cr2-eqdfw (MX204) vhclient log noise
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The newly provisioned cr2-eqdfw, a MX204 is logging this every minute:

Aug 31 11:53:45  cr2-eqdfw vhclient.5357.daemon: vhclient instantiated by /bin/sh
Aug 31 11:53:45  cr2-eqdfw vhclient.5357.daemon: rsh -JU __juniper_private5__ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin:/sbin/ ; echo -e Write threshold rate/duration=4/1000 > /etc/diskmon.conf

Two lines every minute is a bit excessive even by Juniper standards, and makes show log messages a bit unusable. Let's please fix that, possibly with the help of JTAC?

Opened JTAC case 2018-0904-0650.

Edit, this might be PR1315128

If so the fix is to upgrade to 17.4R2 (released a week ago...), and filter out the logs until then.

Still waiting for JTAC.

Confirmed by JTAC, it's PR1315128.

Steps for the upgrade:

  • Verify image checksum
  • Start upgrade process request vmhost software add /var/tmp/junos-vmhost-install-mx-x86-64-17.4R2.4.tgz
  • Ensure no provider maintenance
  • Downtime monitoring
  • Disable external BGP sessions on cr2
deactivate protocols bgp group IX4
deactivate protocols bgp group IX6
deactivate protocols bgp group Transit4
deactivate protocols bgp group Transit6
  • Reboot router request router reboot
  • Verify back online / no outstanding alerts
  • Enable external BGP rollback 1
