I have been hammering two machines running vserver with netstat -
not a single lockup. A coworker reports ntp consuming all free
FDs when using ctx8 - but I have no more data on that (I'll look
into it next week). So far ctx9 has been rock solid for me.
All installations (including the ntp-lockup ones) are based on
RedHat. Interestingly, the ntp lockups happen on the main server
(i.e. ntp is not running in a vserver) and there are no "full"
vservers running on that machine, only the security contexts are
switched for selected server binaries.
