what is brcm-iscsi.log ?
 
Hi All,

Recently a few days ago a log file has been created on our server called brcm-iscsi.log. I do not know what does it contains but seems like something related to scsi devices.
I checked the log file and it contains this values.

ERR [Fri May 06 06:03:24 2011]NIC_NL waiting binding to NETLINK_ISCSI socket

then I run /etc/init.d/iscsi status and it shows
iscsid is stopped

log file is getting bigger day by day. I could redirect null value in the log file but this is not a proper solution and earlier the log file was not there so please suggest.

Thanks

I had the same problem with a 200m file growing all the time. I am using Centos 5 which appears to start a scsi service by default even if you are not using it. Google found a post in Spanish which gave me the answer (warning; stopping and disabling a service might nix your machine if it does require scsi). Here is google translation of the Spanish post from osdir.com /ml /centos-es /2011-06 /msg00065.html :

* From CentOS 5.6 The iSCSI service is started by default *, if not
are using iSCSI to connect to a network storage
you can forget about the mistakes:)

To prevent you from coming back you can disable and stop the
services "iscsi" and "iscsid"

# Chkconfig iscsi off
# Chkconfig iscsid off
# Service iscsi stop

I experienced the same problem after upgrading from Centos 5.5 to 5.6 on my VPS. I had to disable and stop the iSCSI services like simbo mentioned:

Code:

sudo chkconfig iscsi off
sudo chkconfig iscsid off
sudo service iscsid stop
sudo service iscsi stop
