RHEL 7.8 o/s freeze

Latest response

I have a bunch of Dell 3430 running RHEL 7.8, they crash every few days with similar errors on the console.

(1) [Firmware Bug] The BIOS has corrupted hw-PMU resources

(2) Out of memory: Kill process 204 (systemd-edevd) score 351 or sacrifice child

Network and video freeze requiring a reset.


Hi Scott,

Given the severity and dynamic nature of this, I highly recommend generating a sosreport and attaching it to a case you open with Red Hat.

On that note, please examine this solution on diagnosing an out of memory issue, and if you have kdump, examine this solution, but again, I recommend opening a case with Red Hat.

Kind Regards,
