vhand hung ? crash dump available

I have an rx1620 with 4GB RAM running 11.31 which hangs regularly when under sustained memory consuming load. I can provide a crash dump if needed or grunge around in it with kwdb if needed.

Are there any patches that solve such a problem ?

Most of the processes are stuck like this :

And vhand is spinning on the CPU without freeing up physical memory:

Re: vhand hung ? crash dump available

You could try installing PHKL_37452 (if its not installed already). If the problem persists, raise a case HP support.

Re: vhand hung ? crash dump available

I suggest you either load the latest patch bundle, or open a case with your local HP Response Centre

Re: vhand hung ? crash dump available

Agreed -- PHKL_37452 is a likely fix (if, in fact vhand is spending all the time in GC paths which can happen under high User+UFC load on small systems -- that was one of the primary fixes in that patch).

If the problem still occurs with PHKL_37452 installed, contact support and have them contact the lab. If this is a new issue, we'll need/want to work it (and if not, we can see where things fit in schedules for other alternatives).

PHKL_37452 has fixed my problem. Thanks a lot to both Venkatesh and Don.
