Dell E5520 and E5510 - ufs crash or something?



  • I have a crash every few weeks.

    I have had the hard disks in these laptops both in compatibility mode and AHCI.  I do not know if the driver crashes or something?  All I know is when I get to the system, the root FS is read only.

    Output of dmesg relating to controller:

    ahci0: <intel cougar="" point="" ahci="" sata="" controller="">port 0x80b0-0x80b7,0x80a0-0x80a3,0x8090-0x8097,0x8080-0x8083,0x8060-0x807f mem 0xe5420000-0xe54207ff irq 18 at device 31.2 on pci0
    ahci0: AHCI v1.30 with 6 6Gbps ports, Port Multiplier not supported
    ahcich0: <ahci channel="">at channel 0 on ahci0
    ahcich1: <ahci channel="">at channel 1 on ahci0
    ahcich3: <ahci channel="">at channel 3 on ahci0
    ahcich4: <ahci channel="">at channel 4 on ahci0
    ahcich5: <ahci channel="">at channel 5 on ahci0
    ahciem0: <ahci enclosure="" management="" bridge="">on ahci0

    Here is the hard drive input:

    ada0 at ahcich0 bus 0 scbus1 target 0 lun 0
    ada0: <wdc wd2500bevt-75a23t0="" 01.01a01="">ATA-8 SATA 2.x device

    ses0: <ahci sgpio="" enclosure="" 1.00="" 0001="">SEMB S-E-S 2.00 device
    ses0: SEMB SES Device

    This has been happening ever since the upgrade to 2.x.  So years?

    pfsense 1.x ran great!

    The big problem I have, is that the fs goes readonly before anything is written to logs. I do not have a free PCMCIA slot for a compact flash card, even if I wanted to use one.  I could install to usb and try that.

    I guess I could try and redirect system logging to a server but does anyone have any better ideas on capturing the log to help me figure out what this is?

    Does anyone know what it is?  Is there a setting I could adjust to make pfsense use the hard drive less aggressively or something?

    The system does not reboot so I do not think any crash data :/</ahci></wdc></ahci></ahci></ahci></ahci></ahci></ahci></intel>
