Kernel error

I have an error as given below :
but i could not find any solution for this. Every time when my free ram gets under 2-3 gb it is getting down so fast and when it reach to 400 mb free it gives this error without using any swap memory,

Very strangely this is the same error that i see with the same harwdares, and in all the google i have found only this :D

how this happens, i could not understand is this a chance to have the same machine with the given example

you need to say what kernel version you are using, perhaps what was running one the server at the time...

It could be a hardware fault or a kernel bug that a yum update would fix.

Centos is currently on 2.6.18 where did you get 2.6.30 from. What Centos are you running?

CentOS release 5.4 (Final)
joolsSenior Systems AdministratorCommented:
I'm on Centos 5.4 but my kernel is 2.6.18-128 Have you installed a kernel from

Where did 2.6.30 come from, that could be causing your problems. You should be using the stock kernels with Centos.
CahitEyAuthor Commented:
no this is installed my datacenter's rescue system it is standart for all servers
joolsSenior Systems AdministratorCommented:
what do you mean by your datacenters rescue system?

If you're not using the standard kernels then you could get strange results. I would have to suggest you use the standard kernels.
CahitEyAuthor Commented:
you misunderstood me
My datacenter give me a rescue system and it install this to all server's in the datacenter this version
if i install over rescue it will be with kernel 2.30 like all the other servers in there
joolsSenior Systems AdministratorCommented:
I guess I'm not following this at all.

You say you're usiing Centos 5.4 but Centos 5.4 uses a 2.6.18 kernel and you say your kernel is 2.6.30 but this is your "rescue system".

Now if you install over the rescue system it will be with kernel 2.30.

I'm afraid I can help but be confused.

You'll need to explain what is going on any why you are not using the stock kernel for your Centos 5.4 install.
CahitEyAuthor Commented:
because datacenter advice to use this image ,
also we have checkd nearly all services error logs. but there was no problem with any of them for ex. when i face with this problem today there was only 68 active client on apache and one time i had faced with this there were 2000+ clilents but any of this my free ram is not under 3Gb
when it come to 3gb free memory it directly counts down to 400 and locks the server.
cpu usage is also seems normal.
Your bug looks awfully like this one:

They refer to 2.6.30-rc8 (pre-release kernel version).  Ask your datacenter about it.

This is also plesk's report :

I'd worry about EXT3-fs error.  Search system logs for exact error message.
Duncan RoeSoftware DeveloperCommented:
I would go to single-user mode, ensure /dev/sda1 is mounted read-only and run fsck -f on it.
This should tell you whether the EXT3 errors actually cause damage, or are only errors in reading (possibly associated with the kernel bug you appear to have encountered)
It could be a ram fault - can you try to change some ram module?

You could also test your RAM by running memtest86, available from
