I think this is more likely a hardware issue. We haven't seen any machines crashing that
early. Please make sure the RAM modules in this machine are working properly.
I don't think so... I think it is a Kernel issue, since with kernel
5.9.0-2-sparc64-smp #1 SMP Debian 5.9.6-1 (2020-11-08) sparc64 GNU/Linux
the machine is performing fine with network, disk and compiler usage on
all 32 CPUs. I tried heavy load of parallel compilations, using git on
large repositories as well as using remote X applications at the same
time, a combination I know tends to show issues on systems, without
problems! Not a simgle error in syslog.
Machine powerup-and self-tests are fine too.
If I remember, there is a repository of various pre-compiled kernel
versions: maybe there are some releases between the two kernels I can
try and do some easy rough bisecting.
so I'd say RAM, CPUs, Disk and Ethernet are working quite fine
