request chassis fabric pfe



Make a specified fabric of the packet forwarding engine (PFE) offline.

This command makes only the specified PFE of the FPC offline and rest of the PFEs of the FPC are not affected. If a PFE of an FPC is affected because of fabric path wedge errors, the affected PFE is disabled and the associated fabric goes offline as part of fabric hardening actions. The output of the show chassis fabric fpcs and show chassis fabric plane commands show a new state for the PFE as Fabric Disabled.

Fabric stream wedge occurs when the ASIC of the FPC is in the stuck state, and the ingress PFE fails to send traffic to the destination PFE. You can use the request chassis fabric pfe pfe-number fpc fpc-number offline command to make any PFE offline.


This statement does not have an option to bring the PFE back online. You must restart the FPC to bring the PFE back online.





[0–11] or [0–5] or [0–19] or [0–2], depending on the type of the chassis.
