Storage system panics

If your storage system has a serious problem, such as a problem with the hardware or a severe bug in the system software, it might panic.

When a system panics, it performs the following actions:
  • The system core is dumped into a core file, which is placed in /etc/crash.
  • A panic message is output to the console and to /etc/messages.
  • The storage system reboots.

The panic message contains important information that can help you and technical support determine what happened and how you can prevent the panic from happening in the future.
