FWIW, I am not seeing the backtrace with 2.6.20-21.el5rt kernel. However,
irqbalance still crashes:

kernel: irqbalance[3757]: segfault at 00005555557cc8f0 rip 0000555555555cdb rsp
00007fff96ae3f80 error 6

Here is an strace output:

Comment 4 Tim Burke 2007-04-18 22:13:18 EDT
Hi Gozen - we are intending to use the new irqbalance which Neil Horman has
cooked up for RHEL5.1.  Does that version crash?
Comment 5 Neil Horman 2007-04-19 11:44:50 EDT
the dmesg output in comment 1 looks unrelated to irqbalance (Its a kernel
problem, perhaps triggered by some irqbalance behavior).  It probably warrants a
separate bugzilla. 

As for the irqbalance crash, It looks like an old problem that was since fixed.
 If you run the latest version of irqbalance (irqbalance-0.55-3.el5, which I
built yesterday), I expect this problem will clear up.  If not, please capture a
core dump of the process and attach it here.  I'll happily dig into it.  Thanks!
Comment 6 Gurhan Ozen 2007-04-19 12:20:04 EDT
Neil, 
Thanks a lot. Yes, comment#1 doesn't happen with the latest RT kernel.

As for the newer irqbalance package, it does work! Though, I have to admit, the
version numbers kind of threw me off, since what i originally had was
irqbalance-1.13-9.el5 .

Comment 7 Neil Horman 2007-04-19 13:01:28 EDT
yeah, we have a version rev slated for irqbalance in 5.1.  Its out of the
ordinary, but it just wasn't ready in time for GA.
