Description David Highley 2005-12-20 09:18:43 UTC
We have Dell Quad Xeon server that we end up rebooting about every 2-3
weeks when the number of open samba files sky rockets. The system is a
ClearCase server system. We have been monitoring this system for a few
months now and are not able to pin down a cause to this issue. The
system keeps a pretty constant number of samba open files until what
ever triggers the issue and then the number of file opens climbs at a
steep exponential rate.

We have an excel graph, but the moderator rejected the large e-mail.

RedHat Advanced Server 3 update 3
Linux quinault 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jan 12 23:35:44 EST 2005 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux Samba version=3.0.6-2E

Clients for the most part are Windows XP  and Windows 2003 Enterprise servers.

Please retest against a current release and reopen if the issue still exists.
