"I've been desperately trying to understand this problem on a box which for a number of reasons I am not allowed to upgrade (it is protected from the wild world outside so it isn't a key requirement)."
"Fundamentally the box is a PII, 266MHz with 128Mb RAM and IDE disk. Nothing to write home about. It runs OpenBSD 2.7 with all the applicable patches.This is the kind of thing that seems to stump me every now and then, and I can't seem to figure out how to debug it. Anyone have any advice?
After a certain amount of time, which is sadly variable, all network ports lock up. Through traffic (it is gatewaying) works fine, but no new processes seem to be able to start (for example there is sms_client as a cron on it to send a GSM SMS message on certain events).
I've totally run out of ideas. Can anyone help me debug this issue?
