All I can say is that the machine that runs rtorrent itself doesn't crash (on me), no matter how much traffic it gets. BUT the FreeBSD router that NATs this traffic via pf does crash... and just as you've observed: more frequently lately than before. A crash once or twice a week is common now, while it was once every 4 to 6 months last year... That router also acts as a mail- and webserver, so it is not only dedicated to routing. Maybe that's significant. I don't know what it is, but it seems to happen more often when there's disk activity *on the router* than when the disks are mostly idle. Perhaps disk and net subsystems concurrently using a non-locked resource and killing each other? Have you tried to run rtorrent and the router on two different FreeBSD machines? Does it lock the router, or does it crash the rtorrent box only, or both? -cpghost. -- Cordula's Web. http://www.cordula.ws/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
