Help with negative inodes on sco 6

Hello.

I just installed a SCO Openserver 6 box and it's suckin' mud.

sar -v (see below) shows something that has me quite concerned... after time, it shows that the number of inodes being used as a negative value. When this happens, the server runs extremely slow until I reboot. The server could run great for hours without this event, or it could take a few minutes - it appears to happen randomly. I've checked the logs, but I couldn't find anything.

Does anyone have any idea on what could cause this condition? Thanks for your help.

Gerry
