Nagios is going off about a bunch of things, I can't connect to mpt-vpn in any way, and we're starting to get alarms about build machines.

Assigning to dmoore for investigation.  Emailed him with some output already.

Short story:
Primary FWSM failed and the Standby never fully finished the takeover until I rebooted the Primary (core1).

Looks like it was about 13 mins of outage.  For RelEng, would have affected any inter-vlan traffic (Vlan90 to Vlan71).

This was a failover failure. The failover sync process (doorbell_poll) crashed on the Active module, which meant it began sending incomplete health messages. The two modules could not successfully negotiate a failover, leaving both of them in an intermediate state.

There is no pending fix from Cisco.
