Subject: dbench has intermittent hang on 2.6.0-test1-ac2
Date: Thu, 24 Jul 2003 23:43:52 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20030725034352.GA10261@rushmore> (raw)

dbench 64 hung during a run using 2.6.0-test1-ac2 on ext3. One
of the dbench processes never created the clients/clientsXX
directory.

The parent dbench-2.0 process continues to update the throughput
measurement and the MB/sec slowly drops.

I saw the same behavior on a dbench 32 run with 2.6.0-test1-ac1
on reiserfs.

ps -ef|grep dbenc[h]
root     12266 11460  0 21:24 pts/0    00:00:00 ./dbench 64
root     12320 12266  0 21:24 pts/0    00:00:00 ./dbench 64

It isn't highly reproduceable.  Of 28 different dbench runs
on 2.6.0-test1-ac[12], only 2 have done this.

Uniprocessor x86 running RedHat 7.3 + patches.

Sysrq T for the dbench processes shows:
