messages in syslog

I have the following message in syslog.log. Can anyone tell me what is generating this?

sdisk_exec[1290]: Drive on device path (8/8.8.0.255.0.0.0) having problems **REPLACE ASAP**

It sounds like it could be generated from the sdisk driver but I've never seen such a message before.

What is process 1290? this seems to be the process that produced it.

From appearances, it is telling you to replace a drive. Is this some type of array?
If so, what does the array info indicate? Is there a fail-over that has taken place?

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes, this is an array, but no errors or failovers were documented in the array log. My feeling is that this is a custom monitoring routine - I'm not on-site so I can't be sure.
