> Hi all,
> I have been pestering everyone who will listen on this, and

> I have a FreeBSD system on a Dell PE 1850 that has been
> randomly freezing up from time to time in the past two weeks.
> Firewall is enabled, but is very solid as I am using the same
> rules on several other machines.
> I spent last Saturday and Sunday at the NOC, running Dell 32
> bit diagnostics on it, along with memtest32, no errors found
> over many hours of testing.
> NO heat of note from the Power supply CPU or system fan.
> Nothing ever in log files, no core dumps. I have the
> DUMDEV="AUTO" set in rc.conf, but ran dumpon -v /dev/da0s1b
> today, the output showed it should be dumping to my swap partition.
> APIC is disabled now, but has been enabled in the past, with
> the same results. POwer management is shut off in the bios.
> No System Events are being recorded in BIOS, and, the logs
> were harvested last week with no abnormalitied showing.
> The only item of note, that I found after todays freeze, was in
> /var/log/maillog, and /var/log/exim/mainlog, about 15 lines of ^@
> recorded at about the exact tine of the freeze. Does anyone
> think this is significant, or is it simply a symptom of the crash?
> ANY help will be greatly appreciated.
