Howdy,

The thread started by Czerno here:
http://www.woodmann.com/forum/showthread.php?13891-AMD-processors-quot-undocumented-quot-debugging-features-and-MSRs-%28DbgCtlMSR2-amp-al.%29

Got Slash-dotted and subsequently spread around the world quite quickly.

But our humble server could not handle the popularity and went to a pub or something.

Be aware that we may have this problem again. I will do my best to stay on top of it.

Actually, it was the CRCEKL entry that resulted from that thread (http://www.woodmann.com/collaborative/knowledge/index.php/Super-secret_debug_capabilities_of_AMD_processors_!) that was Slashdotted, but otherwise it is true indeed.

Yesterday we tripled the number of Webalizer "Sites" statistic (number of unique IP addresses/hostnames that made requests to the server)
.. from ~5000/day to over 15000.. and that was before it hung itself

Well that explains it. I've asked Woody to update my information so I can ask the service provider to reboot the server, but that might not have helped, under the circumstances.
