Many ata1 and ata2 kernel issues reported

Post by ralf » 2019/10/31 15:39:20

Hi,

I have a newly installed (up-to-date) centos8 server, and Logwatch is telling me on a daily base:

I checked my SSD disks (ata1/ata2) ATA Samsung SSD 860 with SMART drive test,
First drive /dev/sda ( in Raid 1 with the second SSD, /dev/sdb):
SMART Self-test log structure revision number 1
Num Test_Description Status Remaining LifeTime(hours) LBA_of_first_error
# 1 Extended offline Completed without error 00% 359 -
# 2 Short offline Completed without error 00% 358 -
Second Drive (/dev/sdb):
SMART Self-test log structure revision number 1
Num Test_Description Status Remaining LifeTime(hours) LBA_of_first_error
# 1 Extended offline Completed without error 00% 361 -
Both disks seems OK.
I also did a RAM memory test, using MEMTEST86 (extended version) and no errors were reported.

So, are the reported issuse in the Logwatch daily report in your opinion kernel issues, or in reality hardware issues?

Any recommendations?

I would suggest that you post the rest of the messages around one of those occurrences as you have missed out a bunch of useful info that should be there. You may need to extract those direct from /var/log/messages.

The "WRITE FPDMA QUEUED" could perhaps be due to speed limits? (I found a similar link https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=218390).
My motherboard says SATA 6GB/s for all six SATA data ports.
Could it be cable issues ,as suggested i the referred post? Why than on two different cables? I did unplug and plugged in the cables a week ago, when I first saw these messages, but I noticed no difference after unplugging/plugging in the cables.
Any other comments/suggestions?

Many thanks!

I had similar problems on a Debian system with an old motherboard (ASUS M3A78-EM) when switching from my old SATA-SSD to the new one - both Samsung (830 and 860 PRO). Lots of link down / link up messages apeared at random times in the log. Changing cables didn't help. Finally I bought a recent AM4 motherboard (ASUS Prime B450M-A) and the messages disappeared.

I had similar problems too, an old fedora 4 or so, using dual boot

if i started windows first then reboot to linux i had a lot of disk errors

I would start by changing the SATA cables. Cheap, easy to do, might possibly be the problem.

You can also pass kernel parameters to restrict it from negotiating higher SATA rates to see if they go away at lower speeds. From my system I use libata.force=11:3.0G,9:1.5G - my example there has ata11 set to 3Gbps (an eSATA attached SSD in a case that says it's rated for eSATA 3Gbps but the system insists on trying to run it at 6Gbps with similar results to yours. I think ata9 is my DVD drive, has a similar problem but that one has to run at 1.5Gbps.

Thanks Trevor!
I did exchanged some cables before (sata 1 <-> 4 and sata 2 <-> 3), when my SSD disks started to fail, but that did have any effect as far as I remember, but I did not look into printer issues at that time....
I'll try it again with new ones (cheap check as you say). If that doesn't help, I will set speed limits as you propose.
Last way out will be to exchange the motherboard, though I am thinking of this more today than before, because of my persistent printing problems. Though these can be due to centos8 itself? I never had those printing problems with the same printer, server, and clients on centos7/macos.

@ Trevor:

I replaced the two ata1 and ata2 cables as you recommended, but same result. Still those errors for both drives.
Then I tried to reduce the speed with the command you gave:
libata.force=
But this is not installed on my centos8 system and I couldn't find the rpm which provides this.
Can you point me to the right rpm?

Thanks!

It's not part of any package. It's a kernel parameter that needs to be added to the kernel command line, either by interrupting the boot process at the grub menu and editing the parameters that get passed (that's a one-time thing, works only for the time you do it) or by changing grub.cfg to include it. For example, looking in /proc/cmdline on my system shows that I used this:

Code: Select all

BOOT_IMAGE=/vmlinuz-3.10.0-1062.4.1.el7.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/...  ...LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 crashkernel=0@0 libata.force=11:3.0G,9:1.5G

Mmm. I think this is beyond where I feel comfortable to experiment.
Sounds a bit too risky to do this on a running web/mail server or when doing off-line, losing the whole server for some time.
I think my only option left is to look for another motherboard.

My printing issues are very weird (see updated post posting.php?mode=reply&f=48&t=72277) and can either be due to a bug in the centos8 server packages, or it is hardware also related to the server hardware, in particular the motherboard, as I cannot find anything wrong with the SSD's nor the RAM.
As I cannot find anything similar to my problem with centos8, I think I need to conclude that it is hardware related.

My home was exposed to 3 subsequent outages within 15 sec (and probably over-voltages) some weeks ago and I lost 2 SSD's on the server (now replaced and loaded with centos8 instead of centos7 before)), all RAM in my iMac (now replaced) and my RAID1 on the iMac was out of order too (back in business again. My guess is that something is wrong with the server motherboard too, though I hoped it would not be damaged....

Thanks for your help!
