bad memory module
actually we r working on the servers remotely.......
my task is to troubleshoot the problems......
so,our task is to investigate why these kind of errors messages were generating continuously.
I got the problem like "Bad memory module"
some log files inside /var/log/messages were generating continuously...like as below
[root@cnlx100 ~]# cat /etc/issue
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)
Kernel \r on an \m
[root@cnlx100 ~]#tail /var/log/messages
Apr 15 10:24:04 cnlx100 kernel: EDAC k8 MC0: general bus error: participating processor(local node origin), time-out(no timeout) memory transaction type(generic read), mem or i/o(mem access), cache level(generic)
Apr 15 10:24:04 cnlx100 kernel: MC0: CE page 0x3c66, offset 0x1a0, grain 8, syndrome 0xd6b4, row 0, channel 0, label "": k8_edac
i think this is due to some h/w problem.
so please give me a solution how to solve this.
And is necessary to reconfigure the memory modele? If yes can u please give me the steps to reconfigure the memory module.
I suggest that you test the hardware. You can use 'memtest86'. But this would require the server to be taken down and launched locally. Run the test as long as you can or until errors out. If it's a bad cell or stick then replacement is the best option.
