I haven’t encountered this issue on my devkit running DRIVE OS 6.0.6. To assist you further, could you please provide more details on how to reproduce this error?

@VickNV this is happening right after boot up. Any specific logs that we should take or test we should do to help figure this out?

Please help check what’s the 1087 task. Also, please try if power cycling the devkit helps with this issue. Thanks.

logs from lsof, this is the task that is filling up the syslog

Have you tried reflashing DRIVE OS 6.0.6?

Is this still an issue?

@VickNV
Thanks for the suggestion but reflashing the Dev Kit is out of scope currently for us. Is there anything else that we can try? is there a way to stop the NvFsiCom process from being executed? we are not using it anyway. Thanks.

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.
Thanks

Could you please provide some background information about the steps taken before encountering this issue?
