Question on Swapping

2010-08-01 Thread Doug Hardie
I have a question about what I am seeing on several servers.  These are 4 core 
machines with more than the needed memory.  Load is never above .5 and memory 
usually shows over half free.  I have never seen it even close to the limit 
(including buffers).  Basically these are lightly used servers.  However, top 
often shows after a few weeks of uptime that some of the unused gettys are 
swapped out.  I didn't really expect this as lack of memory is not an issue.  
Is there something in FreeBSD 7 and 8 that causes a process thats idle for very 
log times to get swapped out?  I haven't seen anything like that in the various 
documentation files, but it sure looks like thats the 
case.___

Re: Installing 8.1-RELEASE from the memstick

2010-08-01 Thread Thomas Mueller
 When installing from the 8.1-RELEASE memstick, what is the correct
 selection for Installation Media?  I'm not finding any mention of
 memstick in the Handbook.

I went to the handbook online, and in 
Section 2.8, Figure 2.27. Choose Installation Media
Option 9 USB is Install from a USB Drive.
That seems to cover your situation.

You can also install from a DOS partition or from an existing filesystem, or
from floppy disk set or FTP server, or from a FreeBSD CD or DVD.

When I had to choose insallation media source, I couldn't choose USB drive
nor CD (media not found or so).

AFAIK, it was broken on 7.2, but the good news is that FTP install seems to
work pretty well.

Setting Debug flag in /etc/make.conf

2010-08-01 Thread Jerry
I have been having problems with several different programs lately.
Would there be any serious drawback to simply setting: WITH_DEBUG= 
in the /etc/make.conf file to force everything I build/rebuild to be
built with debug symbols? I am assuming that I can simply place that
flag in the make.conf file. Do I have to also give it a value; i.e =1
or =yes also?

 The laptop has a wireless toggle button, which is supposed
 to enable/disable wireless. There is also an LED, which
 lights on when wireless is enabled, and goes off
 when wireless is off. Well, at least this is what
 should happen.
 
 On boot the LED is on.
 
 If I press the button to disable wireless, the LED goes
 off and in dmesg I see:
 
 ugen0.2: Broadcom Corp at usbus0 (disconnected)
 
 When I switch wireless back on again I see in dmesg:
 
 ugen0.2: Broadcom Corp at usbus0
 Does this mean that wireless sits on USB bus?

I don't think so. I think this is some kind of management interface? I get the
same messages when I switch off my 5100 AGN.
 
 Does this give me a clue about how to debug
 the problem further?

It puzzles me that it is not seen in the pciconf output. Could it be that the
wireless is disabled in the laptop's BIOS?

USB drive would probably mean a USB drive that's not the boot drive, 
maybe with a more common file system like FAT32 or NTFS.  That menu 
entry may need rewording.


An extracted CD image isn't a CD any more, so that's not it either.

File System is probably the right choice when the installation files 
are in a directory on the USB stick (untested by me, though).

Typical Network Performance

I have a 100 mbps (12,207 KiB/s) home LAN in full-duplex.  A 1 MiB file 
transfers at 146.7 KiB/s via wput.  The same file transfers at 91.34 
KiB/s via samba.  That's less than 1% of available transfer rate.  Seems 
like my transfers are slow.  I do better than that when installing via

Does the FTP performance compared to available bandwidth seem right?  Is 
the relative performance of samba to FTP right?  I read a couple quick

Those figures do  seem a little low.  Some stuff to check:

Are transfers in one direction a lot faster than transfers in the  
other?  If so, the machines and the network switch may not all be  
agreeing on the duplex mode.  Auto-negotiation sometimes fails and can  
lead to a lot of silent collisions, slowing things down dramatically.


How about the disk you're transferring from? Is it limiting the speed?  
Those figures would be fairly normal for a USB 1.0 drive, for example.


Are you sure all the machines involved are operating at 100 mbps?   
I've seen them silently fall back to 10 when there's a bad cable  
involved.

If by RELENG_8, you mean 8.0 (or pre-8.1), there are a number
of patches for the client side krpc. They can be found at:

ps: lock up can mean many things. The more specific you can
be w.r.t. the behaviour, the more likely it can be resolved.
For example:
- No more access to the subtree under the mount point is
  possible until the client is rebooted. When a ps axlH
  one process that was accessing a file in the mount point
  is shown with WCHAN rpclock and STAT DL.
vs
- All access to the mount point stops for about 1minute
  and then recovers.

Also, showing what mount options are being used by the
client and whether or not rpc.lockd and rpc.statd are
running can also be useful.
And if you can look at the net ttraffic with wireshark
when it is locked up and see if any NFS traffic is
happening can also be useful.

 Does the FTP performance compared to available bandwidth seem right?  Is the 
 relative performance of samba to FTP right?  I read a couple quick links on 
 the net which said, It's complicated.

Gigabit ethernet from a 2.8 GHz P4 to or from MacPro I am only limited by disk

Re: Setting Debug flag in /etc/make.conf

 I have been having problems with several different programs lately.
 Would there be any serious drawback to simply setting: WITH_DEBUG= 

You'd lose `-O2' compiler-specific optimization. If you want to retain
it use DEBUG_FLAGS, e.g.

