            Bug ID: 214449
           Summary: Had a crash : system otherwise works okay
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

I am running a FreeBSD 11 Release (amd64) machine in which practically all the
hardware is new (except the CPU which is an AMD Athlon X2 270 Regor, about 3
years in use). My board is a Gigabyte GA970-D3SP.

Till a couple of days back, I was facing a couple of issues on this system.
Quite possibly, the culprit was a bad NVidia graphics card. I replaced that
card with a new Sapphire Radeon card, and things have been much better. For 2
days since putting in the new card, the machine ran with no failure anywhere -
but then in the afternoon today, it suddenly crashed once. The system generated
a vmcore (about 700 MB).

Upon reboot (and fsck), the system has been running well again.

I have no skills debugging core files. But I wish to solicit expert help in
trying to find out the root cause of the crash.

Any help would be greatly be appreciated.
