Description Henri Hennebert 2016-02-17 16:11:14 UTC
When running security/tripwire (compute checksum on all the files), the system is under heavy i/o, the system hangup.

If I compile a kernel with /usr/src/sys/kern/vfs_subr.c at revision 291757
all return to normal.

see also the stable mailing list:


PS also in 10.3-BETA2.

Please see https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2016-February/084180.html .

As suggested by marius@, I have upgrade the affected box to FreeBSD 10.3-BETA2 #0 r295834M with the proposed patch.

So far so good, and I have reactivated the periodic scripts.

But meanwhile I had been playing with ZFS / ARC tuning, and this might have some impacts.

Henri, could you please try this patch and report back?

I try the patch and it is OK as I report on the ML

  In preparation for 10.3-RELEASE, temporarily revert the MFC of r291244
  done as part of r292895 on stable/10 as that change causes hangs with
  ZFS and the cause on at least amd64 so far not understood.
