Load average

No comment:
  2:05pm  up 79 days  6:40,  5 users,  load average: 2948.98, 2948.04, 2945.49

(Later we found out that the load was actually "fake", the kernel had somehow died and everything accessing /proc/$pid/* was hanging in state D)

    Have seen this too, no idea where the bug is, had to reboot the system.

  2. Yeah, we also had to reboot, because even SSH login did not work anymore. Only a still running remote shell did work, until something (e.g. ps) wanted to touch /proc/*/*. Since this is a productive environment, I'll try to reproduce next week.
