Ubuntu 11.10 + kernel 3.0.x unstable under Amazon EC2


(Colin Surprenant) #1

Hi,

Just a quick note to say that I have experienced a lot of kernel
panics on all nodes of a cluster installed with Ubuntu 11.10 + kernel
3.0.x running under Amazon EC2 (large instance).

Kernels 3.0.0-12, 3.0.0-13 and 3.0.0-14 all panic'ed under high
ElasticSearch load. I am using ES 0.18.5 with OpenJDK java version
"1.6.0_23" Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre)
(6b23~pre11-0ubuntu1.11.10)

I "downgraded" to kernel 2.6.38-8 and so far so good.

Just curious.
Have you tried to use the latest JDK from Sun?
It seems to me that this problem is also kind of related to JVM
implementation.

It depends if it really relates to JVM, it might relate to the
virtualization layer (which were responsible for the 10.04 freeze of death
problem)... . In any case, thanks for sharing it Colin!

No, I haven't tried Sun JDK with 11.10 + kernel 3.0.x but I doubt it
is JVM related. I more looks like a Xen + kernel issue. All panics
occurred in period of "high" load when cluster was recovering from a
node restart.
