Re: Crash dump analysis

Hi ,,

From the index file you will not be able to find out the crash reason,

Lock a case with HP , else you may analyse the crash with q4

Re: Crash dump analysis

Log a software case with HP would be a better option to findout the root cause.

Check /etc/shutdown.log, what it says?

the /etc/shutdownlog says:

Re: Crash dump analysis

Hi,

The q4 wont help you much - but you would be asked to do that, and give HP Response center the files from that analysis:

Here is q4 (from SEP's site)

The HP RC email may be different for you.
Best give them the details in advance, to avoid time | email delays.

>I am attaching q4 output.

You have a NaT consumption fault in tcp_rput. Time to make sure you have all of the recommended patches and then contact the Response Center.
You are also out of space on lvol2.

Re: Crash dump analysis

Probably you have an old patch level , expecially arpa patch (almost all old ARPA patches have warning)

Please update latest network patches including arpa streams and dependency.

That will give you the solution.

Check the latest IPF also.

If you want more analysis, you may need to contact HP, They will tell you what should be done.
