alarm set: Craft IF color=YELLOW, 
    class=CHASSIS, reason=Craft Failure
    Jun  7 18:18:50 myrouter craftd[2654]:  Minor alarm set, Craft Failure
    

    Meaning

    The messages system log file records the time the failure or event occurred, the severity level, a code, and a message description. Use the show log messages command to browse error messages that are generated at least 5 minutes before and after an event. Use this information to diagnose a problem and to let the Juniper Networks Technical Assistance Center (JTAC) know what error messages were generated and the router events prior to the event.

    For an M20 router, the messages file output shows that the Ethernet management interface (fpx0) that provides an out-of-band method for connecting to the router from the craft interface is down. For more information about system log messages, see the Junos OS System Log Messages Reference.

    For an M160 router, since the craft interface is attached to the front top fan, you see both craft interface and fan error messages.
