Got a question about my messages log file. I hope this is the correct forum.
This morning I noticed that some entries in my /var/log/messages file are not chronological in order when I cat out the file... here is an example:
May 13 21:02:06 serverName udevsend: starting udevd daemon
May 13 21:02:08 serverName rc.sysinit: -e
May 14 01:03:01 serverName kernel: Initializing CPU#0
May 13 21:02:09 serverName scsi.agent: disk at /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1.2/1-1.2:1.1/host2/target2:0:0/2:0:0:0
May 14 01:03:01 serverName kernel: CPU 0 irqstacks, hard=c03ee000 soft=c03ce000
May 13 21:02:09 serverName scsi.agent: cdrom at /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1.2/1-1.2:1.0/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0
May 14 01:03:01 serverName kernel: PID hash table entries: 4096 (order: 12, 65536 bytes)
This doesn't happen througout the whole log file, but in different spots. I also checked in the rotated log files (messages.1, messages.2, etc.) and see sections in those files as well where this has happened..
Does anyone know what is going on and if it is something I should be concerned about?
Thanks in advance.
