Last updated March 4, latest version is 4. This bug report is a duplicate of: You are not directly subscribed to this bug’s notifications. I recommend you update the firmware of your RAID controller to the most current release The system would panic when deleting many logical volumes at one time.

postfix – HP DL G5 – Smart Array P – Linux hang with high load randomly – Server Fault

See the “st” lijux page for more details. In the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported controllers, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be. When load is high, there is almost no CPU usage top and no disk activity iostat.

I first suspected DDoS attacks, etc, added many fail2ban validations, external firewall TCP requests limitations, etc. I would suggest disabling hardware raid and setting up software raid or no raid at all until the p400 makes its way on the Linux Kernel, if it ever does.

It neither modifies bootloader grub or lilo.

HP Smart Array CCISS driver

I would speculate that they have something in common that is triggering this. If necessary, deb package will compile kernel as well.


To enable this feature of hpsa, the module parameter hpsa. Adding “nomodeset” to kernel command line works around the issue in Stretch. To build the source tarballs: Worked fine, needs bnx2 firmware. Change to this directory, and execute: I’m not sure why but to fix it: I was thinking upgrading to latest version with the HP utility CD but I’ll try to upgrade to this version tonight. Is write caching enabled on your RAID controller – I can’t remember if the s support it or not, if not then you can fairly easily overload your disks with logging lots of small writes to different files when it’s in write-through mode.

These won’t work with very old kernels such as the 2. There was also a small gain in initial write speeds, but other write tests actually lost a little speed.

There is not much logging, I mean normal If you can find a way to update firmware, this will likely resolve the issue. Attached is a screenshot showing the kernel panic, and below is a link to a YouTube video of the whole boot process, a video recording from ILO.

If you’ve h; using cciss already on these controllers, it is not recommended that you attempt to upgrade your running system to switch from cciss to hpsa unless you have a very good reason to do so and know what you are doing.


Tuning a HP Smart Array P400 with Linux – why tuning really matters…

X tarballs Last updated November 01,latest version is 3. Ubuntu Bionic Beaver development branch Release: This h driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated.

The server has also a 2-port Pi Smart Array controller integrated on the mainboard. This allows newer hardware to work with older drivers. I’ve been able to upgrade P gp 7. Hardware RAID logical volumes are invisible to OS, physical disks are exposed to OS, Debian could be installed but has to be handled with great care upon post-installation and when upgrading!

Fixed wrong usage of a pointer for sysfs symlink. However, if you don’t mind being unsupported and the fact that the system is 4 generations and old, the server can still function. Sign up using Email and Password.

Some development versions 2. In order to be able to post messages on the Overclock. After, I verified firmwares versions including Pupgraded all to latest versions, the problem still occurs.
