Description brynn 1999-08-20 16:07:15 UTC
Testing a product that does a lot of ftp transfers  (about
200,000 files were transfered over a few days), with my
linux 2.2.10 SMP redhat 6.0  box acting as the server
crashed [kernel panic] my box

Here is the kernel message:

somebody lost a pointer somewhere.   In the ftp xferlog
shortly before the crash [5 seconds] there were many null's
placed in the xferlog, implying it was already trashed at
that point.   I will put more logs in the attached url.   I
have upgraded to version 2.5 but nothing I found implied
that any such bugs were fixed.

This is a kernel problem.
