Re: unexpected dirty buffer

Hello.

On a server running 2.4.25, I have the two following errors in the kernel logfile:

Unexpected dirty buffer encountered at do_get_write_access:618 (08:11 blocknr 920707)
Unexpected dirty buffer encountered at do_get_write_access:618 (08:11 blocknr 920707)


It's probably a driver problem.



Should I worry about them (disk failure, filesystem damage) ?

It's possible, depending on which driver is having trouble.


Did you run fsck?


Thanks.



As an addition what does the pair '08:11' means ? Is this the major/minor of the hard disk partition where the filesystem is located ?

Yes, check /proc/partitions.
