Description Jeff Burke 2007-04-14 01:25:48 UTC
Description of problem:
 On system ibm-alishan.rhts.boston.redhat.com while running the RHTS testsuite
/kernel/misc/autotest results in the following error: 
 BUG: time warp detected!
 prev > now, 1053bb44a957f108 > 1053bb44676070e6:
 = 1106739234 delta, on CPU#0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
 50% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:
Here is a link to the kernel

Here is information on how to setup a local system to use the RHTS devel

You can down load the tests from here:

This test it written for the RHTS environment. So you can install the
RHTS devel package following the directions from here:
then install the test and do a make run.

Or if you do _not_ want to install the RHTS devel stuff comment out the
# Include a global make rules file
include /usr/share/rhts/lib/rhts-make.include

# Source the common test script helpers
. /usr/bin/rhts_environment.sh

then do a make run.
Actual results:

Comment 1 Tim Burke 2007-05-18 15:42:12 UTC
Notes from internal con-call today:

- IBM Athlon based system, 500mb mem
- error when running a diversity of kernel stress tests - not exactly sure which
precise test induced it
- repeatable, every time on this one system
- QA took the system for a standard RHEL issue so we can't reproduce immediately.

Recommendation: Ask IBM if they are seeing this and if they have any ideas.

Comment 3 john stultz 2007-05-18 18:48:37 UTC
I know Ingo had a variant of the paranoid timekeeping check included for awhile.
Although I've not been convinced that it didn't throw false positives. 

Few questions: 
1) What type of IBM system is this?
2) Can it be reproduced w/ the current RHEL5-rt kernel?
3) Can you attach dmesg output on the box?

Few questions: 
1) What type of IBM system is this?
    	IBM eServer x3105 -[434774Z]-
2) Can it be reproduced w/ the current RHEL5-rt kernel?
        System is currently in use by QE for RHEL3-U9 testing. I was hoping that
IBM could try and reproduce it on similar hardware. Once that hardware becomes
available again I will try it.
3) Can you attach dmesg output on the box?
        I don't have a dmesg output I have the /var/log/messages from that
failure. I will attach it to the BZ.
