The messages indicate that an internal error may have occurred when reading counter values from switch hardware. Normal packet switching/routing is not affected.
If a SOV3208-0202 option module is installed on a SK8208-0808-F8 fabric module, and one or more of the 10G ports on the fabric module contain 1G SFPs, then link may not be properly established on the ports with SFPs following system initialization.
Recommended upgrade code: 8.62.03.x
