  1. Hi,

    can you tell me how I can restart a particular router? Two routers crashed and I don't want to restart the whole VM.

    This is the error:
    *May 31 13:33:44.282: %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 4252 bytes failed from 0xA70A488, alignment 8

    How can I edit the NETMAP file?
