Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245602
kernel panic after only a few file transfers
Last modified: 2014-06-02 09:02:47 EDT
Description of problem:
After enabling cachefilesd, the server kernel panics after only a few files are
read via nfs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure cachefilesd to cache to /var/fscache on an install with standard RH
2. start cachefilesd
3. start to pull files over nfs for serving with httpd.
The entire system crashes, we do not see any record left in the logs of why.
This does not happen when cachefilesd is not enabled.
The system should at worst not kernel panic.
on further investigation, this appears to happen only if the cache is
invalidated by an updated (or newly created) file.
Would it be possible to get an oops back trace?
This has been NEEDINFO for 8 months. It may be a duplicate of
BZ#279431 - kernel panic when using rhel5.1 and fscache
but we need a stack trace to know, or to otherwise make any progress on this.
Will you be able to test this again?
