Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

This issue has been seen on systems where mpathadm and/or cfgadm are frequently used, e.g. mpathadm show lu <device>.  Threads may hang with stacks similar to this below, indicating that the thread was trying to send a sysevent message to the syseventd daemon.
