liunx system log error

i have three serves Hp DL380R05 E5310 with Linux release
every time i check the server i see these error

Re: liunx system log error

This is not an error. This is an informational message when kernel boots - boot.msg file.

Re: liunx system log error

Welcome to the ITRC Forums!

Not all log messages are errors.

These are informative messages generated when the kernel is starting up. It is reading the ACPI tables included in the system firmware, describing the hardware interrupt routing settings.

These messages are printed out so that if there is a problem at the hardware set-up causing the system to freeze at boot, you can see exactly how far the boot procedure got.

The "disabled" at the PCI interrupt link LNKE simply means that link is not used in your system board. You would have to be a fairly advanced hardware engineer to know if this is true or not. If the LNKE is actually in use, then the ACPI table contains an error and you would need an updated BIOS firmware to fix it. But if LNKE is actually not connected to anything on the system board, disabling it is the correct thing to do.

If you're building prototype PCI cards or developing a driver for new hardware, these messages might contain useful information for you. But in that case, you would already have read the PCI and ACPI specifications and could understand these messages better than I do.

But if you're using well-known, supported hardware with production-quality drivers, you won't need to care about this.

i update the BIOS after that i check the OS log error with dmesg | tail -1000:

are this massage are error?if it how to fix it?

Re: liunx system log error

Not an error.

Just a table showing how the PCI hardware interrupt lines are mapped to software interrupts handled by the kernel (or at least how the ACPI table of the BIOS *says* they are).

Re: liunx system log error

hi
i check i found two things that it may help
1-the RAM take all load and the SWAP take nothing from load .
free RAM 17m and the SWAP 3855m
how i fix this?
2-when i check the fdisk -l it show this:
Disk /dev/cciss/c0d0: 293.4 GB, 293496628224 bytes

this may happen the error.
how i fix it?

Re: liunx system log error

1.) RAM is much faster than swap, so swap is used only when all RAM is already used. You don't want your servers to use swap on a regular basis. When actually using swap, your system is trading away I/O and processing capacity to compensate for the lack of RAM.

You should think of the swap as an emergency reserve for short-term memory overload spikes.

So, not a problem.

2.) "Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary" is a problem only if you're dual-booting your Linux servers to some old OS that cannot use the LBA method of addressing the disk. (Anything over 8.4 GB is considered "large" in this sense.) Otherwise, this message is completely meaningless.

Your partition table indicates your system has only Linux installed. So you don't need to care about this.
