View Full Version : Massive stability problems, can anyone diagnose?

Apr 14, 2008, 04:47 AM
Hi, I've a feeling this may take a while to sort out!

I've had a dedicated server with plesk 8.1 installed, though I'm not 100% sure plesk is causing the problems, because it has been freezing about once every 10 days (sometimes twice a week!) for the past 5 months. My dedicated server support staff have ran a hardware stress test on the cpu and hard drives and they say all checks out fine.

Here is the latest output in dmesg:

hald-probe-smbi[3360] trap stack segment rip:4010d0 rsp:7fff0724eab0 error:0

then shortly after reboot (because that looked a bit sick to me!)

Many thanks if you can help!
