The /var/crash partition on a node is at or near capacity.

Administrator action

The purpose of the /var/crash partition is to preserve data about failed processes and unplanned restarts to enable analysis of those events. This event is usually the result of a process or service stopping unexpectedly and producing a core file, which is a type of log file. Core files record all of the system events when the system terminates unexpectedly. Depending on the state of the process when the problem occurred, these core files can be very large.

If the event persists, gather logs, and then contact EMC Isilon Technical Support for additional troubleshooting. For instructions, see Gathering cluster logs.
