Re: “dmesg” Alert

This is what you should see right after the reboot of machine has been completed. If dmesg logs more messages in time, those are the one that you should pay close attention to, although not all messages logged there are necessarily crippling to your system. Keep this copy of dmesg output in a file and maybe set up a cron job to check it every few hours and send you an email if there are discrepancies, which means things got logged to dmesg. That would be my suggestion.

Re: “dmesg” Alert

What particular line troubles you? I don't see any errors. Better you just look at syslog.

>Mel: maybe set up a cron job to check it every few hours

You can log dmesg(1m) output with something like:
/usr/sbin/dmesg - >> /var/adm/messages

Re: “dmesg” Alert

These are normal boot up messages.

Hope this helps!

Re: “dmesg” Alert

It simply means you aer likely using a later model PARISK server that has an ancient USB implementation. Likely an rp3XXX series server.
