periodically one (not the same each time) of my machines get into this state:
Mar 10 12:17:47 persephone kernel: RPC: rpc_doio sending evil packet:
Mar 10 12:17:47 persephone kernel: caa99047 01000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 0182780b
Mar 10 12:17:47 persephone kernel: RPC: rpc_send sending evil packet:
Mar 10 12:17:47 persephone kernel: caa99047 01000000 00000000 00000000 0000
over and over, with 1 minute intervals. When they have been in this state
a while they become impossible to log into by telnet/rsh/ssh and the console
is not usable either. Reset button is only way out.
It _seems_ related to NFSds that die and hang, but I cannot offer any
good observations verifying this, I have never been able to observe
this decay process first hand, I only discover it when the machine
stops responding to maintenance routines...
