SubjectKernel panic: can't push onto full stack
Hello,

I have been getting this error message quite frequently on 3 similarly
configured machines. After the kernel panics, the machine is still
pingable and seems to almost establish tcp connections, but
just hangs. All services running on the machines no longer function.
What exactly does this error mean? The machines have plenty of ram and
never use the swap space due to the large amount of ram.

Hardware in use:
Tyan dual processor motherboard (1836DLU) w/ 2 pentium II 400 processors
1 machine has 256 megs of PC100 SDRAM
1 machine has 256 megs of ECC PC100 SDRAM
1 machine has 512 megs of ECC PC100 SDRAM
All 3 machines are SCSI with IBM 4.5gig drives
3com 905b cards

Software in use:
kernel 2.2.2
apache 1.3.4 w/ fast cgi
MySQL 3.22.16gamma

Feb 28 00:39:22 web1 kernel: Kernel panic: can't push onto full stack
Feb 28 05:43:20 web2 kernel: Kernel panic: can't push onto full stack
Feb 28 07:45:09 web1 kernel: Kernel panic: can't push onto full stack

Thanks for your help!
