Post EXT3 FS mesaasges


Hello guys.

I have a system with these lines in /var/log/messages:


Code:
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: EXT3 FS on dm-4, internal journal
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
Jan 29 15:49:10 SYS1 kernel: EXT3 FS on dm-3, internal journal
Now i know these messages are normal, as they are related to file systems being mounted, and in which manner.
But the log files are full with them, and not just on a reboot.

Any thoughts on why they would appear, not after a reboot, but on a system that has a pretty high uptime?

Thanks a lot!

Implication is that the disks are being re-mounted a lot.
Either one or more progs are doing this, or possibly the disks are going bad.
Can you find anything else in any logs at about the same timestamp?
What progs are running?
If you suspect the disks, have a look at http://linux.die.net/man/8/smartctl
