Deciphering continuing mpt2sas syslog messages

view full story

http://serverfault.com – Summary I have been getting these cryptic messages in syslog since I installed some new hardware and I can't figure out what the problem is, if it's serious, or what to do about it. They're from the new SATA HBA and they follow a pattern. I will get several of the first message followed by several of the second message 5-30 seconds later. They come in blobs that are all logged in the same second and the exact amount of each varies between about 2 and 35. It can be minutes or hours between appearances of the entries. Example of the two messages: Jul 13 06:06:23 durandal kernel: [366918.4355 (HowTos)
