Escondido, Calif. My opinions are just that, and no more.
System: NetBSD pulsar.resun.com 1.5.2 NetBSD 1.5.2 (resun) #1: Fri Aug 16 01:18:37 PDT 2002 email@example.com:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/resun i386
When running a SW system that uses Perl 5.6 & Perl 5.0, two mysql DBs,
one of which has tables that have grown to over 1.2GB, the system
becomes unstable. The same system had been running for 18 months w/o
The HW was completely rebuilt, using different MB manufacturers. New
memory modules were used. Some networking cards were shared. There is
a tlp onboard ethernet.
The system would sometime hang, w/o the ability to get a crash dump.
Sometimes, the dumpdev would be reported as not ready.
I suspect that this is specific to my configuration, as there have
been no other reports of the problem. If I reenable the SW subsystem,
the system generally won't survive for more than an hour before
Not running the SW subsystem has worked for a month. :-(
I've tried migrating to 1.6, and have experienced similar problems,
without running the SW system. I can't even get a one-time-through
compile of a kernel, without having segfaults or other problems in the
compilation. The compilation will eventually produce a working kernel,
if I push through the errors.
