syslog fills the system hard disk in minutes. This is what logs shows:

Dec  6 14:03:01 ubuntu kernel: [   18.515567] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5:   device [8086:9d15] error status/mask=00000001/00002000
Dec  6 14:03:01 ubuntu kernel: [   18.515569] pcieport 0000:00:1c.5:    [ 0] Receiver Error         (First)

These are three new Asus F541U Laptops with Ubuntu 16 Dual Boot Windows 10. All of them experience the same issue with different grades of severity.

The system works good besides that. Everything is updated.

Is there a proper way to solve it? should I just ignore it and try to avoid the lines being output in the first place? how ?

I read some similar post where the solutions are to unmount or blacklist the culprit (pcieport - ID00e5 ?) or restrict the directory size but not sure about this.

I'm currently working by using:

for i in /var/log/*; do cat /dev/null > $i; done

all the time...

As described in the launchpad bug report, you need to add pci=noaer to your kernel command line.

Summary, taken from the above bug report:

  1. Edit /etc/default/grub. Change the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT into

     GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pci=noaer"
    
  2. Run sudo update-grub.

  3. Reboot.

I recommend that you reboot first, without making the above modifications, and rather than let Grub auto-boot, edit the boot specification; edit the line containing quiet and splash by adding (a space and) pci=noaer.

If the machine works fine if booted like that, and the syslog is no longer spammed, you can safely make the above edits.

I found a bug-report trianged also to ubuntu xenial. Try workaround from there

pci=noaer as bootoption.

Too slow again :D
