Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

It seems that reproducible on VirtualBox 4.1.6 too. Host is Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit with 24Cpus and 64Gb of RAM running mix of OpenSuse 11.3 and Ubuntu 10.10 guests.

From the log:

Wondering if GSO off trick will help.

sadly, GSO off trick did not help too... Now tried to increase vm.min_free_kbytes to 65535 and will see if this will help

It also reproduces on VirtualBox 4.0.16. Host is Ubuntu 10.04 64bits running on a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz. Guest is Ubuntu 10.04 32bit

We're having the same problem with a CentOS 6.2 (x86-64) host and some Linux and Windows guests with Virtualbox 4.1.10r76795. The machine has 32GB of RAM and is using the e1000e network driver. Kernel version is 2.6.32-220.7.1.el6.x86_64.

The relevant part of stack trace is always:

[<ffffffff81422a86>] ? skb_copy+0x36/0xa0
[<ffffffffa04883a8>] ? vboxNetFltLinuxPacketHandler+0x98/0x5b0 [vboxnetflt]
[<ffffffff8142c715>] ? dev_hard_start_xmit+0x155/0x3f0
[<ffffffff81449c2a>] ? sch_direct_xmit+0x15a/0x1c0
[<ffffffff81430f78>] ? dev_queue_xmit+0x4b8/0x6b0

The problem can be triggered by heavy usage of the NFS server running on the same host.

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 4.2.10. Could be a duplicate of #11178.
