Logging VWire Link State Change in the System Logs

Logging VWire Link State Change in the System Logs

When link state pass through is enabled in VWire, why do the logs only show one interface down? 



 This is expected behavior.  As an example, if two interfaces, Ethernet 2/1 and  Ethernet 2/2, are configured as a VWire pair with link state pass through enabled, if Ethernet 2/1 goes down for any reason, Ethernet 2/2 will also go offline automatically. The Ethernet 2/1 event will be logged in the system logs but not the automatic link state change of  Ethernet 2/2  


Only the link which triggered the failure is recorded in order to identify the link with the problem. One

can confirm that Ethernet 2/2 is down either from the WebGUI by looking at the interface state or from CLI with the following command:

 > show interface Ethernet 2/2.
