I just had to a reboot a 4 week old 'out of the box' nw6.5.3 dell dual xeon
2G RAM server because the 2nd processor utilization went to 100% and the
server essentially stopped responding to the clients. Shutting off the cpu
thru Remote manager fixed the problems, but i rebooted anyway. It was
maxing out on interrupt handling, but from what i do not know. its typical
thread handling count is 15, but it was running far above that. my GWTSA
failed to backup groupwise last night, but i don't know if that could have
been the problem.

i'm not sure where to start looking to troubleshoot this dilemma. why the
2nd cpu in particular? bad cpu? disk problems? could it be the acpi?

any ideas anyone?
