Description of problem:
kernel panic while restarting Apache
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
very often on this system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Restart Apache service
Kernel panic, see picture
Created attachment 98922 [details]
Kernel panic on Apache restart
Screen appears when restarting the Apache server
This is specific to a machine? Is it reproducable on any other machines?
hmm, i really appreciate the screen shot, but its missing the
beginning of the panic, which has very valuable info. is it in the
/var/log/messages file? Any other information would be helpful, i
don't have much to go on at this point. thanks.
Unfortunately, the server on which we had the kernel panic is one of
the most used in our company. So, we didn't let it out a long time.
That's why we don't have any other informations. But we'll look at
other screenshots (we did many) and if we get the informations you
asked I'll send you.
Here is a list of peripherals of the two systems on which we had the
kernel panic :

We'll try to reproduce the kernel panic today and get more
informations on a screenshot.
We're always trying to get more debug messages from the kernel panic.
We can now reproduce the panic during a test. We use those softwares:
- Oracle Database 9i 188.8.131.52
- Oracle iAS 9.0.3
- Oracle iFS 184.108.40.206
There is a Tomcat server on the system which is running our web
We can reproduce the panic while running one of our application JSP
which is sending many requests to the iFS server.
All those servers are running on the same machine.
Now we are trying to get more messages from the kernel panic itself.
Now we're still working on the bug.
We wanted to know if there is a way to have a console larger than
80x25 in order to get more informations on the screen when the kernel
panic appears ?
i'm not sure-perhaps you can set up serial console to capture the full
Well, no. I found the way to configure the console with a larger
I hope this will be enough to get all the message.
Currently, I'm trying to reproduce the Oops with this new configuration.
Any updates on this one? how many times have you seen the panic? Is it
still present on the latest updated kernel, e.40?
I'm really interested in the status of this bug. Any additional
updates or information? thanks.
We don't have any additional updates because we upgraded our servers
to the e40 kernel. But another bug is open for this one at :
Closing due to lack of additional information.
Ehem. Lack of additional information due to upgrade, I mean.
