There is this error displayed in the Flowmon appliance console: "blk_update_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0"


Product: Flowmon

Question/Problem Description:

This error appears when the system (can be any Linux based system) tries to poll for supported devices to protect in the background and incidentally polls the floppy disk drive.

Steps to Reproduce: It happens randomly
Error Message: blk_update_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 mceclip1.png
Defect Number:  
Enhancement Number:  
Cause: Since the floppy device is not supported, the device does not properly handle the poll request and throws an error.
Resolution: This error can simply be ignored, it doesn't affect the appliance in any way
