Block bitmap differences

what should I be looking for? In /var/log I grep'ed for ext and fs (case 
insensitively) in all syslog, messages and kern.log files. I found 
nothing which indicated an error to me. Just occasional mount/umount 
messages and the like.

Well, to be exact: I did find some error messages from the time when we 
had hardware issues on one machine. But nothing since these were 
resolved two weeks ago. e2fsck was happy then.

Thanks and regards,
