I have what looks like a hardware problem with an Intel 1U server,
which I am using mainly as a mysql database server for some of my
bigger website clients.
The server went down last week with a badly corrupted file system.
After spending a day trying to fix the file system, we gave up and
did a fresh install of FreeBSD, PF, and mysql, using our daily
backups to restore the database. It all seemed to work fine until I
switched the websites from the temporary database server that I had
been using, onto the restored server.
The database ran well for about 2 minutes, then the server crashed
again. The filesystem was again corrupted so badly that we could not
even log in to look at the logs.
We've reinstalled FreeBSD again, just to be able to SSH into the box.
It looks like there is probably a hardware problem, like a bad power
supply or overheating CPU that fails when the load of the database is
Problem is, I have no idea how to determine which bits are failing.
Can anyone suggest a favorite book or website that focuses on how to
troubleshoot hardware issues?
