Ops Center Agent Fills /Var/Adm/Messages File (Doc ID 1442433.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Many customers are using Ops Center to manage their systems.

The Ops Center Agent is using the libmpapi calls every 5 minutes to scan for new FC-LUNs (performed by a binary xvmluinfo, part of Ops Center Agent).

It is very common to use the /etc/syslog.conf entry of "*.debug" to monitor error messages of applications and/or servers.

This syslog.entry is now causing on all Solaris 10 Agents a filling up of /var/adm/messages.
