Mount command line is logged at inappropriate log level in RHEL 6

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • rgmanger, misleading mount cmd in syslog
  • When a service does mount a filesystem the mount command itself is logged with a severity of "err". This may confuse some monitoring. Please compare example below.
2013-03-11T16:11:15.011719+01:00,aeptst001,rgmanager[14016]:,local4,err, [fs] mount -t ext4  /dev/mapper/VGmysqldb1-LVmysqldb /opt/MYSQLDB1
  • Customer is using a straightforward cluster.conf, using default log settings. They noticed that mounts of filesystems are logged at LOG_ERR priority.
  • As this is a normal cluster operation, they are expecting this to be logged at a lesser priority (e.g. rgmanager's default of LOG_INFO).
  • Please backport

  • resource-agents releases prior to 3.9.2-40.el6
