2.4.21-rc6: softraid anamoly

Post by Marc Heckman » Wed, 04 Jun 2003 05:20:11



Hi,

I just installed a vanilla 2.4.21-rc6 smp kernel on a redhat 9 system
today. To my surprise, the priority of the raid kernel threads are quite
odd:

  PID USER     PRI  NI  SIZE CPU COMMAND
    3 root      19  19     0   0 ksoftirqd_CPU0
    4 root      19  19     0   1 ksoftirqd_CPU1
    5 root       9   0     0   0 kswapd
    6 root       9   0     0   1 bdflush
    7 root       9   0     0   1 kupdated
    9 root     18446744073709551615 -20     0   1 mdrecoveryd
   18 root     18446744073709551615 -20     0   0 raid1d
   19 root     18446744073709551615 -20     0   0 raid1d
   20 root     18446744073709551615 -20     0   0 raid1d
   21 root     18446744073709551615 -20     0   0 raid1d

(some fields were and rows removed for clarity).

anyway, output of ver_linux and my .config are below.

Known problem in procps-2.0.11 (sprintf %llu). You should upgrade to 2.0.12 or
2.0.13, and you'll see -1 here !

Cheers,

ok. thanks for the info. sorry for the false alarm. I had done some
searching before hand to see if it was something obvious like that
but couldn't find anything.
