Since this is a Gentoo list and not a CentOS list, email me off-list for further discussion. But what you describe sounds like the random glitches any "24x7" web server will have, regardless of which distro you use. It's why Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a profitable *product* and Red Hat Certified Engineers exist, and why until other distros have that kind of muscle, they won't be seriously considered in such migrations. CentOS is kind of a special case. Their aim is to produce an RHEL "clone" -- rebuild is the correct term. For the most part, they are only a day or so behind RHEL if that. So many if not most of the issues you ran into would have also happened on RHEL. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.3 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iD8DBQFGNNU6aZUb+jwczfoRAnVjAKC9eO7WYuAdTcAdtAWuaIiJv9vrxwCgjWvM rZB0ZX8z0nhYue3kSgpqio4= =6rfd -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-performance@g.o mailing list
