Subjectalarm() does not work/ping only sends one packet on SMP machine (2.2.16)
Hi!

I've got a problem on a production database server (SuSE Linux 7.0,
Kernel 2.2.16 SMP). On this machine, a ping to any network (also ping
localhost) does only send one packet. However, a ping -l 10 sends
exactly 11 packets. Thus, the problem seems not to be the network, but
another part of the system. I've tracked the problem down to the alarm()
function. The following program runs forever:

---
#include <unistd.h>

int main()
{
alarm( 1 );

while( 1 );
}
---

On any other machine, the program receives an SIGALRM, but on this
particular machine, nothing happens.


Question: What might be the cause for this?

Then, I think that the following is strange: There are two uptime
counters accessible through /proc/uptime. These counters show a
difference of about 28 hours! The difference is still growing, as the
following skript shows:

--
#!/bin/bash
while true; do =

sleep 2
echo -n `date`
cat /proc/uptime | awk '{FS=3D" ";printf " - %02d:%02d:%02d\n",
int(($1-$2)/3600), int(($1-$2)/60)%60, int(($1-$2)%60);}'
done
--

Output: =

Question: Is this normal?
