Fix the RAID
|Reported by:||price||Owned by:||andersk|
Our RAID is still mysteriously, horrendously slow in certain circumstances. It starts spewing thousands of the same puzzling errors, and some IO hangs for minutes.
The vendor blames the errors on the cable connecting the RAID to black-mesa. Tonight we swapped out the cable and one of the two connectors on its ends; nothing improved.
Tonight we also tried booting a 2.6.24 kernel. The error messages recurred, but the delay could not be reproduced. If we fix #41, we can upgrade the kernel; or we could consider backporting the new driver to our present etch (2.6.18-something) kernel.
We should also go back to the vendor, tell them that replacing the cable didn't help, and ask them to actually help debug the problem.
