Error message when starting *ERROR* Failed to send host log messa

When i start both virtualboxes I get the following:
/some numbers/ [sda] Incomplete mode parameter data
/some numbers/ Assuming drive cache. write through
/dev/sda1: clean numbers/numbers files, numbers/numbers blocks
/some numbers/ drm:vmw_host_log vmgfx ERROR Failed to send host log messa
/some numbers/ drm:vmw_host_log vmgfx ERROR Failed to send host log messa

(when i say numbers it doesnt spell the word numbers but 13452345 or whatever it is i assumed it’s not important)
And then it flashes some more error text but i can’t screencapture it before it disapears.
Both VM’s start and work fine. I just want to know if this error message is common or do i need to do something and fix it?
Have a good day.

I can help with this;
This error is directly related to the virtualbox graphics adapter–specifically the “vmsvga” choice. This is a virtual device that emulates vmware’s graphics.
The log message: Failed to send host log message, is harmless. I get it as well. No functions are affected in the machine. For reference, the host is using Virtualbox 6.1.8 although the message appeared on 6.1.6 as well. Virtualbox does know about it and it is nothing to be concerned about.
