1 Howdy,
3 As some know, I've done some upgrades recently.  A month or so back, I
4 had reboots due to Dolphin using up all the system memory, since
5 upgraded from 16GBs to 32GBs.  I stopped using Dolphin for that reason. 
6 I'll test it someday to see if the bug is fixed.  Just a bit ago I had
7 my system power off.  On one hand, I think it is a hardware issue with
8 the computer.  On the other hand, I noticed something odd.  The display
9 was on on my UPS when my system went down.  It usually only comes on
10 when I push the button or the power fails.  Thing is, the power hadn't
11 failed.  Sort of makes me wonder.  I have a CyberPower CP 1350C that has
12 that digital display thing.  The display is blue.  Some may have seen
13 one before.  While I was shutdown, I checked the UPS to make sure it
14 switches as it should by unplugging it.  It did.  My speakers, modem,
15 router etc didn't lose power.  When I got booted up, I ran upsc and it
16 shows a complete charge on the battery.  Like this:  battery.charge:
17 100  The most load I've ever had on it was about 250 watts.  That's with
18 the new CPU and it compiling heavily.  It's not even close to being
19 overloaded.
21 I checked the messages log.  Before with the memory hogging Dolphin it
22 had logged the problem.  Today, it shows this:
25 Dec 15 20:40:01 fireball CROND[30668]: (root) CMD (/usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1)
26 Dec 15 20:50:01 fireball CROND[1532]: (root) CMD (/usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1)
27 Dec 15 21:00:01 fireball CROND[5513]: (root) CMD (/usr/lib64/sa/sa1 1 1)
28 Dec 15 21:01:01 fireball CROND[5718]: (root) CMD (run-parts
29 /etc/cron.hourly)
30 Dec 15 21:08:34 fireball syslog-ng[4370]: syslog-ng starting up;
31 version='3.17.2'
32 Dec 15 21:08:34 fireball /usr/sbin/gpm[4400]: *** info
33 [daemon/startup.c(136)]:
34 Dec 15 21:08:34 fireball /usr/sbin/gpm[4400]: Started gpm successfully.
35 Entered daemon mode.
38 As you can see, it went from running a normal cron job to me booting
39 back up.  I don't see any error at all.  Not even one electron.  One
40 other odd thing.  When I first boot up, my ethernet port, net.eth1,
41 fails to come up.  I have to reboot and then it comes up fine.  It comes
42 up the second time even if I do a complete power off.  When I got logged
43 into KDE and started my webrowsers, they are asking about recovering the
44 last session.  Obviously they were not closed in a normal way. 
46 When I hit the power button to turn it back on the first time, I went
47 into the BIOS and checked the temps of the CPU etc.  They all looked
48 normal and all fans were working.  I thought maybe it got hot or
49 something but that doesn't seem to be the case either. 
51 What should I suspect?  Is the UPS display a sign the UPS itself did
52 something?  Could my power supply in the puter being going out? 
53 Something else I should check?  Something else I should check next time
54 before powering up?  Ideas?  Thoughts? 
56 Thanks
58 Dale
