RHEL5.1 PPC: ls, find,cd freeze on single ext3 mount point
Performing an "ls", "cd", "find" on a one of our mounted directories causes the "ls", "cd", "find" process to hang (becomes defunct process).
LVM is used but all other LV's in the same VG are fine. Multipath reports all paths are up. A "pvscan" detects all disks correctly.
No errors evident in dmesg or /var/log/messages (default logging enabled).
Inode count is low (<10). This probelm is very intermittent.
Any ideas where to start trouble shooting. Hopefully I can perform a bit more details diags next time around.
This problem is intermittent and acorss different mount points/servers. A restart of the server is the only way I know how to resolve.
Call with Red Hat (including a sosreport) has come back with nothing.
