No, nothing to be concerned about, it is just for information. The 
controller battery goes through a discharging/charging cycle a regular 
interval. Perhaps, it is better that there is no power supply shortage 
when the battery is discharging, but that's all. I think this cycle is a 
test to insure taht the battery is still in good shape.

But Dell OMSA issue a warning when this happens.
