My home server seems to undergo random kernel panics. The panic string always says "Page fault". I have started a thread on the FreeBSD forums in hope of getting any answers, but did not. Even a seemlingly very knowledgeable forum member was unable to determine the cause, let alone a solution.
The forum thread can be read here: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?p=3201
It contains a dmesg of my system, backtraces of the vmcore.* files and all the things we tried in our quest to solve this mystery. In the end, it was suggested I should submit a problem report in the hopes of finding a solution to this.
If any further information is needed, I would be happy to oblige.
Just leaving the server running and it will panic at some time. Panics seem to be random. At first they occurred frequently when loading a torrent into my torrent daemon, but this ceased after I reformatted my ext3 disks to UFS.
The most recent occurrence was when I was streaming a video to my playstation, using mediatomb. Besides the broad concept of disk and network IO, there is nothing I can pinpoint.
