I have a BeagleBone Black. I use it for testing a C++ library under 32-bit ARM. The library has a test driver executable program. The library also has a test script which builds test driver under different configurations and then executes the self tests.
The script takes about 4 hours to run on a modern desktop. I’m guessing its going to take 2 to 3 days under the BeagleBone. The problem is, the machine basically hangs after about 8 to 12 hours of testing. My current SSH session stops producing output. When I attempt to start a new SSH session, it partially hangs (progresses very slowly).
When I check counters for running processes under the new shell, I see nearly all counters are 0.
cryptest.sh has been running for over a day, so it seems like it should be non-0 (see below).
The BeagleBone is running Debian 8 snapshot from December, 2015.
Any ideas on how I should start troubleshooting the problem?
Thanks in advance.
