comment How to check CPU temperature on a HP P2000?
Thanks! I'm aware of the complexity of the overall storage system, I just need to check how close the sensor values are to the danger thresholds. Here I found the thresholds (Table 10 on page 63), now I need to know the real temperature.

comment How to check CPU temperature on a HP P2000?
Thank you! I'm wondering why I don't have those CPU/FPGA lines in the beginning. Is it perhaps due to a different controller version? Mine is TS230P007. Or do I really lack those sensors in my system? You're right, I have a cooling problem, that's why I'm concerned about the particular sensor values. The "Onboard" danger threshold is at 70 C, which is OK, but I can't figure out the temperature of the CPU.

yeah, it's the same on my ubuntu box.

Thank you for this pointer! I will give it a shot and report the results after a while.

comment Solaris 11: understanding high values in the kernel statistics
I've updated the stats. See also this thread on my attempt on analyzing the core dump: serverfault.com/questions/391912/…

Thank you, this is a good start indeed. Unfortunately, I can't see anything in the assembler lines either :(

comment Solaris 11: understanding high values in the kernel statistics
I will have to wait for the next crash to collect this data, but I'll post it as soon as it happens next time. Whenever the system freezes, a reboot is needed, so it doesn't go away on its own.

just the default output of top. I've put the outputs for vmstat and prstat into the post. However, right now the system seems to be ok.

comment Solaris 11 hangs randomly: need help to figure out the reason
In P2000, there is a cascade of 3 LFF blocks with 10 disks each. Is it a precise answer?

comment Solaris 11 hangs randomly: need help to figure out the reason
As for your other comments: (A) I already tried to hotswap a disk and it worked pretty well, ZFS marked a disk as degraded and added a hot-spare. I was able to detach the disk, replace it and register as a new hot-spare, so I don't think this should be a problem in our setup. (B) well, I hope the support of Solaris 11 is a matter of time. Anyway, switching to something else will be necessary, if I don't get behind these crashes. (C) There are no core dumps as there is no kernel panic :(. The network interface used is qlcnic (firmware v. 4.8.20)

comment Solaris 11 hangs randomly: need help to figure out the reason
Thank you for your detailed answer! (1) it's a new installation, the crashes occur from the very beginning (2) connection to P2000 via SAS (what do you mean by layout?) (3) HBA: HP SC08e (4) no Management Agents installed (5) firmware is up-to-date, ILO configured (but nothing in the logs) (6) RAM ok (tested with memtest from some live-CD) (7) ASR is enabled but it's been never triggered

Please find some more details in the initial post. Yes, ILO is configured but doesn't tell anything about the hangs.

Thanks, that is exactly what I needed to know!

That sounds perfectly reasonable! Thank you very much for this explanation, guys!
