Don't leave a temp nfs mount from server mounted and walk away for 16 days.
Well I logged into the server that hosts sgvlug, beacuse Robert's
earlier post about mambo made be parniod even thought I was sure we
never installed mambo until after the xml-rpc exploit was fixed. So I
ran top and load average is over 17. wtf? the system is very
responsive, I check there are 245 processes active, 99% idle. I look
and every cron.dialy run sense Feb5 is running and each has several
childern. I look df -hq is status D.
Hmm.... I run df -h it freezes after all the filesystems that should
be on the system. crap, df will not die. Being a person that has had
lots of hardmounted nfs filesystem go away on him in the past I figure
out the problem and login again and check /proc/mounts yet I have
filesystem mounted on a system that normally has a firewall up the
normally prevents nfs. umount -f some/temp/nfsmount. check load again
now at 27+ system still responsive.
Well all is right again and load is back to 0.00 just thought I would share.
