I was doing tons of network stuff on my laptop yesterday testing
my VPN against a Solaris machine. According to ppstats, I was mainting
between 200 and 270k/s. The bottleneck was my laptop's CPU, but that's a
Today, I start the VPN, do a couple things over it, and run my
websplat application and the machine reboots.
Actually, I just figured out the difference while I was typing
this... websplat by default tries to make as many connections as it can
to a web server and issue queries. I was limiting it to two yesterday for
my tests. Today, I forgot that option... After it gets going a little,
the machine completely freezes up and reboots. No core or anything. Is
there any possible way to figure out what it's doing here? I can't think
that this is a good behavior for PPP. My kernel is dated 1/12/1999.
Would a new kernel build help me (better question would be, would
it hurt me since I can't build userland on this machine)?
SA, beyond.com My girlfriend asked me which one I like better.
