errors are flodding in x-450 15.1 version switch. Why these errors are there?

Swati,

Are there any other messages that accompany this message?  Could you provide a section of the logs containing this message?

Is VRRP stable?

Yes vrrp is stale. No traffic impact. After this we have software failure messages when we login into the switch because TfdbSyncTa is in suspended state.
I would like to understand the meaning of vrrpinput message error.

The error indicates there was a problem when processing messages at the CPU for the VRRP process.  This is likely due to the suspended process or a previous process crash.

In your first post you indicated this was an X450 switch.  Is that correct?  These messages look like they may be from a legacy ExtremeWare switch.

Okay.  It may be best to schedule a reboot of the chassis to recover from the process crash.  The errors are likely due to the crash.

Hi,
But vrrp task is not in suspended state. So how did we come to know that vrrp might have crashed?

I didn't intend to suggest that VRRP crashed.  I can tell that you have experienced some type of crash based on the software failure messages you receive when logging into the switch.  Whatever this failure may be, it could have some interaction with the VRRP process potentially leading to these messages.  Further investigation is probably required on the software crash, but a reboot will likely resolve the VRRP and other errors you are seeing.

The log message itself indicates a problem when processing messages at the CPU.
