The new hardware has been stable in apoc so far. Almost 48 hours solid, which is a fairly big jump from rebooting every 12-16 hours. It’s also a far cry from “proven stable” in my mind though. I think I’m going to start running some tests on the hardware I pulled out though. First round is going to be a couple passes of memtest. If that clears then I guess I’ll be getting a pair of hard drives and trying to mimic the OS install.
From there I hope that the same behavior will present itself. Then I can try the tweaks one by one, disable hyperthreading, disable usb, disable apic, etc. Until we find out what solves the problem. Then I can get this board back in apoc. I’d really much prefer to have the full 3gb in the VM host.
I’ve got all the MD units renamed now, so instead of /dev/md0 consisting of /dev/sda5 and /dev/sdb5 those units are in/dev/md5 and so forth. Does it make a difference to anyone but me? No not really. But I like having things consistent.
