Ticket #11455 (reopened defect)
VirtualBox 4.2.6 , Guest freeze / hangs on network load
|Reported by:||hexa||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.2.6||Keywords:||freeze network|
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!
