I am only posting this question as I do not see an actual issue so far, but do not want one to creep up and bite me. Thanks

What error are you referring too?

IdMgr: Current memory usage 460 Kbytes, 90 percent of 512 Kbytes. No new Identities shall be added to the database.

I also just noticed, after upgrading some switches to 16.2.1.6 that I also receive the same message. Thanks

Hello Dean,

This type of message is associated with Identity Management feature.

Please, enter the command "configure identity-management database memory-size " to adjust its size. The valid range is 64 - 49152 Kbytes.

For you case, I think you could triplicate the current size (to 1536Kb).

Hey Dean,

Coming to this reported log error message, please find below the meaning and remedy for the same:

They are logged when the size of Identity database reaches near to max size configured. Before adding any new information in identity management, check for memory availability is performed. If 90% of the maximum allocated memory is already used and new information is to be added to the database, then these will be generated. This can be an indicator of error condition as too many identities have been discovered on the device

Remedy:

This message is for error notification purpose, and indicates that too many users/device have been detected on the device. Admin may want to check the reason for the discovery of so many identities on the device. Also, admin may want to check the configured memory size for identity database and increase the memory size, if required.
