Symptoms

Error message in ltm log: bcm56xxd: reading L2 entry Operation failed bs_arl.cpp.

Impact

Error messages in /var/log/ltm. Messages appear similar to the following: err bcm56xxd[7453]: 012c0011:3: Error: reading L2 entry 68416: Operation failed bs_arl.cpp(1579)

Conditions

bcm56xxd periodically reads the switch's internal L2 table to save certain L2 information for internal debug use. Reads to unused entries of this table might fail and produce an error.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

In this release, the seldom-used internal debug table has been removed, which eliminates the periodic accesses.
