I normally leave my Fuel run 24x7; however, the other day when I came home it was down and after reboot, I'd found in syslog:
Quote:

What in your opinion is the exact reason for that? Can I do anything about it?

Mainboard monitoring failure ...

You have a service contract. Get a new one. In the meanwhile < l1cmd env off > will get you back running. That's what us normal mortals have to do :) The environment monitoring on Fuel sucks. SGI probably lost plenty of money by cheapying out on the components there. Save a nickel, lose a dollar MBA-think. Oops.

Heh, hamei, you really recall that I've a service contract!!! Congrats to your brain - should be preserved in some nicely-labelled jar!!! Anyway, I'll be fine with a new board in a few days. Don't want to think about what it oost me without contract, though!

I had the same problem recently and had to kill the environmental monitoring. I don't have a contract though :(

Hmm, I'm not sure that killing env monitoring will save you. As I've noted in my original post of this thread, the messages are written by the kernel so they will be in the syslog even if eventmond is not running. Also, I suspect my box would have been killed anyway regardless of whether eventmond was running or not ...

Hmm.... well, only time will tell. So far, turning the monitoring off has saved me, but I may have to get a new mobo eventually :(

If you're shutting off env monitoring on the L1 (which is the case here) it won't report anything to the kernel. No-one said anything about turning off eventmond - this is more low level :)

Going on two years now here .... if it finally dies it'll go into the scrapper. The Fuel just isn't that great a computer to spend SGI's version of money on.

yes, sadly the fuel was more sort of a mips-pc like the alpha-pc those days or the 604e based ibms.

Didn't mean to come off as quite so negative about the Fuel - it's not a bad computer, actually. It's just that SGI still had their heads up their asses when they priced it. Okay, the mainboard and cpu are low-volume high-cost items. But $600 for an off-the-shelf peecee case ? The exact same one they used in the 230 and 330 machines ? And the rest of their Fuel prices are equally nonsensical. No wonder they are bankrupt. No one who isn't a fanboy (us) is gonna spend six times what something is worth just because it says SGI on the outside. And then they shit on their fanboy constituency. Great.

You know, it sounds like these monitoring boards can probably be fixed... judging by what Oskar posted earlier, looks like it may be capacitors or something oscillating in the buffer amps. Anyone got a really good clear picture (IC part number readability is good) of what one looks like, working or not?

Hmm - does that mean, if you shut off monitoring on the L1, the box would not die even if the voltage gets too low???
