Strange System Log entries


I have all of a sudden been getting the following log entries and was wondering what they mean. Any help would be great.

Mar 20 19:55:16 rockweb last message repeated 61 times

The previous message of your log entries has been repeated many times in a short laps of time... So in order not to log too many times the same things, syslog daemon only warn you that "last message has been repeated"

Is this a problem or anything to worry about?

All depend on what kind of message you have before this one... But I think that's a problem, maybe not very serious... but it's better not to have error messages in its logs
