MegaCli64 Other Error Count

I have a Intel SRCSATAWB raid controller which is based on a LSI chip set installed in a Ubuntu enviorment.  The Intel management software is in supported in my environment so I have opted to use MegaCli to admin/monitor the controller, for the most part it works well but I am receiving an Other Error Count error and am unsure if there is a greater issue and have been unable to exactly determine what an Other Error Count is. Is it write delays sync issues or something else.  Intel will not assist as I am in an unsupported environment (the LSI sister card is supported). Below is output from MegaCli64 -PDList -aALL.

SAS disks have 30 - 50 types of errors.  They govern recovered/unrecovered read & write errors i.e, media errors. The other class is obviously non-media errors.    This would include invalid CDBs and transport type errors.    These non-media errors are generally normal and no big deal.  Don't sweat 'm.   If you had millions then be concerned.
