I’m playing with Adaptive Partitioning for the first time on a pxa270 target.
As a first task I’d like to set up a debug partition so a user can telnet and log into a heavily loaded target.
A debug partition was set up : aps -b10 DevDebug
Then io-net and inetd are launched into the DevDebug partition.
pidin sched shows that io-net and inetd are running in the new partition.
After telneting into an unloaded system pidin shows that telnetd and sh are also assigned to the new partition.
But… when the system is heavily loaded we cannot telnet into the target. If we telnet into an unloaded target, then apply the load, the shell becomes unresponsive until the system again becomes unloaded.
It sort of seems like AP isn’t working. I thought that maybe the flash driver and inflator needed to also be in the new partition so commands could be loaded from flash, but shouldn’t those threads inherit the new partition?
