No response to this question on freebsd-questions so I am contacting 
you directly. Thanks in advance....



What is the significance of this log warning?

istgt_iscsi.c:4039:istgt_iscsi_transfer_out: ***WARNING*** pending_pdus > 0

I receive this warning very regularly.  Source code was not commented 
unfortunately...

There is no obvious association observed between the warning and 
iscsi load levels.

as the iscsi target
