Description of problem:
Starting with RH 7.3, I have been experienced and have been annoyed with
console messages of considerable quantity and of various nature. There seems
to be a consensus that 7.3 is a "noisy" kernel from different folks at RedHat.
Is there a reason behind this, and/or any info on how to suppress or redirect?
Here are some samples of things I did not see pre 7.3 :
1) kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno
2) scsi0:A:0:0: Tagged Queuing enabled. Depth 253
3) Attached scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lu
4) kernel: Warning - running *really* short on DMA buffers
5) kernel: ENOMEM in journal_alloc_journal_head, retrying.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Normal use of system, scsi devices in particular
Actual Results: See messages as indicated above, some repeat, some are one
time per boot (ie. device init info).
Expected Results: The way it was pre 7.3, quiet.
Would like to be able to supress or redirect info. We have operators on the
console, so this is important.
most of the messages you quote are boot time only
anyway dmesg -nX will allow you to set what goes to the console and what not
(see man dmesg for values of X you care about)
