(e100?) Kernel hang while running Cyclone with moderate load
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:18:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Kernel hang while running Cyclone (http://www.highwinds-
System unresponsive. Physical reset required.
If the system is configured to handle more than a few feeds and
network traffic goes beyond 40mbit/s the system will crash within 10
seconds of starting Cyclone. Fiddled with multiple hardware including:
Intel STL2 mobo with dual 1ghz-p3, mobo has intel 100 ethernet
Supermicro Superserver 6013P-8 with dual 2,8 Xeon's, w/ & wo/ HT,
mobo has dual intel copper gige
Storage as 5x IBM 36gb 10k SCSI (IC35L036UCD210-0, rev S5BS) on an
external u160 box or in internal slots of Intel SC5000 case.
Megaraid Elite 1600 running JBOD or RAID5
Adaptec 7902 w/ & wo/ 2005S ZCR running JBOD or RAID5
Two channel Symbios 896-based u2w-card running JBOD
Intel dual port 1000MT gige PCI-X
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL3 U1, update to current
2. Get Cyclone, configure more than a few feeds
3. Start Cyclone
Cyclone keeps pumping news and the system keeps running
Currently running Arjan's 2.6.3-2.1.213smp on STL2 mobo with Symbios,
disks in the external case. Connectivity with internal e100. Crashes
every few days and spews errors continuously.

Syslog messages while running 2.6.3-2.1.213smp
Oh yes, tried ext3 with defaults and reiserfs, no difference.

Semi-working 2.6-system crashing with 2.4
I booted the system to 2.4.21-9.0.1.ELsmp.
The hardware is now:
Intel STL2 mobo with onboard e100. OS-drives connected to the onboard
SCSI. Symbios896 handling the news spool.
Well I booted to 2.4.21-9.ELsmp instead it seems. More crash output
available if needed, can be generated at will.
I dont really see this is a dpt_i2o problem.
I've been informed that Highwind's assistance with this is required so
I'll try pushing them to approach Redhat for certifying their stuff
Works fine on RHEL4.
