Description Christian Rose 2002-09-15 17:30:39 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
We've experienced system hangs (box responds to pings but not to logins or
anything that requires filesystem access) on a production nfs server on three
occasions since the middle of June. On each of the three occasions, the problem
seems to have been triggered when there is heavy disk access, such as during the
nightly crond runs. At the time in June, the server was running the 2.4.18-4
kernel. Right now and at the time of the last two hangs, it was using the
2.4.18-10 kernel, so we've also experienced this problem with errata kernels.
Whenever the system hangs this way, it displays this information on VT0:

VFS: dqputduplicate(): Duplicated dquot put without duplicate reference.

The only way to get the system back to a working state at this point is through
a hard reset (the machine does not respond to a three finger salute).

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Don't know how to reproduce it. User and group quota over nfs should probably be
enabled though to be able to reproduce this, as well as heavy load. We've only
used Red Hat Linux 7.3 machines as nfs clients.

Additional info:

The hard drive used in the server is an IBM DeskStar 60GXP 7200rpm 61.5 GB.

I think aranging a serial console and hitting <alt><sysrq>T when
the box hangs may be helpful.

Comment 6 Dennixx 2003-03-07 12:12:33 UTC
It seems we have the same problems here. We're running 7.3 with the latest
patches on a Compaq Proliant ML370. Also we experience hangs, and have quite
frequently quota messages:

VFS: dqputduplicate(): Duplicated dquot put without duplicate reference.
VFS: Adding dquot with dq_count 9 to dispose list.

Also, from time to time commands like 'quotaoff -avug' seems to hang in an
uninterruptable state:

root     16900  0.0  0.1  1668  608 pts/1    D    11:59   0:00 quotaoff -avug

Comment 7 Stephen Tweedie 2004-09-10 12:00:56 UTC
Can this be reproduced on a current kernel?

Comment 8 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:39:55 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
