'primary i-cache: !?!Syndrome'???

Hi SGI,

what does the following message I picked up from /usr/adm/SYSLOG
mean ?

Dec 11 13:19:25 2A:zonk unix:     ERROR MSG:  No ecc data error found in primary cacheline
Dec 11 13:19:25 2A:zonk unix:     primary i-cache: |?!Syndrome at addr 0xafee868 normal!
Dec 11 13:19:25 2A:zonk unix:     ERROR MSG:  No ecc data error found in primary cacheline
Dec 11 13:19:25 2A:zonk unix:     primary i-cache: |?!Syndrome at addr 0x83ee868 normal!

The machine is an Indy with R4600PC, running IRIX 5.2:

1 100 MHZ IP22 Processor
FPU: MIPS R4610 Floating Point Chip Revision: 0.0
CPU: MIPS R4600 Processor Chip Revision: 1.0
On-board serial ports: 2
On-board bi-directional parallel port
Data cache size: 16 Kbytes
Instruction cache size: 16 Kbytes
Main memory size: 64 Mbytes
etc..

Is there anything wrong with the hardware ?

Thanks,

It means you have a bad cpu module, or that the cpu module isn't
screwed down correctly, although this is less likely.

I assume you really have 5.2 for Indy R4600, not vanilla 5.2.

1. Problem with NFS file caching after 'fsync'

Hi there,

We are using a shared file across a distributed network for
process scheduling. It appears that after the file is locked,
read, modified, written to, fsynced and then unlocked, there
is a small delay of 1second during which any read occuring
from another machine will get the old file before modification.

This sort of defeats the purpose of the file lock and I thought
that 'fsync'ing would flush any NFS caches before it returned.

Does anyone know why the cache would be persisting for that
long? We are doing this under Irix5.3 on Indys on a standard
NFS filesystem (No CacheFS and no Automounting).

Is there a workaround for this (apart from putting an inherent
delay into the filesharing protocol?)

Thanks,

Stuart.
