Hey, I am using a custom TX1 carrier board that is constantly printing this message to syslog: WARNING - Battery Over Current Limit hit, please refer to the Jetson Power management application note
It only prints the message when put under high loads. When the board is idle, the message doesn’t appear. We do have batteries in our device, but the message appears when they are both plugged in and unplugged.
I have found the section of the device tree file, tegra210-jetson-tx1-p2597-2180-a02-devkit-24x7.dts, that this warning message comes from, which is sysedp_reactive_capping@3 (very last section).
I looked up sysedp_reactive_capping and it refers to some battery management system that I am not familiar with.
Does anyone know the details about this section of the dts file?
Is there any downside to removing this section of the dts file?
I tried removing it and didn’t notice any differences aside from the message disappearing, but I imagine it is a bad idea to remove something from here without fully understanding what it’s doing.
