Duplicate errpt entries

By default, AIX will avoid logging duplicate errpt entries. You can see the default settings using smitty errdemon, which will be set to checking duplicate entries within a 10000 milliseconds time interval (10 seconds). Also, the default duplicate error maximum is set to 1000, so after 1000 duplicates, an additional entry will be made, depending on which is reached earlier, the duplicate time interval of 10 seconds or the duplicate error maximum.
