The messages below have been found in /var/adm/message frequently. but I'm not sure what's wrong.

Feb  3 12:12:26 sfcsolar01 px: [ID 100033]
I've searched but could not find definite answer.
Do you know why this kind of message happen frequently? is this Solaris bug?
The following information will be helpful :

    Apply the latest patchs to your system, you need to try  at least patch 138324-02.
    I would apply the Recommended Patch Clusters.
    also have a look at:;jsessionid=bc9a3ef420016d4bd234bfc78d7?bug_id=6368155

    looks like the kernal having trouble with  px0 device, it could be a device driver bug, can you read the README file
    for patch 138324-02.
    I would apply the Recommended Patch Clusters, you need to keep your system up-to-date when possible.
