Large syslog.log file

Hello,

Our customer had an rp3440 running HPUX 11i v2 .
We nioticed that the syslog.log file became very large ; the following line is repeated continuously ( every second ) :
" Nov 23 04:01:36 bbacist1 vmunix: function == 0x803C8, arg == 0x41EB3400, ticks == 0xFECAB1F4, flags == 0x0 "

Please advice ASAP.

Thanks and Regards

Roger

Hi Roro,

Do you get anything like this also in syslog:
vmunix: Timeout called with negative time.

Hi.....

If any Symantec product is present on your server, then probably it is because of that and so you might have to take their support.

What is o/p of :

# echo "0x803C8/a" | adb -o /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem

Any Symantec product installed on your server?

Hi,

No Symantic product installed, only Oracle database and Oracle application.

Re: Large syslog.log file

Roro,

Have a look at this document from ITRC technical database.

Title: HP-UX 11i v1 Operating Environments - "Timeout called with negative time" error in dmesg and syslog.log file
Document ID: emr_na-c01205240-3

http://www11.itrc.hp.com/service/cki/docDisplay.do?docLocale=en&docId=emr_na-c01205240-4

The document describes a MPT driver error on 11.11 but there is also an update for 11.23.

Please find below the output of the following command :

# echo "0x803C8/i" | adb /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem
mpt_os_callback:

What do you suggest to do on the server.

Probably you need to update the MPT drivers.
