[Bug 1573062] Re: memory_stress_ng failing for IBM Power S812LC(TN71-BP012) for 16.04


Note that memory_stress_ng is a script in the Checkbox certification
suite. The actual stress-ng command line should be:

timeout -s 9 $end_time stress-ng --aggressive --verify --timeout
$runtime --brk 0

The exact values of $end_time and $runtime vary with the amount of
memory in the system -- it's 300 seconds plus 10 seconds per GiB for
$runtime and 50% more for $end_time.

Note also that Mike's "1-3 hours tops" refers to the ENTIRE
memory_stress_ng run; the "stress-ng... --brk 0" run would of course be
much shorter than that, since the script runs a series of stressors in

  memory_stress_ng failing for IBM Power S812LC(TN71-BP012) for 16.04

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  memory_stress_ng, as part of server certification is failing for IBM
  Power S812LC(TN71-BP012) in bare metal mode. Failing in this case is
  defined by the test locking up the server in an unrecoverable state
  which only a reboot will fix.

  I will be attaching screen and kern logs for the failures and a
  successful run on 14.04 on the same server.
