VirtualBox 4.2.6 , Guest freeze / hangs on network load

Reported by: hexa Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: freeze network
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other



Using VirtualBox 4.2.6 on FreeBSD 8.3 host (64bit), and Debian 7.0 guest with kernel : 3.2.0-4-amd64.

When doing a large rsync of multi gigabyte file sizes, the Guest completely freezes ,

  • Console is frozen (can't type)
  • Network is down (ping host unknown)

It freezes for about 5 minutes, then the transfer aborts and the machine comes back.

No logs in VBox.log when the condition occurs. No logs in the Guest messages, kern.log or anything...

I tried all the Network Adapters they all fail at some point from 20 Gigs transferred to 200G.

This happens only with more then 1 CPU, with only one CPU it's stable. (Tested 1, 6 and 12 CPU on Guest) on Host : Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620

Other possibly useful information : I'm using dm-crypt on the Guest to encrypt incoming traffic, I will test without this to rule it out.

I also at one time using virt-io had this error log : virtio_net virtio0: output:id 138 is not a head!

But since it freezes using all the network adapters I assume it's not virtio related...

Any help is appreciated , I will perform any test requested ...

Thank you very much!
