OS boot phase with the below error: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 67s! [swapper:1]
The error is more of a warning regarding a kernel lookup which is locking when something went wrong.
It points toward CPU being unresponsive to a softlockup timer (interrupt) within the timer window.
A 'softlockup' is defined as a bug that causes the kernel to loop in kernel mode for more than 20 seconds without giving other tasks a chance to run.
Softlockup can occur is when the machine goes into a loop with interrupts turned off.
This commonly happens if a device driver uses spinlocks improperly, but this error also could be caused by faulted hardware.
A root login is required.
Check /var/log/syslog for error.
Check watchdog_thresh setting value (found in /proc/sys/kernel).
Turn ON the System Optimization option if you using service Pack 72, this will disable loading of any video driver that is not need for Artica.
If the cause is not faulty hardware and still exists, create a ticket on https://bugs.articatech.com
