Re: getty exiting due to excessive running time

Hi n2t, 

 

Greetings, 

I found a KB article matching these logs:

Jun 17 04:25:44.259 2011 igw01.la.re0 getty[3649]: %AUTH-3: getty exiting due to excessive running time
Jun 17 04:26:55.747 2011 igw01.la.re0 getty[3656]: %AUTH-3: getty exiting due to excessive running time

If the total CPU time spent by a process exceeds the limit set by the user using setrlimit for that process, kernel sends SIGXCPU signal to the process. The default action would be process termination.
The time limit is set to GETTY_TIMEOUT which by default  is 60 seconds and the signal handler for SIGXCPU in getty just displays the message and exits. The error messages will be logged.
If a large number of error messages are continuously logged, the issue can cause unexpected problems. 

 

Please refer to this KB :

Hope this helps. Smiley Happy
