Hello.  I've recently faced a rather odd issue that I've never seen
before.  I bought a new server (specs below), and I loaded it up with
FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE (I know, I know, not for a production environment,
but this is a personal server).  Now, whenever I get about 30
simultaneous connections, the box just locks hard.  I tested all the
hardware components (CPU, Memory, HD, NIC, etc.) and even bought new
ones just to make sure and all end up with the same result.  I can never
keep a decent uptime (never went past 2 days so far).  As soon as I get
a mediocre http load (30 simul. connections), the box just locks hard. 
I built a debug kernel, I tried everything imaginable, and I have not
found a solution whatsoever.  Everyone seems to be stumped by this.  I
tried FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE, 4.7-STABLE, 5.0-RELEASE and 5.0-CURRENT on
this box.  All give me the same result.  I checked everywhere for
relevant logs to explain what is occuring, but had no such luck.  This
is truly the million dollar question for me right now, because I have no
idea why it would lock under such a petty load.  I'm not sure what to do
to fix this issue, I've tried many different areas for support and
haven't come up with anything as I stated earlier.  I'm not overclocking
or anything if that's what you're wondering.  If anyone could assist me
in any way shape or form to get this working, I would appreciate it very
very much.  Also, if you e-mail back, I'm not subscribed to the lists,
so could you please CC it to me.  In the past 4 hours, it has locked
hard about 3 times because of a 28-34 connection load.
