No, because the messages are in the kernel log. The kernel itself does not print timestamps, because that's silly. Try doing this: 1) Edit /etc/syslog.conf and enable /var/log/all.log, 2) touch /var/log/all.log 3) chown root:wheel /var/log/all.log 4) chmod 600 /var/log/all.log 5) killall -HUP syslogd Then wait until the next event, and examine /var/log/all.log, which will contain timestamps. Also, are you seeing any "watchdog timeout" events on em0 as well? If so, please read the "Network devices" section of my Wiki regarding what this problem could be (specific to certain models of Intel 82573 NIC): http://wiki.freebsd.org/JeremyChadwick/Commonly_reported_issues -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
