Dear Daniel, I have moved two disks to motherboard controller, cvsuped sources to 7.0-STABLE and recompiled kernel and world. gmirrored disks (RAID-1). Server worked good for about 6 hours, and than again, interrupt storm detected on "irq22:"; throttling interrupt source
gans# vmstat -i interrupt total rate irq1: atkbd0 3 0 irq9: acpi0 1 0 irq16: ohci0 1 0 irq17: ohci1 ohci3 1 0 irq18: ohci2 ohci4 1 0 irq22: atapci0 1195017654 55266 cpu0: timer 43244319 1999 cpu1: timer 43244059 1999 Total 1281506039 59265 last pid: 75968; load averages: 2.54, 2.57, 2.60 up 0+06:01:20 20:20:15 292 processes: 1 running, 290 sleeping, 1 zombie CPU: 21.8% user, 0.0% nice, 12.9% system, 0.6% interrupt, 64.7% idle Mem: 1033M Active, 435M Inact, 379M Wired, 51M Cache, 210M Buf, 37M Free Swap: 4128M Total, 296M Used, 3832M Free, 7% Inuse Maybe there is a way not to move from hetzner? No additional devices are attached to motherboard. I remember that server worked on 6.2-STABLE without these storms, but there were not so much processes.
