Description of problem:
I Have a Dual Processor Compaq Proliant with 4GB of RAM. Initially I installed
the standard 2.4.2 Redhat kernel but was experiencing problems with my
application (HP OpenMail) in that
1. Segmentation Faults were being generated
2. the messages file contained ldt allocation failed
3. I was limited to 900-1000 users accessing the system.
Using up2date I have applied most of the latest patches apart from
I also upgraded the kernel to 2.4.9-34.
Now when more than 1200 users try to access the application the system freezes.
I have to do a cold restart will the resulting damage to the user/application
I have tried adding more memory (Now have 6GB) and have increased the swap
files to 4 each about 1.8 GB to no avail. I am sure that once the system runs
out of memory (free plus Cache) and starts to use the SWAP that the system
freezes but it will also freeze when noone is on the system !
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Leave the system for a few hours
Actual Results: System will FREEZE
i assigned to correct component
