  • 1.  RPM Probe Showing incorrect entry in messages log

    Posted 04-18-2012 00:14

    Hey all,

     

    Any chance someone can comment on the following problem I'm having with the routing redirect on a particular SRX? It isn't with the redirect itself, more with the RPM probe which I setup. 

     

    It's supposed to log PING_TEST_FAILED in the messages log as well as PING_TEST_COMPLETED. The problem I have is despite the host being down at the time, it continues to log COMPLETED which kinda screws up my setup. 

     

    Here's the log configuration;

     

    andy@CHIP-SRX100> show configuration system syslog file messages 

    any any;

    authorization info;

    daemon info;

     

    And here's the RPM probe configuration. 

     

    andy@CHIP-SRX100> show configuration services rpm 

    probe wxc {

        test wxc-ping {

            probe-type icmp-ping;

            target address 10.24.1.2;

            probe-count 3;

            probe-interval 1;

            test-interval 10;

        }

    }

     

    Now, despite the host being down. 

     

    andy@CHIP-SRX100> ping 10.24.1.2 

    PING 10.24.1.2 (10.24.1.2): 56 data bytes

    ^C

    --- 10.24.1.2 ping statistics ---

    3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

     

    And the RPM probe results agree. 

     

    andy@CHIP-SRX100> show services rpm probe-results 

        Owner: wxc, Test: wxc-ping

        Target address: 10.24.1.2, Source address: 10.24.1.1, Probe type: icmp-ping, Test size: 3 probes

        Probe results:

          Request timed out, Tue Apr 17 16:56:17 2012

        Results over current test:

          Probes sent: 3, Probes received: 0, Loss percentage: 100

        Results over last test:

          Probes sent: 3, Probes received: 0, Loss percentage: 100

        Results over all tests:

          Probes sent: 501, Probes received: 0, Loss percentage: 100

     

    It refuses to log PING_TEST_FAILED in the log and instead logs COMPLETED! 

     

    andy@CHIP-SRX100> show log messages | match PING | last 10 | no-more    

    Apr 17 16:55:38  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:55:51  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:55:58  CHIP-SRX100 mgd[6863]: UI_CMDLINE_READ_LINE: User 'andy', command 'ping 10.24.1.2 '

    Apr 17 16:56:04  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:56:17  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:56:30  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:56:43  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:56:56  CHIP-SRX100 rmopd[1253]: PING_TEST_COMPLETED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = wxc, pingCtlTestName = wxc-ping

    Apr 17 16:57:06  CHIP-SRX100 mgd[6863]: UI_CMDLINE_READ_LINE: User 'andy', command 'show log messages | match PING | last 10 | no-more '

     

    It's driving me nuts! Where am I going wrong?! This is an identical configuration as another SRX (and an EX switch), and both of those work without a problem.

     

    Cheers

    Andy

    Hi,

     

    If you add a threshold to your rpm configuration, for example like this:

    test test {
        probe-type icmp-ping;
        target address 10.24.1.2;
        probe-count 3;
        probe-interval 1;
        test-interval 10;
        thresholds {
            total-loss 1;
        }
    }

    You will see:

    rmopd[25541]: PING_PROBE_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = test, pingCtlTestName = test
    rmopd[25541]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = test, pingCtlTestName = test
    rmopd[25541]: PING_PROBE_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = test, pingCtlTestName = test
    rmopd[25541]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = test, pingCtlTestName = test
    rmopd[25541]: PING_TEST_FAILED: pingCtlOwnerIndex = test, pingCtlTestName = test

    Hi Adam, 

     

    Many thanks for the prompt response. Thats certainly fixed it!

     

    Strange that neither the EX or other SRX I've setup the transparent redirect on needs the threshold though! :S

     

    Best regards

    Andy
