 Advisory Information

RELEASE DATE: 2006-04-26


Code introduced in Tru64 UNIX V5.1B-3 may cause a CPU hang due to a hung "drd_event_thread" in "drd_reopen_partitions."

The drd_thread sometimes gets into an infinite loop when any one of several drd blocking flags is set. This happens when the disk is in I/O DRAINED state.

A typical stack trace follows:

0 thread_block
1 sleep_prim
2 mpsleep
3 drd_reopen_partitions
4 drd_change_server_node
5 drd_complete_failback
6 drd_handle_event_io_drained
7 drd_handle_one_event
8 drd_handle_events
9 drd_event_thread
