Re: USB - the Elephant in our Room

Sorry for driving this more off-topic with a quick question. I've always ran dist-upgrade before rpi-update. Is that necessary? TX

Re: Kernel paging error during heavy network and disk load

To clarify I am powering the Pi via a 1A usb adapter & the two usb-powered drives I am currently using are on a self-powered usb hub, so I wouldn't think it's a power issue. I did try doubling the vm.min_free_kbytes value again to 32768 with little effect, I suspect it's a case of diminishing retur...

Re: Kernel paging error during heavy network and disk load

FWIW. I have had one freeze during the previous week, along with the running transmission-daemon I had two terminals open, both copying files from one usb drive to another when it happened. I also share the drives via samba but wasn't accessing them that way at the time. To clarify I am powering the...

Re: Kernel paging error during heavy network and disk load

Running with "vm.min_free_kbytes = 16384" for an uptime of over 13 hours so far, no issues.

Is there anything I can be tracking this? What information might be useful leading up to this issue if it happens again?

Thanks dom.

Re: Kernel paging error during heavy network and disk load

I am experiencing this exact same issue. I'm running transmission-daemon & sharing a drive via samba & have experienced this error several times now. I'm using the 2012-07-15 image which already has the "vm.min_free_kbytes = 8192" in /etc/sysctl.conf.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. TX
