Bug Description

Binary package hint: mdadm

In the man page it is documented that monitoring a raid0 device will result in wrong error message like this:

DeviceDisappeared event detected on md device /dev/md3, component device Wrong-Level

But they should better be suppressed for raid0.

---

No email reports are sended, yet if you use /sbin/mdadm --follow --scan -1 --syslog
your syslog will be flooded (on critical level!) with this irrelevant message.

As a workaround I suggest the attached filter example with the command line:
/sbin/mdadm --follow --scan -1 --program="filtered_syslog"
