Description

When VRRP exists on the same broadcast domain as a host with CARP, the logs get flooded with:

carp_input: received len 20 < sizeof(struct carp_header)

It's hard coded in ip_carp.c. It's probably safe to remove the log entirely, though having all those CARP logs sysctl-controlled would be ideal.

History

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

This is now patched.

It can be made sysctl aware if desired since 2.0 has sysctls exposed to the user interface. It can be teached to carp code to log such messages when log level is more than 2 or 3!
