Dell PowerEdge SC1430

leave a comment »

This is most likely the most powerful machine I’ve ever set my hands on:

  • 2xQuadCore Xeon E5320 @ 1.86GHz (module: p4-clockmod)
  • 4GB RAM on an Intel 5000V memory controller [8086:25d4] (module: i5000_edac)
  • graphics: ATI ES1000 [1002:515e]
    (can’t handle resolutions higher than 1152×864, the message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log is “mode requires too much memory bandwidth”)
  • sas-raid: Dell PERC5 [1028:0015] (module: megaraid_sas)
  • ethernet: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5751 [14e4:1677] (module: tg3)
  • no soundcard!!!

I was also seeing a message in dmesg:  “out of memory: process ureadahead killed”. Not sure why the oom-killer got activated, but removing ureadahead made it go away…
