Mapping Linux kernel ATA errors to a device

E-mail Print

I found it quite difficult to map Linux kernel ATA warnings to a particular device. These article gives some insights.

I have a dying drive in my system and I'm getting Linux kernel warnings like those ones:

[ 3180.294013] ata6: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
[ 3180.316290] ata6.00: configured for UDMA/33
[ 3180.316294] ata6: EH complete
[ 3180.547232] ata6: exception Emask 0x50 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x90800 action 0xe frozen
[ 3180.547234] ata6: irq_stat 0x00400000, PHY RDY changed
[ 3180.547238] ata6: SError: { HostInt PHYRdyChg 10B8B }
[ 3180.547244] ata6: hard resetting link
[ 3182.698012] ata6: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
[ 3182.736664] ata6.00: configured for UDMA/33
[ 3182.736667] ata6: EH complete
[ 3182.864164] ata6.00: exception Emask 0x50 SAct 0x1 SErr 0x90800 action 0xe frozen
[ 3182.864167] ata6.00: irq_stat 0x00400000, PHY RDY changed
[ 3182.864170] ata6: SError: { HostInt PHYRdyChg 10B8B }
[ 3182.864173] ata6.00: failed command: READ FPDMA QUEUED
[ 3182.864179] ata6.00: cmd 60/cutout/00:00:02:00:00/40 tag 0 ncq 4096 in
[ 3182.864181]          res 40/cutout/00:00:02:00:00/40 Emask 0x50 (ATA bus error)
[ 3182.864183] ata6.00: status: { DRDY }
[ 3182.864189] ata6: hard resetting link
To figure out who is ata6 I had to look at my drives in the /sys file-system:
dirk@topo ~ $ ls -l /sys/block/sd{a,b,c,d}
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr  9 01:24 /sys/block/sda -> ../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host0/target0:0:0/0:0:0:0/block/sda
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr  9 01:24 /sys/block/sdb -> ../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0/block/sdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr  9 01:24 /sys/block/sdc -> ../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host4/target4:0:0/4:0:0:0/block/sdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Apr  9 01:24 /sys/block/sdd -> ../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host5/target5:0:0/5:0:0:0/block/sdd

On PCI bus 1, PCI device 00:1f.2 is my SATA controller, a Intel Corporation 82801HB (ICH8) 4 port SATA AHCI Controller (rev 02). It provides 4 hosts to each of which I have attached a disk.

To get that ID, Instead of looking into the target structure, we're looking into the scsi_host structure. It has a directory for the host and in it a file unique_id. That's the ID appended to ata.

So for each of the hosts above I can display the ID like this:

dirk@topo ~ $ for host in 0 1 4 5; do echo -n host${host}:; cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host${host}/scsi_host/host${host}/unique_id; done

So going back to where we came, ata6 is host5, which hosts sdd.

If your just starting to try to tackle premature ejaculation, the last thing that you need are a whole bunch of techniques in your mind that will only confuse you and make things worse
for you. Pills hardly ever deliver on their promises, while creams and sprays numb the penis a whole lot that it's apparent
you'll go longer, but that's because you won. Diesels
are great for short trips because their ignition is not affected by
