rp3440 System Event PDCE_CALL_TOOK_TOO_LONG

Hello everybody

I went down to the "bunker" this morning, and found an amber LED in one of our servers.

It's a small server: two-way rp3440 with 8Gb RAM. We're using it with a fully loaded ds2110 (4*146 Gb disks)

On reviewing the server's System Event Log, I find this message:

404 SFW 0 2 0x43800F2600E03240 0000000300000002 PDCE_CALL_TOOK_TOO_LONG
09 May 2005 13:03:24
405 SFW 0 2 0x43800F2700E03260 000000000001051C PDCE_CALL_TIME_IN_USECS
09 May 2005 13:03:24

Sorry for the ugly alignment.

Could anyone please shed some light on this cryptic little message? What is a PDCE, and what can make its calls take too long?

Thanks very much

Hi Bernando,

Check patch PHSS_30838

Corrected an issue that filled the SEL log with
PDCE_CALL_TAKE_TOO_LONG events which would require clearing the log before using autoboot.


Best regards,
