    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me what the following message in the logs mean and if there is a way to drop it? /kernel: hw.chassis.startup_time update to 1662799071.270472

    It is an MX104 v21.1 R1.11 It doesnt appear to be service impacting but solarwinds is saying the CPU load is 92% because of this.

    Any input appreciated

    Thanks

    There should be no way that the CPU load is that high because of that message.

    It's just the startup time of the device, displayed in EPOC time.

    You can use this to convert it to a time if you're interested - Epoch Converter - Unix Timestamp Converter 

    But you should just filter out the message as it doesn't really provide useful information that you couldn't find out with "show system uptime".

    set system syslog file messages match "!(.*hw.chassis.startup_time.*)"

    Same syntax for syslog hosts.

    Yeah i've had a look on the chassis and the CPU is normal so looks like solarwinds is freaking out. Was the only odd thing in the logs so i've put 2+2 together and come up with 5! 

    Thanks for the filter sytax though going to put that on!
