Hello Andrea

i think you need to think about that Lars told you = (Upgrade to SP2) or
maybe you can try to use a diferent lun for the sbd and use ionice for
setting the realtime class for sbd process

> Here are three logs from the last server watchdog-driven reboot on friday

> seconds.
> 1) sar.txt is the output of sar -d -p- 2 (two seconds frequency of disk
> statistics pretty printed), starting right before the reboot
> 2) messages.txt is an extract of the server /var/log/messages starting
> right
> before the reboot, with QLogic driver, scsi layer and SBD verbose loggings
> enabled
> 3) cpu1.txt is the output of sar -P ALL -2 (two seconds frequency of cpu
> statistics), filtered by cpu #1, starting right before the reboot
> sda is the local drive, sdb and sdc are the same single SAN LUN as seen by
> the two FC ports of the server, san is the LUN multipath alias, san_part1
> is
> the SBD partition, san_part2 is the Oracle partition.
> sar.txt shows that somewhere between 17:46.44 and 17:46.46 all reads and
> writes to/from the san LUN drops to zero, for both SBD and Oracle
> partitions, right until the 17th second of the SBD countdown, at which time
> something (3.88 wr/s) seems to get written on the Oracle partition.
> %util jumps to 100% as it does iowait%, from cpu1.txt, on 3 of the 24 cpu

> messages.txt shows at 17:46.44 this QLogic driver message that is different
> from the rest og QLogic messages:
> May  3 17:46:44 server1 kernel: [66588.156113] qla2xxx
> [0000:11:00.1]-5816:2: Discard RND Frame -- 1006 02c1 0000.
> By the time I started facing these problems, I got gigs of
> /var/log/messages
> from these servers now, and the QLogic driver will write some rare "dropped
> frame(s) detected" from time to time during normal server operations, but
> it
> will never write this "Discard RND Frame" message unless there's going to
> be
> an unwanted reboot right after. No scsi layer read and write communication
> on sdb and sdc gets recorded by the kernel afterwards, except for a couple
> of "device ready" commands. All these info have been shared with the SAN
> department already.
> Yesterday the SAN department has made a parameter configuration change on

> switching paths back and forth as the relative switches got restarted) I
> hope this fixes the problem, otherwise we might investigate the switch port
> configuration change described in the following link, as our current
> configuration seems to apply (8Gb fc, Brocade switches, lots of er_bad_os
> port errors, fill word port mode currently set to 1, and random server
