Hey All, I have just had my 2nd HD crash in a year - different machine, different type of drive etc - the only consistency is the OS and the installed software.
It looks like this is some kind of overflow???? This problem seems to start after about a month and is indicated by there being fragments of the kernel config data in the daily kernel log messages. I asked about that on this list but people seemed to think it was just some kind of log rotation. I caught the machine a couple of months ago with nearly all the swap used (800meg out of 1 gig) and rebooted which kept the machine happy. I recently noticed the kernel log messages had the config fragments again and was going to to a reboot - but alas too late. The machine is down, HD is damaged and we are trying to get data off the drive... This is exactly the problem that occurred 6 months ago. That time I put it down to lousy overheated hosting but now I don't have that excuse. Has anyone seen this before? Does FreeBSD have to be re-booted every month for safety? Should I give up and use Linux?
