XTUN-1999 FTRACE buffer 3 has been triggered

We're running a number Brocade 7800s at FOS 6.4.2a

Periodically we're getting the above warning messages which are being trapped by our SNMP monitoring environment.

reading around the issue and trawlin t'internet, all I can find is:



<timestamp>, , <sequence-number>,WARNING, <system-name>, FTRACE buffer <FTRACE Trace Buffer Number> has been triggered.


Probable Cause


Indicates that a programmed trigger event has been detected.


Recommended Action

If there was an unexpected job failure associated with this event, contact your vendor's customer support for assistance.





So not much use at all really?!?!?!

I'm trying to determine what might be causing this and what I can do to stop these alerts beings generated. A quick check across all 8 of our 7800s shows there appears once every couple of days.
