Hmmm... have you talked to Intel yet? I know that the S5000XVN is a
recent board and all, and maybe they can provide you with some helpful
tips in determining the root cause of your issue.
I would suggest doing what Jeff suggested, with enabling KDB,
WITNESS, INVARIANTS, and the like. I would consider also disabling SMP
for a while and see if the issues persist.
What scheduler are you using?
Also, is there a common point where your server's running into
issues under load, with particular programs?
