Core crashing... routes but little else...
« on: October 31, 2008, 10:07:18 pm »
In recent days (with a clean build) I have been noticing in the mornings sometimes the core isn't quiet working.

Usually, my PC on the internal network cannot browse the Internet. I can route through the core no problem, but it seems to have stopped forwarding DNS requests. And i cannot ssh in.

This morning I may have caught it just before it got into this state as DNS wasn't being forwarded but I was able to ssh in. However, when I did this the shell started behaving strangely and then started generating Seg Fault errors for every command I issued, then died.

When I looked in messages there was obviously some significant problem last night that effectively time bombed the system for when I started using it this morning.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

The kernel is certainly unhappy about something. I would suspect hardware, most likely memory. Take the machine apart and give it a good cleaning if its been awhile, then start removing or swapping out nonessential hardware (extra stick of ram, storage drives, etc). Make sure the cpu heatsink/fan is still working properly (fan running slow, problem with thermal paste).
