No – those other hotfixes solve other issues. The links you provide contain descriptions of the issues they fix.

CTX137168 mentions


In addition, this hotfix also includes the following previously released hotfixes.

     CTX135596 – Hotfix XS61E003 - For XenServer 6.1.0

     CTX136674 – Hotfix XS61E012 - For XenServer 6.1.0

Are those also needed with xcp 1.6.10  to solve the rrdd issues ?

It looks like you're using the Performance Monitoring Supplemental Pack.

"Failed to process plugin: xcp-rrdd-xenpm" looks like a known issue. (The problem is that xcp-rrdd doesn't cope with metrics payloads greater than 16KiB.)

This will not affect operation at all -- it merely means that you won't see any metrics about the time your server's CPUs spend in C- and P-states.

If my guess about the cause of the issue is correct, and you are feeling brave, you could attempt to fix this by applying a XenServer hotfix (XS61E017, available from http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX137168) to your XCP host. But I don't know the details on how to do this -- I'm sure someone else on this list could help you if you want to try this.

I am using xcp 1.6 on our IBM server.

My /var/log/messages is full of the following error. Please let me know what is it and how to fix it.
Is it going to affect the operation? We are planing to go live soon.
