i got a rly nasty problem here.
i got a amd64 server running ubuntu hardy LTS with latest kernel
2.6.24-22-xen and xen 3.2 in Domain-0.
The server "freezes" randomly, by freezing i mean there is no log in
syslog or any other log, nothing onscreen, no kernel panic, just freeze.
i cannot reproduce the system crash as it happens randomly sometime
after a few days. only way to start the crash by force is if i try to
get a backup of the machine via bacula-fd (a backup client). As this is
probably a heavy I/O task maybe thats the cause of the problem.
i tried all xen versions from 3.0 to 3.2
i tried several (xen-)kernel back from 2.6.19 to 2.6.24 but the problem
the system freeze doesnt occur if i boot up the machine in regular way
- not running in Xen Dom-0, so i guess it hast to be some kind of xen
bug or misconfiguration. the raid controller i use is pretty standard,
its even in debian and ubuntu kernel by default, so i guess a lot of ppl
are using it and it shall not cause the problem.
RAID bus controller: 3ware Inc 7xxx/8xxx-series PATA/SATA-RAID (rev 01)
any hints ? help appreciated
