Thanks Eric and Simon,

I installed 2.4.9-31SGI_1.1smp kernel and everything was OK. I just
noticed one difference, with the newer 2.4.9-34smp kernel, I used to see
4 CPUs (using top) on our server which is a Compaq ML530G2. This server
have 2 CPUs only. But due to Intel Hyper-Threading technology on the new
Xeon 2.4 GHz processor, the 2.4.9-34smp kernel treats it as 4 CPUs.

After I installed 2.4.9-31SGI_1.1smp and rebooted I only could see 2
CPUs which is equal to the physical CPUs count. 

I am going to install kernel-smp-2.4.9-34SGI_XFS_1.1.i686.rpm and
hopefully I will see 4 CPUs. Some how it supposed to be faster with the
2 CPUs treated as 4 CPUs (?). 

Thanks for your help and the new RPMs.

Mike

Ok, they are there now, in
ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/Release-1.1/kernel_rpms/contribu
ted/2.4.18-34-RH/

Sorry it took so long to get them out there, this sort of fell through
the cracks.

Note that they're contributed, and have not been tested by SGI.

Thanks Simon!
