It may or may not be reliable. For MCE decoding to work accurately, the software (read: kernel) needs to have full support for the processor model and revision in question. mcelog simply tries to decode the output that the kernel spits out and provide a more "user-friendly" explanation. That isn't as simple as just modifying some table of supported CPUs; it involves reading Intel documentation and implementing what can be figured out through that. VMware has a small KB about this, to give you some insight into the complexity: http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1005184 There are some capabilities of MCA that are "semi-universal" across series of CPUs, so sometimes those can be decoded (mostly) accurately, but other times such isn't the case. Sometimes there are certain MCEs that have be ignored by the kernel (i.e. the kernel MCE support has to be updated to reflect changes in MCEs for that newer model of processor). The version of mcelog available in ports is extremely old, and the amount of work to upgrade it to the latest Linux mcelog (1.08) I imagine would be quite large: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/utils/cpu/mce/mcelog.git The existing FreeBSD port involves a large number of patches written by John Baldwin, and whether or not those can be correctly backported to newer mcelog releases is unknown. I really need to renounce my maintainer flag of that port and let someone else take care of it. > b) Is it worth to contact the dealer or wait until it is broken > completely? To me, the above message indicates that one of the CPU cores is damaged/misbehaving. I cannot determine if it's referring to L1, L2, or L3 cache, but I don't see any clear indicator of that (possibly due to the aforementioned explanation I gave about accuracy). However, I will point you to this thread, which may indicate that the model of CPU in question (or series or models of Intel CPUs) have MCEs that happen which are considered "normal" and are thus not being decoded correctly: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-questions/2014-January/255873.html I would suggest providing relevant dmesg lines about your exact processor in this system and possibly ask for help from either John Baldwin or someone on freebsd-hackers@. I myself cannot help with this. The dmesg lines I'm referring to, by the way, look like this (all of them matter, particularly the first two): CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz (2833.59-MHz K8-class CPU) Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x10677 Family = 0x6 Model = 0x17 Stepping = 7 Features=0xbfebfbff<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,PAE,MCE,CX8,APIC,SEP,MTRR,PGE,MCA,CMOV,PAT,PSE36,CLFLUSH,DTS,ACPI,MMX,FXSR,SSE,SSE2,SS,HTT,TM,PBE> Features2=0x8e3fd<SSE3,DTES64,MON,DS_CPL,VMX,SMX,EST,TM2,SSSE3,CX16,xTPR,PDCM,SSE4.1> AMD Features=0x20100800<SYSCALL,NX,LM> AMD Features2=0x1<LAHF> TSC: P-state invariant, performance statistics The OP of that freebsd-questions thread should have provided this but didn't (instead just says "Intel i3-4310" -- this isn't precise enough), so whether or not you two are using the same CPU is unknown. There simply could be "new MCEs" or changes to the MCA that Intel implemented in some newer models of Core iX that aren't being handled correctly by the kernel (i.e. misreporting or mis-decoding).
