This is on a relatively new Dell dualcore with 4G of ram running up to
date stable. I'm not on site so I have no idea what might be provoking
these crashes. In fact in many years of running FreeBSD I've not seen
something just happen like this. It is a simi-production machine that
cvsups daily and builds and installs a new world and kernel. Ports are
updated about once a week and haven't seen any issues previously. It
has been running 24/7 since new, about 8 months.
3 files were generated info, bounds and vmcore. The info file follows:
Dump header from device /dev/mfid0s1b
Architecture Version: 2
Dump Length: 341225472B (325 MB)
Dumptime: Wed Jun 11 12:34:24 2008
Magic: FreeBSD Kernel Dump
Version String: FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #258: Tue Jun 10 05:54:42 CDT 2008
Panic String: page fault
Dump Parity: 2395754794
Dump Status: good
the vmcore is about 300M so I'm not attaching it;) I could put it on
line at a moments notice. I think that what I need is probably a crash
course on debugging a crash and I really don't know where to start since
after over 10 years with freebsd I've never needed it. Any help,
suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
See the developers' handbook chapter on kernel debugging.
However, panics that "suddenly" start happening frequently on a system
that has been stable for a while with no OS or workload changes made,
are usually due to the hardware starting to fail.
