Odd Console Error Message - 'Long Held Lock Dump'

I found this in my log this afternoon.   Looks kinda scary.   Makes me wonder what is happening to my DAOS.


  1. That could be a bunch of things. Were you running a resync at the time? That can hold the catalog locked for a long time. Any other unusual activity?

  2. Looks like it is rebuilding. During the rebuilt, it sometimes needs exclusive access to daoscat.nsf hence the lockers that you see.
