EDAC errors continuously reported in Linux system log
Last updated on MAY 07, 2009
Applies to:Linux Kernel - Version: 4.4
The system contains dedicated EDAC hardware, such as Intel 5000 Memory Controller found in a Dell PowerEdge M600 Blade server.
Every second, entries such as the following are reported in the /var/log/messages and ultimately the system hangs:
Apr 8 11:47:53 usellx78 kernel: EDAC i5000 MC0: NON-FATAL ERRORS Found!!! 1st NON-FATAL Err Reg= 0x800
Apr 8 11:47:53 usellx78 kernel: EDAC i5000: NON-Retry Errors, bits= 0x800
Low-level hardware diagnostics fail to reveal any memory hardware issues.
