Re: "debug k" freezing Cisco routers?

In effect the router is unable to process the extremely large list of
stdout k logs.

I see the same effect with "debug" only.

I think that's not a bug, its only a CPU high usage issue.

Hi All,

At level 15 permissions, when I enter "debug k" on the CLI the router
freezes immediately, requiring a manual reboot.

While not a vulnerability per se, perhaps something to keep in mind
from the fat-finger risk?

Anyone else seeing this?

Kindest regards,
