Subjectpage allocation failure in 2.6.25.5
Date
Hi,
I'm encountering page allocation failures on kernel 2.6.25.5 (as
well as on 2.6.25 under similar conditions.) The machine is x86-64 4
CPUs (XEON E5410), 8GB memory, running OpenSUSE 10.3. The kernel was
built with gcc 4.2.1. The machine has four GigE links bonded together
and is a part of pvfs2 file server, and a 3ware 16-port raid
controller fully populated with 1TB disks.

Under heavy pvfs2 loads, sometimes an page allocation fails
apparently while in handling a receive from the net. It is visible on
a client side as a communication error with the server, other than
that, the kernel on the server seems unaffected. When net load drops,
the system continues to function normally.

Below is a relevant part of the dmesg.

Please CC me directly with any questions you might have as I do not
subscribe to the list.
Thanks,
--andrew
