Link-change Events

Hi guys,

 

What is the meaning of these "link-change" events, as shown below.

Hi,

 

Looks like ports went down/up. Flapping possible

 

You can check for every port status:

 

> show log system object equal ethernet1/1

 

Thx,

Link change is telling you that something changed in the link that the Palo Alto noticed. I'll include a screenshot of mine but usually these are occompanied by a Down message unless it's your first time plugging that port into the device. 

Looking at it I would actually think to look at your speed and duplex settings on the equipment that these ports are plugged into; it looks like your switch may be having a hard time auto-negotiating that information. Capture.PNG

Thanks for the replies guys.

 

We keep seeing errors like these below when issuing following command: less mp-log l2ctrld.log

Maybe this could also be related to a faulty speed/duplex detection?

However, we don’t see any errors on the interfaces themselves, also not on the connected switches.

The link-change events have been there since we configured everything, but they haven't been an issue up to now. There are switches upstream of the Palo before a call server we have in place also.

 

Kind regards
