kern.syslog.drops

Severity

ERROR

Description

This event is generated when we detect that syslog messages were dropped before being logged. Syslog messages may be dropped if one or more Data ONTAP subsystems are generating many syslog messages over short period of time. That can be an indicator that those subsystems are experiencing problems that need to be resolved.

Corrective Action

Look in the syslog messages file at the messages prior to this message. If they all seem to be coming from a common subsystem, it may indicate that there is a problem with that subsystem. Attempt to resolve the problem with that subsystem.

Syslog Message

Dropped %d syslog messages starting at %s due to lack of internal log buffers

Parameters

numDrops (INT): The number of messages that have been dropped.
timestamp (STRING): A timestamp that indicates the time when the syslog messages started being dropped.
