dasprovider respawning

Hi

I have a new 11.31 machine (rx2660)

Users have complained about not being able to log in over xmas. I investigated and found there were no more available processes. (nproc=4200)

It seems that the offending software is "dasprovider" It has been respawing. OR stm has been respawning and kicking of the dasprovider processes.

# ps -ef | grep dasprovider | wc -l
2689

ALSO

# ps -ef | grep "/usr/sbin/stm/ui/bin/stm -c" | wc -l
1347

I managed to increase nproc to 4800 to allow investigations. So before I reboot to get rid of these processes is there anything I should look for/check?

Thanks
Mark

I've killed all of the dasprovider and stm processes. They are slowly respawning.

7 new stm and 12 dasprovider processes started in the last hour.

Re: dasprovider respawning

It is the dasprovider that is kicking off the stm processes.

This error was possibly due to an incorrect entry in the hosts file.

Incorrect host file entry.
