My backup machine has been rendered unresponsive.
It is a Core 2 Duo / 2GB system running DragonFly v22.214.171.1246.g3da46-DEVELOPMENT
I think it was after a rsync run. There were many rsync error messages
on the console followed by this kernel message:
[diagnostic] cache_lock : blocked on 0xe920a868 "spwd.db"
The machine did respond to ping, but nothing else:
- no nfs traffic
- no ssh response
- nothing when pressing keys on the console.
I managed to get a core dump via ctl-alt-esc; it has been put online
