:I recently saw these messages on a 1.8.2 system:
:> Warning: vfsync_bp skipping dirty buffer 0xc1a03e00
:> Warning: vfsync_bp skipping dirty buffer 0xc1912600
:> Warning: vfsync_bp skipping dirty buffer 0xc1a10c00
:Is it cause for concern?
It's the filesystem syncer saying 'hey, I can't flush buffer X because
someone has it locked!'. As long as the same message doesn't repeat
every 30 seconds forever, you are fine. It's basically just a debug
message used to catch filesystem syncer stalls.
