Check your RAM. <>

Check your BIOS settings. Try running the system with the
failsafe settings if your BIOS has that.

If all else fails put the debug options into the kernel,
add a serial console, and see if you can break into ddb.

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.
