    What did the host cpu on PCIe read completion abort (ERR_NONFATAL)?

    Community Member

      Hello to all.


      What did the host cpu (Intel-Core-i-Serie) do when a PCIe read completion abort occur (no advanced error reporting is enabled)?


      In my imagination: If the host cpu initiates a pci-memory-space-read and if the response was a read completion abort, the root complex translates the completion abort in ERR_NONFATAL. But what did the host cpu in this case? Did an general fault exception or an machine check exception occur?


      Thank you.
