Manage an error by using the error identifier. This feature allows you to disable an error or modify its severity. The disable option allows you to stop the error from being reported in the system until the error is enabled again.

An error-id, a unique error identifier, is represented as a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), and is composed of a module identifier and an error identifier. For example, the error-id “/fpc/2/platformd/0/cm/0/precl/3/PRECL_CMERROR_INQ_BUF_OVERFLOW” indicates a CM error due to buffer overflow.


  • severity—Apply a new severity to the error ID. You can apply any of the following severities:

    • fatal—Fatal error on the FPC. An error that results in blockage of considerable amount of traffic across modules is a fatal error.

    • major—Major error on the FPC. An error that results in continuing loss of packet traffic but does not affect other modules is a major error.

    • minor—Minor error on the FPC. An error that results in the loss of a single packet but is fully recoverable is a minor error.

  • state—By default, an error is in “enabled” state.

    • disable—Disable an error.
