Re: IO lockups and ext3 readonly filecorruption on RHEL4 (pre a U4)

Has anyone been seeing IO lockup problems on EL4?

not using RHEL here, but...

A semi-busy system will suddenly go into some kind of IO la-la land where
nothing can be written to disk for >1hour.

ok, so ext3 will remount the fs to RO. this would happen if a panic() occurs? is there anything related in the logs? (if /var is RO too, try to setup a loghost).

Then when the system is rebooted, if the system is allowed to fsck, the
journal is hosed and the filesystem eats itself.

coud you be more specific? what does fsck.ext3 say? is there something in lost+found? remember to use latest version of e2fsprogs. have you tried a vanilla kernel yet?
