All apache proceses are in uninteraptible sleep.

All apache proceses are in uninteraptible sleep.

Post by Yani » Wed, 11 Jul 2001 23:25:16


I run apache on a linux machine.
I ran across a strange error: All the apache processes were in
uninterruptible sleep (state D in top program)
Max apache processes in my configuration is 150 and all of them were in
uninterruptible sleep. Therefore no one could enter my site (no more
available child processes)
When I try to stop the apache (/etc/init.d/httpd stop) I got a fail reply.
I had to reboot the computer.
Does anyone know why it has happened ? What to do against that ?



1. Help! I am losing sleep over ppp.

Dear Kind ppp genius people,

I am trying to get ppp 2.2.0.f running on my Linux 2.0.0 box.  I have
just received Linux 96 CD and I have installed both to a fresh hard
drive.  I am using minicom to dial into the server and then issueing the
following command:

                pppd -d -detach /dev/cua1 &

Then I enter the command:

                ifconfig ppp0

To get the following output:

        ppp0    Link encap: Point-Point Protocol
                inet addr:  P-t-P: Mask:
                UP POINTTOPOINT Running MTU: 553 Metric: 2
                Rx packets:20 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
                Tx packets:20 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

Even though it says I am up and running, ping does not work even when I
provide the address.

My question is: Where do I go from here?

I have read the HOWTO, I am looking for the PPP FAQ (if it exists).  I
am looking at the resolv.conf and options file.  I am on a small network
with SMC ethernet cards, is that messing me up?  Is there something else
I can post to this newsgroup to provide more information?  Is there
something wrong with version "f"?

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
