Description eloranta 1999-06-28 07:05:10 UTC
Linux (Kernel-2.2.5-22) mounts a directory from SGI (IRIX
6.4). Enter the NFS mounted directory (on linux) that
contains many files (in my case 3822). Do ls or echo *
there. The machine almost deadlocks and all memory
gets reserved -> ls and echo die saying out of memory.

Kernel 2.0.36 does not have this problem.


mount command on Linux says:
/dev/hda1 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
yyy.yyy.jyu.fi:/usr/people on /usr/people type nfs
(rw,addr=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)

(with xxx and yyy obviously filled in)
