I am running a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.1 (Maipo) on Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5690 @ 3.47GHz

I keep getting this error in abrt-watch-log.

The process abrt-watch-log takes strings to watch for and then runs a command. So what you're seeing as an error is just the strings to look for in /var/log/messages, which if found, is then sent to /usr/bin/abrt-dump-oops.

$ man abrt-watch-log:

       abrt-watch-log - Watch log file and run command when it grows or is replaced

       abrt-watch-log [-vs] [-F STR] ... FILE PROG [ARGS]
  • Did you mean that the abrt-watch-log is OK and we have to look into /var/log/messages to find the real error?
