DL580 G5 hang

We have a DL580G5 SLES 10 system running Oracle 10.2.0.4.0 64 bit with NetApp storage, for mysterious reason the whole OS will hang under high NFS IO.

The system is equiped with an Intel 10 Gigabit CX4 interface card. We have tested the HP hardware with the Smart Start CD. The HP hardware is good. What could be wrong? Could the 10 gig card be the cause? How can we test this?

Does anyone has seen the same issue we are seeing?

Yes! We have almost the same configuration (including the Intel NICs) and two of our servers have hung this way. All the lights are green, but I have to pull power to get it to reboot.

These are production servers, so we are not able to take them down for diagnostics - or firmware patches. However, we did have a chance to run diagnostics once and it came back clean.

D'oh! It looks like the same configuration because you're representing us. :) :(

Er, nevermind.

Re: DL580 G5 hang

What OS are you running on.
Have you checked performance collection tools like SAR (on linux/solaris), or checked system logs for any indications ?
