Hi all,

Our kernel is 2.6.32-358.14.1.x86_64, recently dozens of them panicked, since it’s been OK for a long time and the problem emerged all of a sudden, I’m not sure if an upgrade caused this problem. Here’s what I got from backtracing:

One thought on - CentOS 6.4 Tcp_fatretrans_alert Causes Panic

  • Hi,

    Being in a production environment, all the more reason to have an upgrade plan in place and be running latest package version with all the fixes provided.

    Is this isolated to one machine or many?

    Can it be reproduced and if so how?
