Every day I get an email from the
logwatch program on our company web server. The server is running CentOS 6 and uses Apache, MySQL and PHP to serve web pages. It is a dedicated piece of hardware (not a VPS) in a data centre in the UK. We have two USB drives attached to it which we backup to.
This morning (under the
Kernel Begin heading) I saw the following errors:
It looks to me like the errors are focused on the first USB drive (
/dev/sdc1). My questions are:
- Are these errors cause for concern?
- Do these errors indicate that the USB drive may be about to fail?
- What would be your recommended course of action?
Incase it will help someone to further diagnose the issue, here is a list of all hard drives attached to that server:
Any help or advice is gratefully received.
