I Know You Have Yours
I have mine. When I go looking at a server for the first time, I wanna know about stuff like corruption, stack dumps, 15 second I/O warnings, frozen I/O, and non-yielding schedulers.
You know, the real meaty, hair on fire stuff.
Hm. Meat on fire. I’m hungry.
Despite how relatively easy it is to dig through the error log for stuff, most people don’t do it, even programmatically.
I can understand not wanting to go through by hand — that’s a nightmare. You end up sifting through gobs of successful backup and login failed messages. Yeah, you can suppress those, but that doesn’t help the first time you look at a server.
And so I pose the question to you, dear readers:
What are your favorite error log messages?
Leave a comment. It’s Friday. You’re already drunk, anyway.
