i just discovered a nice thing about this old problem with our dying xmit logic
on the SGEC adapters. I just installed my RS/6000 and configured NIS on it, as
my VAX also acts as NIS server. And it was about 10 minutes later... my VAX
crashed again due to a big lack of network capabilities :)
After booting, i got lots of these messages on my console:
Jul 17 23:08:09 nereus /netbsd: ze0: xmit logic died, resetting...
After logging in as root, the things got a bit more interesting, as this
Jul 17 23:31:21 nereus rpcbind: connect from 192.168.177.68 to getport/addr(ypserv)
Jul 17 23:31:26 nereus /netbsd: ze0: xmit logic died, resetting...
Jul 17 23:31:26 nereus rpcbind: connect from 192.168.177.68 to getport/addr(ypserv)
Jul 17 23:31:32 nereus /netbsd: ze0: xmit logic died, resetting...
You feel what i want to say? Every NIS request (don't know why it asks in 5
second intervals...) results in one of those evil messages, which lead to a
complete SGEC crash after a while. And now we continue:
nereus# ./rpcbind stop
This can keep this state for a very long time... no more xmit logic illness.
Could this help someone to get things a bit clearer in this problem? Or is it
even solved yet? (My kernel is some days older :)
Ok, the kernel version:
NetBSD nereus.unixiron.org 1.5W NetBSD 1.5W (GENERIC) #0: Tue Jun 5 11:01:54 CEST 2001 email@example.com:/usr/src/syssrc/sys/arch/vax/compile/GENERIC vax
If nobody knows a solution, how about a PR about this? I think, this really
_IS_ a problem, as my VAX has uptimes between some hours and 40 days, depending
on network traffic... I never really wanted to reboot it :(
