Kernel panic on Apache restart

Screen appears when restarting the Apache server
Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2004-04-01 14:52:00 EST
This is specific to a machine? Is it reproducable on any other machines?
Comment 3 Jason Baron 2004-04-01 16:37:25 EST
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.
Comment 4 Mathieu Bernier 2004-04-02 02:13:30 EST
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.

We'll try to reproduce the kernel panic today and get more
informations on a screenshot.
Comment 6 Mathieu Bernier 2004-04-08 04:40:37 EDT
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
- Oracle iAS 9.0.3
- Oracle iFS

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.
Comment 7 Mathieu Bernier 2004-04-09 06:23:14 EDT
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 ?

Comment 8 Jason Baron 2004-04-09 07:23:37 EDT
i'm not sure-perhaps you can set up serial console to capture the full
panic text? 
Comment 9 Mathieu Bernier 2004-04-09 10:54:12 EDT
Well, no. I found the way to configure the console with a larger
resolution (1024x768).

I hope this will be enough to get all the message.

Currently, I'm trying to reproduce the Oops with this new configuration.
Comment 10 Jason Baron 2004-05-13 18:09:39 EDT
Any updates on this one? how many times have you seen the panic? Is it
still present on the latest updated kernel, e.40?
Comment 11 Jason Baron 2004-06-01 11:13:58 EDT
I'm really interested in the status of this bug. Any additional
updates or information? thanks.
Comment 12 Mathieu Bernier 2004-06-02 05:41:32 EDT
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 :


Comment 13 Suzanne Hillman 2005-04-11 12:02:29 EDT
Closing due to lack of additional information.
Comment 14 Suzanne Hillman 2005-04-11 12:03:14 EDT
Ehem. Lack of additional information due to upgrade, I mean.
