Your broadcom is one of the problem chips, you can probably see the workarounds in the driver. So I would not rule out a problem with the ethernet controller. If you have money to burn on this then install an Intel pci express or 64 bit pci card and disable the onboard ethernet chip and see what happens.
However what you really need to do at this time is get your seemingly-random panics to become repeatable. We start with the assumption that this is a hardware problem. PC's in general have 4 areas of hardware that cause problems: ethernet disk IO memory cpu sometimes video is a problem but you can check for this by simply not logging into the console and doing all your access over the network. What you need to do now is go into the ports directories and build some of the stress-testing utilities then run them. Start by running a disk stresser, see if that causes it to panic. Next run a network stresser, see if that causes a panic, next run a cpu stresser, etc.etc. I think you get the idea here. What we are trying to do is find a program that can cause the system to panic on demand, that is a program that really mostly does only 1 thing, either disk, network, memory, etc. Once you got that then you can start hardware substitution on the affected area (if possible) Ted ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jeremy Kister" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "Ted Mittelstaedt" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Cc: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Sunday, June 25, 2006 10:16 PM Subject: Re: Crashing with HP/Compaq DL360 G3 [paging kernel developer] > On 6/25/2006 5:51 PM, Ted Mittelstaedt wrote: > > Please post a dmesg output. > > two of them have now crashed: > > http://jeremy.kister.net/tmp/unix32.dmesg > http://jeremy.kister.net/tmp/unix35.dmesg > > > Thanks for your interest > > -- > > Jeremy Kister > http://jeremy.kister.net./ > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
