Unhappy HP ML110G5 Compatibility

Hello all,

After successfullly testing on test server for a month or so, I finally decided to put the things to action and I purchased a HP Prolient ML110 G5 Server for my setup.

My setup includes.... Ubuntu Server 8.04 LTS, Postfix, ProFTP etc, (using Perfect Setup by Falko) and ISPConfig.

I want to know, is there any known issues related to ML110 G5 Server running all these? because it runs fine while I setup all the things, but after that it hangs (I can say it nearly hangs, 'cause it responds very-very slow)

The similar installation on my test server runs fine and without any problem.

My test server is Intel Pentium P3 @ 350 MHz / 256 MB RAM / 40 GB SCSI and ML 110 G5 is standard configuration of Intel Xeon / 512 MB RAM / 160 GB SATA

Please help me, what to do with my new server?

Dipesh

in Falko's guide there seems to be nothing to cause this behavior. try to hunt down with top what process is eating lots of memory or hogging cpu-time. also output of "lspci -v" could show if there is unknown hardware. i am not aware which kernel ubuntu8.04 defaults, but your servers motherboard is pretty new design.

Yes, I know..... Falko's guide is just perfect, as said all these stuff run perfectly on my test test server.

running "lspci -v" - I do not find any unknown hardware.

I tried to shutdown running processes/services one-by-one, but couldn't get any result.

I also called HP technical support, but they are unaware about compatibility of ML110G5 with Ubuntu.

you should check harddisk output with hdparm ("hdparm -Tt /dev/sda"). if it shows unexpected values, then figure out who made harddisk and find bootable checking tool to see if it is broken. hdparm is not installed by default but is in apt.

i still suspect too old kernel. what version you have now? ("uname -r" tels that)
and how new version is in apt? ("apt-cache search linux-image|grep server )

this really interests me because we are looking for G5-series HP to replace our aging IBM eSeries-servers. i was not aware any problems. we use Debian though, but there should not be that much difference to Ubuntu.

No, I couln't find any errors in any of logs. According to syslog I can assume that the system is running fine, but in actual it doesn't.

so threre is not so much newer kernel available in standard repo. of course you can try this.

i searched ML110G5 manual from HP, and found some BIOS-settings that could have some effect on this situation.
and also in kernel-devel-mailinglist was couple mentios about ICHR-SATA-controller, which this machine has.

these tryouts may have same effect than you changing to different colour socks, but maybe worth to check anyway.

in BIOS there should be option like this under Advanced / Advanced Chipset Control:
Serial ATA -> this should be enabled
SATA Controller Mode Option -> for this manual does not list options, so you have to try.
SATA RAID Enabled -> this should be disabled.

in kernel-devel-mailinglist they had noticed that there is harddisk performance differences between SATA-ports on ICH7R depending from cheduler kernel is using. go figure...
so you could check that too.

and i am curious about hdparm-output?
