We are getting these kernel warning associated with the postmaster
process. The application is handling around 15000TPS It appears that
one of these messages is generated for each each transaction which fills
up the warn.log quite quickly.
I’m trying to understand what is causing the Tainted kernel messages.
the warning is at 'WARNING: at ../net/core/dst.c:287’.
I’ve found one link that indicates that this is ip6 related.
Is this accurate? And if these action resolve the error, is it more of
a bandaid then an actual fix?
As Andres already pointed out, this is most likely a kernel issue, not a
PostgreSQL one. The "tainted" has nothing to do with the cause, it's
just a way to inform users whether it's a clean kernel build, or if it
includes code not available in vanilla kernels etc. The "X" means there
are some SuSe-specific modules loaded, IIRC.
And yes, it seems IPv6 related, at least judging by the stack trace:
You should probably talk to SuSe or whoever supports that system.
