Is your /dev/sdc a physical hard disk in the machine? Or is it some sort of network attached device?

If it's a physical disk in the server then it's dying and needs to be replaced. If it's a network (iSCSI?) device then it looks like you have network connection problems... or the device is dying.

Hi Trevor,

Thanks for your reply.

The server is a VM and running on ESXi host. yes it's a iSCSI device.

I can see the I/O errors on two disks sdc and sdd which are coming from same datastore.

is the below error related to the same I/O error or something related to syslog-ng service?

"syslog-ng[26239]: I/O error occurred while writing; fd='235', error='Connection refused (111)"
Thanks,
Naresh Y

Well syslog-ng would get similar errors if you had network problems at the time.
