Lots of entries in the log files after synchroizing the clock

Hi NetApp community.

 

We noticied that some our clock were out of sync, and after synchronizing, we set up a crontab to run the command "set storageArray time" every night.

 

# crontab -l

(...)

*   3 * * * /maint/netapp/netapp_sync_clock.sh

 

But now we see in the "major-event-log.txt"

# grep -e 'Date/Time:' -e 'Description:' major-event-log.txt  | head
Date/Time: 6/21/18 4:01:07 AM
Description: Controller return status/function call for requested operation
Date/Time: 6/21/18 4:01:07 AM
Description: Synchronize controller clock
Date/Time: 6/21/18 4:00:49 AM
Description: Controller return status/function call for requested operation
Date/Time: 6/21/18 4:00:49 AM
Description: Synchronize controller clock

(...)

 

# grep -e 'Date/Time:' -e 'Description:' major-event-log.txt  | wc -l
16384

 

Why this happens? Is this normal?

 

Thanks for your attention.

Hi there,

 

This may be due to a BURT detailed in https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1005736/loc/en_US#__highlight

 

Suggested response is to upgrade Santricity OS
