I'm not an expert for those error messages but I guess it unfortunately a
hardware error, isn't it? Did you check dmesg output when this happened?
That was the dmesg output - not much goes to logs, as they're on /var,
which was the affected filesystem. Things I've seen suggest that this
error can certainly be caused by a hardware problem, but the disk is a
hardware RAID5 array on an ICP controller, which maintains it's own
hardware log of disk problems. I've seen no sign of any problems with
the array, and the controller doesn't show anything that could have
presented an error to the OS layer, so I'm inclined to doubt the
"hardware error" theory at the moment.
ICP has a nice tool for managing their Controllers from commandline.
icpcon it is called, there are some monitoring options like
View Hard Disk Info
These are all empty and nothing unusual to find in there?