  DEBUG_FLAGS = -ggdb
  CFLAGS += ${DEBUG_FLAGS}

Ports that build using bsdmake don't really need the second line as well
as buildworld.

 in the /etc/make.conf file to force everything I build/rebuild to be
 built with debug symbols? I am assuming that I can simply place that
 flag in the make.conf file. Do I have to also give it a value; i.e =1
 or =yes also?

Besides symbols some ports enable compile-time debugging and disable
optimization using WITH_DEBUG ifdef that may impact performance.

mrtg-2.16.2_6,1 does not run with perl-5.12.1_1

2010-08-01 Thread Jon Theil Nielsen
Hi list

After upgrading perl according to UPDATING, I cannot use mrtg anymore. The
error message is:

Bareword P_DETACH not allowed while strict subs in use at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12.1/MRTG_lib.pm line 1172.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/bin/mrtg line 89.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/mrtg line 89.

I filled a PR on this but haven't seen any answers/solutions:
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=148914

Am I the only one having this problem?

If the port needs upgrading (as suggested in my PR), but this does not
happen, how can I fix it myself?

Cheers,
Jon

 A pitchfork has 2 tines a trident (which is what Beastie carries) has

Actually, pitchforks typically have four.  Two would be a fauchard or
military fork -- a weapon of war.  Tridents, meanwhile, are better suited
to fishing, while pitchforks are designed to sling hay on a farm.  None
of the above have anything to do with devils, per se, though pitchforks
are occasionally portrayed in devilish images for some reason.  I'd think
there wouldn't be much hay surviving in a lake of fire, though.


 
 Interestingly, the trident seems to appear in a number of religions.
 
 Shiva carries one:
 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Shiva_cropped.jpg
 
 as does Poseidon IIRC.
 
 So maybe Beastie is a disabled Hindu! (missing 2 arms).

Not all Hindu deities have that many arms, y'know.  Ayyappa, Rama, and
Krishna come to mind.  Maybe he's just among those Hindu deities.

Hi,

 I'd think there wouldn't be much hay surviving in a lake of fire,
 though.

If you go fishing in this lake of fire, can you use a trident instead
of a pitchfork?

Did you try realtime monitoring your network interface?

# route -n get remoteip
interface: yourinterface

# netstat -I yourinterface -w 1

Do you see errors on the interface?

# netstat -I yourinterface

Another trick to eliminate disk io from the equation is to use nc:

machine1 freebsd:
# nc -o -l 2000  /dev/null

machine2:
# dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=50 | nc machine1 2000

Re: IPv6 rtadv on FreeBSD 8.1?

2010-08-01 Thread Carl Johnson
Carl Johnson ca...@peak.org writes:

 I have running versions of 7.3 and 8.0, so I tried experimenting with
 8.1 in VirtualBox, but I ran into a couple of problems.  I have an 8.0
 system that is running a IPv6 tunnel to sixxs.net, and it is running
 rtadvd to act as the gatway for my network.  On the 8.1 system I
 enabled IPv6 in rc.conf, but it is not picking up the advertised
 address.  I can add it manually, and have put it in rc.local for now,
 but it seems it should work automatically as my others do.  I noticed
 that the ifconfig output shows a new line that is not in 8.0:
 nd6 options=3PERFORMNUD,ACCEPT_RTADV

 Is there something that has changed in 8.1 that I have to enable, or
 is there a problem with 8.1?  IPv6 is working to the extent that it
 did assign a link-local address, and I can use that address as long as
 I specify the interface.  My configuration is the same, and I didn't
 have to enable anything on the others to get the global address
 assigned automatically.

This is a followup to note that it does work when I run it on native
hardware instead of under VirtualBox.  My version of VirtualBox is an
old one (2.1.4) running under Linux, so maybe it has some bugs. I had
installed FreeBSD under VirtualBox, but installed to a primary
partition specifically so that I could later boot directly into it.
The odd thing is that I have a similar FreeBSD 7.3 installation which
does work properly under VirtualBox.

Now if I could just figure out why gnus doesn't work right under emacs
I could finish migrating from Linux to FreeBSD.

Sometimes my FreeBSD8.0-p4 machine does an automatic reboot after
panic: page fault. (Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode)
It's at random times.
What in general can be the cause of that?
Is it always due to hardware memory errors?

What else can be a cause, how to find out ?
I have output in /var/crash but don't understand very much of it

Hi Malcolm,

I don't use linux-firefox but have previously encountered problems
printing via lpd from Acrobat Reader which use the linux compatibility
sub-system.

You might find the thread containing this message useful for a little
background info:

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-emulation/2007-April/003469.html

It looks as though the linux_base package now includes the lp script
suggested in that message:

%cat /usr/compat/linux/usr/bin/lp
#!/bin/sh -
exec /usr/bin/lpr $@
%pkg_which /usr/compat/linux/usr/bin/lp
linux_base-fc-4_15

For some time now I have been happily printing via lpd from Acrobat
Reader to a network-connected postscript printer by selecting the
Custom printer option in Acrobat Reader's print dialogue using its
default /usr/bin/lp command.

I can't run the native firefox that I normally use at the moment so
cannot check what options firefox offers in its print dialogue but I
hope this info gives you some kind of lead to help you resolve the
problem.


Wayne
