Just wondering if anyone sees any clues from the following screen shot as to what might have caused this server to lock up:

debian server crash

This server also locked up 6 months ago, and I still have the screen shot from that too:

debian server crash from six months ago

The server is running Proxmox 1.8 (which is based on Debian Lenny, but a kernel that I think comes from OpenVZ). uname output (host name masked):

Linux ------ 2.6.32-4-pve #1 SMP Mon May 9 12:59:57 CEST 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Does anyone see any clues based on these screen shots as to whether this is a hardware or software issue?


This looks like a kernel divide by zero bug that was fixed in version 3.1.5. A patch is available if you want to attempt to backport it.

  • Thanks, I think you're right. I'll go see if the Proxmox and OpenVZ developers have anything to say about this. The latest Proxmox / OpenVZ releases are based on 2.6.32. :-( – Curtis Apr 2 '13 at 22:26
