Hello everyone. I ran into a Kernel Panic last night on one of my machines,
and am curious as to what may have caused this:
The message on the console was:
panic: uvm_mapent_alloc: out of static map entries, check MAX_KMAPENT
Stoppped in pid 15.1 (pagedaemon) at netbsd:cpu_Debugger+0x4
The kernel is NetBSD 2.0.1 on i386.
First off, I'm trying to understand exactly what MAX_KMAPENT is. Secondly I
am curious as to how I may work to prevent this issue in the future.
The system in particular handles many busy tasks such as SMTP and Squid. I
am assuming one of these must have used more resources than normal.
Thanks for any insight,
