Description Gian Paolo 2008-07-14 09:50:03 UTC
Hi, I have on my server ibm 3650  FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE and the proccess
that running are nagios-3.0.2, apache-2.2.8 and heartbeat-1.2.5_3;
random after some day machine becomes semi-dead, the ping respond but
any stack (ssh,http) don't work and heartbeat don't switch the
resources I can't loggon  and I must reboot. In the syslog there
isn't  any message for trobleshotting the problem. Any idea ? Sorry
for my english
Best Regards

I have exactly the same problem with 3 different servers running
7.0-RELEASE-p4 (problem happen with p3 too).

They start randomly hang during the last days.

SSH, FTP, WEB, etc don't respond but ICMP responds.

The servers come back only after a hard reboot.

When the server hangs, as I said I can't ssh or visit any website hosted
on this server, but I can use nmap and see that port 22,25,53,80 are all

So it seems the machine is still able to proces at least something, but
that it magically hangs.

As we discussed on IRC, it would be helpful if you can update to the
latest 7-STABLE version so that we can see whether the -RELEASE would also
have this problem and potentially see where this resides.

I upgrade 10 hours ago to the 7.1-PRERELEASE and the hangs start more

Some more details:

The 4 servers (yes I had the same problem on 4 different servers, all
AMD) hang lots of times before I could close all services but bind (so I
could csup) and then the hangs disappeared (or at least from what I can
tell in the 2 hours it took me to downgrade the kernel to 7.0-RELEASE
patch 4) for each server.

The same servers had an uptime of 3 months before they start hanging.

I think this problem happens when you upload something using PHP.
