Here are a few suggestions. Is your ILO connected and configured? It will tell your exactly what's happening with the system. Please review the ILO4 log. View the system's IML log (available via ILO or vSphere "hardware" tab) Are there any indicators or error messages on the screen during crash or at POST? Are you using the HP-specific install of ESXi ...

The packet loss is not necessary an indication of a problem. Remember those are attempts to communicate with that particular network node directly. Usually those in-between router nodes are only responsible for passing traffik through to another location. They are not required to chat with you directly at all, and one that drops most of your chat should not ...

Execute sp_who2 Look at the ProgramName column and you will see something like SQL Server Profiler - 362b6154-2d69-4ce0-987b-2573bed3ce45. From that query you can define a user name and HostName...

Belarc Advisor Running the advisor on a PC will generate a report to a web browser. Details cover both hardware and software of the machine with a very useful amount of detail (such as license keys for some software).

The simplest way is at a command line do: systeminfo You will get a section that looks like: Total Physical Memory: 16,383 MB Available Physical Memory: 926 MB Page File: Max Size: 19,868 MB Page File: Available: 4,562 MB Page File: In Use: 15,306 MB That is taken directly from one of my machines. That info is near the top.

Take a look at mtr. It's traceroute and ping consolidated into one tool and continuously monitors the path between two hosts. You get output like that below. It's available as package mtr-tiny for Ubuntu and mtr for CentOS. My traceroute [v0.75] somehost.lan (0.0.0.0) Thu Aug 18 20:52:49 2011 ...

FYI - for any VMWare guest, if you want to get a memory dump, you can take a snapshot, then use vmss2core.exe to extract the memory to a traditional windows memory dump file that can be read using windbg, and therefore MS support or other qualified people. Converting a snapshot file to memory dump using the vmss2core tool (2003941) ...

Ultimate boot cd would be the first thing I would use.

If you don't want to spend any money, download a Linux livecd (my favorite http://www.sysresccd.org/), and run badblocks. Non destructive read and write test, badblocks -c 2048 -sn /dev/sdi this will re-write every block. Destructive read and write test badblocks -c 2048 -sw /dev/sde Read only test badblocks -c 2048 -s /dev/sde The -c option tells it ...

1) Is Packet drops at HOST n = Sum of Packet drops for packets sent exclusively for HOST n? Yes, they are specifically for that host. MTR relies on sending a packet of a fixed TTL, and expects to receive back a "time exceeded" ICMP response for the ICMP echo it originally sent which will come from the router which the TTL exceeded. How safe is it to ...

The ps command shows the running processing with their parameters. So, -k start should be the parameters passed to httpd process. You can check the listening state of apache using: $ sudo netstat -lnp | grep 80 Also, check the apache log files.

ps -A -o pid,state,command | awk '{ if ($2 == "R") print }' 1605 R /usr/bin/skype 30655 R ps -A -o pid,state,command or use htop and sort(F6) by "S" or to troubleshoot highload values: while [ 1 ] ; do ps -A -o pid,state,command | \ awk '{ if ($2 != "S") print }' | \ grep -v "ps -A -o pid,state,command" ; sleep 3 ; done

You could download the .iso for Ultimate Boot CD and run some basic diagnostics with it. As for things like the RAID controller, you should be able to boot into its BIOS and look at the array at least to make sure it isn't degraded.

Please try sxconsole. "sxconsole is a tool used to extract various report types and then analyze those extracted reports with plug-ins. The tool also provides an archiving structure so that all the compressed and extracted reports are saved to a directory. This tool was developed for sysreport/sosreports but has been expanded to include any report that has ...

Yes, you have some prefailure warnings, get them swapped out ASAP.

In some of the servers I managed, we started to get many ECC errors in the kernel logs. Even after the whole the RAM set changed, the errors continued as we did nothing to the server. At that point we concluded that memory controllers fried and the motherboard swapped out. This might be the very case for you.

You should not need to reference port codes unless you're really having an issue with the server getting through the POST process. What behavior is the server exhibiting? The ProLiant POST boot troubleshooting flowchart still indicates checking the codes as a necessary step. It's not valid on newer boxes, but the ProLiant DL580 G5 you're dealing with uses ...

iirc, telnet isn't installed by default on centos 6 machines anymore. if you don't have tools like telnet or nc available you can always talk to a network socket using python. (not sure if this fits your "convenient" requirement though... ) to simply test if the connection can be established: [gryphius@ut ~]$ python Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Feb 22 2013, ...

PostgreSQL can only use one core for any given query. It achieves good parallel performance with many concurrent queries, but doesn't benefit from large core counts for workloads of just a couple of very big queries. So if you're only running a single query that 5% isn't all that surprising, though I'd expect it to be 12% on an 8-core system. The lack of ...

Since you have already checked the clock and ECC, verify that the chipset can deal with the the Memory Rank of the particular modules you're trying to use. In laymans terms, this means that you have to look out on how much memory a chip on the RAM module holds, and how many of these chips are on a module. The description of the memory rank is often omitted ...

It depends on the information you need. If you need only those policies applied to the user, run as unprivileged user, but if you also need those policies applied to the computer, you must run it with administrator privileges. You can also get applied policies to a different account using the /USER modifier running the gpresult command as administrator.

If you're unwilling to restart your system to install the manufacturer's tools you're basically going to sit here being stubborn until the machine completely dies. At that point it doesn't matter what you want. The machine will be down, probably for good. You won't have to worry about restarting because you'll have to do so as part of replacing the hard ...

A quick google reveals inotify api in the Linux kernel. Inotify (inode notify) is a Linux kernel subsystem that acts to extend filesystems to notice changes to the filesystem, and report those changes to applications I can't find any applications that allow you to watch a file directly with inotify. However there is the inotify-tools package which ...

I think you can use audit for specific file/directory or you can write custom rule based on your requirement auditctl -w <path to the file you need to monitor> -p war -k test Where -w is for specifying file path -p is for permission access (read,write,execute and attribute change) -k key name,you can give name you can ...

use SQL Profiler and look for existing connection and login events from application name "SQL Server Profiler - {guid}" where {guid} varies by run (and by default SQL Profiler runs exclude themselves based on its own application name.

Looks like you have some inactive root server or link. Use dfsutil.exe with /pktinfo switch to list down details of DFS root and verify all root and link servers are online. some good articles on DFS http://blogs.technet.com/filecab/archive/tags/DFS+Namespaces/default.aspx DFSutil syntax

Can you post your output of dmidecode for the memory section? (dmidecode --type memory) You might want to read this: http://www.howtoforge.com/dmidecode-finding-out-hardware-details-without-opening-the-computer-case The "NS" references "nanosecond" the speed in which the memory is able to reply. The lower the number the faster the speed. Unfortunately this ...
