 Subject:  Second total freeze of 1.2b3
 Date:  Sun, 20 Feb 2005 14:54:37 +0100
Hi everybody,

I am sorry to report my second total freeze of 1.2b3 on a Soekris
net4801. I had to powercycle the Soekris, no web-access possible, even
the serial console was dead.

My first freeze was after about 7 days uptime, I then rebooted the
Soekris every 2 days, then got tired of that, thought it was a one
time glitch but today after 11 days of uptime same thing happened
again.

The network is heavily utilized 24/7, I have about 500 GB traffic per
month on the WAN interface. I also sent all Soekris logs to the
syslogd of my Linux machine, but unfortunately nothing seems to be
wrong, the m0n0wall log-entries just stop, shortly after that "eth0 is
down", etc.

Here's /var/log/messages of the Linux machine (extracts),
router.oche.de is the Soekris running m0n0wall 1.2b3:

(lots of other ipmon messages, at 09:14 last m0n0wall log)

Feb 20 09:14:17 router.oche.de ipmon[82]: 09:14:17.081520 sis0 @0:19 b
                192.168.100.111,63999 -> 210.50.96.215,4201 PR tcp len 20 40 -AF IN

Feb 20 09:35:42 localhost vdr[4303]: closing SVDRP connection
Feb 20 10:01:01 localhost -- MARK --

(some more localhost messages, then DHCP lease expired and then this):

Feb 20 11:41:03 localhost kernel: eth0: network connection down

That's all I can provide, I know that's nothing to go on, I only
wanted to report the freeze again. All I can say: after too (?) long
uptime my Soekris 4801 freezes, it does not happen with reboots every
other day, the hardware seems to be okay.

Kind regards   Frederick
