[OpenAFS] What does this log message mean
Fri, 27 Jan 2006 09:29:27 -0700
The thing that's interesting is that the messages we've seen are always
the same pattern:
Sat Jan 21 14:24:56 2006 FindClient: client X(Y) already
had conn 12bbb28 (host 894ea06a), stolen by client X(Y)
This looks like the same client/SID is stealing from itself??
For the 2 hosts almost always identified (host xyz) we're seeing
intermittent data access failures that we're trying to sort out.
We've seen a couple of hundred of these messages for each of the clients
over a period of < 1 day.
Any reason for concern? It looks like one client structure is
clobbered/reassigned, and I've been assuming that this is so fast that
the AFS client doesn't notice.
