I am getting entries like this in dmesg.
ad10: TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries left) LBA=355277839
ad10: TIMEOUT - WRITE_DMA retrying (2 retries left) LBA=358666287
smartctl -t long /dev/ad10 shows it to be good though. The results
from the times I have run it show it completing successfully every
time. I believe I have no reason to suspect a bad disk and it just a
crappy chip. From what I have read in the mailing list archives, I
believe this to be true. Any one have any opinions otherwise on this
or the like?
The machine this is running on has releng_5 on it.
I was wondering if any one had any suggestions on a good for a good
sata pci card that preferably has 4 connectors on it.
SiI 3112 sysctl entry if any one is curious.
