locking at high CPU usage


I am running redhat9 on a box I built myself that will be used as a network storage system. While I have been stress testing it, the box seems to be running just fine except when I run setiathome which I typically run as test of how the system reacts under heavy processor load.

Running setiathome will cause the box to lock completely after it runs for serveral hours. The screen does not update, the mouse will not move, the box is not pingable on the network anymore. The only thing I can do is hit the reset button. I'm puzzled as to why this is happening and am puzzled as to how to troubleshoot further. Can anyone offer any pointers on how to troubleshoot this issue? My system info is below:

The processor is getting too hot. Make sure that you have seated the HSF correctly and that the case has sufficient air-flow.

You are right, thank you! HSF was/is correctly seated, but the box didn't have anywhere near enough airflow. It was an old Pentium 2 full tower case that I've ripped everything out of and updated to current innards. I thought I had enough fans, but the proc and MB heat sink were way too hot. I cut a hole in the side of the case and installed a 90cfm fan blowing directly on the heatsink and I have now run stress tests for two days straight with no problems.

This box is a Frankenstein, but now it's working great.

I have a similar problem...I'm using RH 8.0 and this server is being used for backup. This is a brand new server in quite a cool room. It locks itself , I presume with high CPU usage 'coz I cannot login nor do anything unless I reset the machine. I'm posting the sysinfo for my machine as well and was wondering if somebody out there could help me resolve this.

This has been going on for the past 1 month. The only change I've made is upgraded the RAM from 512Mb to 1024 Mb. Both the 512Mb mem modules are the same config. And I haven't done anything to the swap.. This lock up has been happening even before the memory increase..

Any help would be much appreciated

Here are some possibilities:

1) Bad RAM - the best way to test RAM is to compile the kernel over and over. This uses lots of ram and the compiler's tree walking seems to be good at causing faults.
You can also try http://www.memtest86.com/

2) A friend had the similar symptoms when he optimised his BIOS settings incorrectly.
Check your BIOS.

3) Is the system running X on the console? If yes - disable X by switching to run level 4 and see if it stabilises. Might be a bad X driver.

4) Bad SCSI/Network/etc driver. If you have uncommon hardware, then it might pay to do some searching at your distro vendor's site and google. Maybe your drivers are out of date. For example, at one stage one of the binary-only Intel network card drivers would hang systems - very low probability - and normally under high loads - but we had 450 servers, so we'd see this about once a month.

5) Faulty mainboard - my current system's original mainboad had a voltage regulation problem that cause crashes and eventually took out the CPU. Use cron to run lm_sensors to gather termperature and voltage stats and plot them - perhaps using rrd as your plotting tool.

6) Cable problems - check connections.
