Symptoms

Pendsect logs non-errors with a 'warning' severity.

Impact

Unexpected log entries. When pendsect is executed and does not find any disk errors, it logs the following at the warning level: warning pendsect[21788]: pendsect: /dev/sdb no Pending Sectors detected. This is not an error. The message is posted at the incorrect severity level and does not indicate a problem with the BIG-IP system.

Conditions

This occurs when pendsect is executed.

Workaround

None needed. This is cosmetic.

Fix Information

Adjusted severity level of various logs generated by pendsect script, so that informational messages are not logged as warnings.
