I did observe similar behaviour on four X4100 M2 as well (two with one
socket dual-core, two with two sockets dual-core Opterons) using amd64
bsd.mp snapshots from 23 and 28 Aug..
Currently, amd64 bsd.mp snapshot 28. Aug is running stable on those
four servers, although using a single SAS disk without RAID.
Several days ago, there was a commit in kernel CVS about delaying
start of IPMI which is causing annoying delays at startup of amd64.
Eventually, a more recent snapshot becomes available which includes
this modification, before I get around to build a -current kernel.
You said same action above for 23 & 28, and here you say stable for 28?
I justed look now on the site and the latest snapshots was done just a
few hours ago:
ftp> ls pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/amd64/bsd.mp
227 Entering Passive Mode (129,128,5,191,167,61)
150 Have a Gorilla.
-r--r--r-- 1 1114 1114 6708422 Sep 11 23:14 bsd.mp
226 There, everyone likes a Gorilla.
So, I am not sure what testing you did, unless you built your own. new
Snapshots was just release now, witch I will be happy to test tonight
and see the results and report back.
Here is the new dmesg for current.
So far the boot process is much faster and do not hang anymore.
I am doing install on three more boxes now and will do a bunch of reboot
cycles to see the end results.
Still some acpi not configure in the dmesg, but so far does look better.
Also, note this is on the latest bios and ilom as well as the latest SAS
drivers as well. Not the one that comes directly from Sun.
BIOS: 39, not the standard 34 version.
SAS: 1.16.40, not the 1.16.00
