Hello Everybody,
Quick question when you get a chance.
We have Ubunt10 10.10 installed in one of our servers.
We see this error that occurs every 20sec.
We don't see any issues on the server yet but we want to know before something happens. is there other places I can check that can give us a clue on what's going on?

Thank you for your future help,
btanseco
