<BlackDark_>
I got a strange problem several, I'd like to shared it with you guys
10:02
severals times one of my terms had the video frozen
10:02
I was able to ssh on the box, to do some top or ps
10:03
I looks like xorg has crashed, any idea was I could do to prevent such thing happening ?
10:03
my terms are the ltsp 1220, running ltsp 5 festy
10:11
<sbalneav>
Were you running firefox at the time?
10:12
<BlackDark_>
yes
10:12
user was running too evince with a large pdf file
10:13
each term has a 256 megs swap, with ndb
10:13
<sbalneav>
Yeah. Probably Evince ran the x server out of ram.
10:13
<BlackDark_>
kernel at the time of the crashs 2.6.20-15-386
10:13
changed it for 2.6.20-16-386
10:14
<sbalneav>
We've released, not a fix, but a workaround that will just kill the app, and not the xserver itself, in Gutsy.
10:14
<BlackDark_>
the terms has teh vesa driver
10:14
<sbalneav>
basically, we set a ulimit on the ram the xorg can consume.
10:14
<BlackDark_>
ok
10:15
by app you mean the user application, not xorg
10:15
<sbalneav>
right.
10:15
So, what will happen is, if evince or firefox tries to grab too much xorg pixmap space, it'll just die, as opposed to make the xorg die.
10:16
<BlackDark_>
ok
10:16
that;s a good wrok around
10:18
an another workaround would to add some memory in the terminals
10:18
<sbalneav>
That would work too.
10:18
<BlackDark_>
what do you think of creating the nbd for the swap, in a ramdisk on the server ?
10:18
<sbalneav>
ugh
10:19
why use up valuable server ram for swap?
10:19
It won't make it any faster
10:19
your limiting speed is the network.
10:19
<BlackDark_>
true
10:19
<sbalneav>
both ram AND disk are faster than the network, so it won't improve things.
10:19
<BlackDark_>
it's not a good idea
10:20
I'm thinking of the xorg crash
10:20
the system has plenty of swap, 256M
10:21
but swaping memory means that the system will put the unused memory on disk to free up some ram
10:21
<sbalneav>
Heading up for breakfast.
10:22
<BlackDark_>
enjoy
