Recommended Nexus N9K release (EVE)

Post by cbarbudo » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:10 pm

I've tested 7.0.3 releases & 9.3.2, but use to have some unstability with release 9.3.2 (not related to CPU or Memory peaks on EVE).

Any recommended N9K for EVE labs? Did you suffered similar issues with recent N9K releases?

Thanks in advance.

I don't believe that there is a recommended version.

Most of the time it is stable "~80%".

Currently I use two versions for the Nexus 9K 7.0.3.I7.7 and 9.3.1. Have tried other versions of the 7.0.3.x family before.

Randomly from time to time I get crashes for both versions, also not a resources issues.
I'm running eve on bare metal on a HP DL360 G7 with 16CPU and 48G RAM.

A simple topology with two Nexus switches running vPC, and one of them just crash randomly.

Tried to enable/disable UKSM, still get crashes from time to time, so I doubt that its related.

May be we might be missing something here.
