processor legacy PA HEX chassis-code F04

I wonder if anyone can sched light on this problem I am having with an older rp5740. It's virtual front panel shows a rolling message as follows:

processor display_activity() update 1F00
processor legacy PA HEX chassis-code F04F

This scrolls endlessly.

There is only two entries in Google and they refer to power supplies. This server's power supplies are rock solid, with steady green lights.

FYI, this started after an update containing the following patches:


So, I wonder if any of you had seen this and, hopefully, has some useful advice to share.

No need to worry, no problem.

C hassis code FxnF:

Indicates the system is running. An F in the first and fourth digits indicates the system is run-
ning normally. The x is updated every 5 seconds with the length of the run queue at that time
(an instantaneous reading not an average). It indicates the number of processes. Loads higher
than 9 display as A. The n indicates the number of processors (1, 2, 3,or 4).

Hope this helps!

Go with torsten's explanation

This is perfectly noraml behaviour of the server

Presumably you are not experiencing any problems with the system? just checking it over?

Thank you .. yes, I was checking and this is behaviour I had not observed previously. Good to know because soon it will be time to patch some production servers.
