After a 36 - 48hrs, the box will panic with "panic: pipeinit: cannot
allocate pipe -- out of kvm -- code = 3". It doesn't seem to happen during
periods of peak load, the last crash occurred at 3:45AM and there have
days when the box has made it through our peak load times with no
This happens because someone decided that it was a good idea to
implement over-commit with pipes. Meaning that the storage required
for a pipe's buffer won't be allocated until someone actually tries
to write to it. If the space can't be allocated the system panics.
