Description paulm 2002-08-29 10:31:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Would like to be able to supress or redirect info. We have operators on the 
console, so this is important.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-08-29 10:35:45 UTC
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)
