System: NetBSD colwyn.zhadum.org.uk 3.1 NetBSD 3.1 (COLWYN) #0: Sat Oct 28 19:44:15 BST 2006 firstname.lastname@example.org:/export/scratch/tron/build.20336a/sys/compile/COLWYN i386
I couldn't log in via SSH into my server this morning. When I had a look
at the console I found these error messages:
Feb 10 05:01:45 colwyn amd: Retrying memory allocation
Feb 10 05:01:47 colwyn last message repeated 2 times
Feb 10 05:01:48 colwyn amd: Out of memory
Feb 10 05:01:51 colwyn /netbsd: uid 0, pid 465, command amd, on /: file system full
I logged in as "root" on the console and tried to restart "amd". The system
became unresponsible afterwards.
BTW: the message about "/" being full is bogus. My root filesystem isn't full.
Configure amd(8) on a NetBSD 3.1 system, use it heavily and wait a few
days (or weeks).
