Weird behaviour

Description

Hello,

I know the topic isn't very clear, but that's what this whole thing is:

Sometimes processes in the guest are producing segfaults or exit without any reasons and fail. I can see this on Linux and on OS X hosts. Windows XP (guest) is sometimes affected, Windows 7 (guest) doesn't make it past the Windows Update installs without having the update service killed multiple times. It sometimes even produces a blue screen when you activate the guest (Windows license activation).

The main reason I didn't report the problem earlier was that I am unable to reproduce it. A few days ago someone else reported similar behaviour of his VMs on a Windows 7 Host, which could be solved by the same procedure I'm going to write about later, so I decided to file a bug report.

What happens is that the processes inside the guests fail. If you power the guest down and start it again (no reboot, new instance of Virtualbox), you still get the same error inside the guest. The only way around it, ist to power down the "broken" guest, start another VM, so that it allocates memory on the host, and then start the guest again (while the other VM is still running). After doing this, the guest starts to work properly again, as it now uses a different part of the host's memory (afaik).

In Windows 7 the update service fails, or .NET assemblies stop working from one second to another. On Linux guest you get all kinds of segfaults in all processes. Interesting is that you don't get a kernel core dump, all processes reside in user land. It's also independent of the memory the guest can use. I see it from machines with less than 256mb of Memory and up to 8GB and more of Memory.

The memory on my machines has been checked and everything is fine.

I'm sorry that I don't have any further information. If you have questions feel free to contact me.

I can see this on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 now too

Another user reported similar issues. He also gets randomly corrupted files when storing stuff to a shared folder.

After this is visible in dmesg, the Windows 7 machine becomes really slow:

In Windows I can see errors like these:

Possible Memory Leak.  Application (C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted) (PID: 836) has passed a non-NULL pointer to RPC for an [out] parameter marked [allocate(all_nodes)].

Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

It gets worse up to memory corruption errors from Windows.

As always: the moment you try to reproduce it, it's not showing...

And again. Now I can see a damaged Filesystem.

Please attach a VBox.log file of your VM to this ticket. This is mainly to get the VM configuration.

comment:8 Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

malloc: ../bash/arrayfunc.c:164: assertion botched

Aborting...

The thing is: It happens accross multiple VMs on different hosts.

I'll attach the logfile of the machine that is now in memory trouble. I see weird filesystem messages, tmux just segfaulted and took everything with it and the bash isn't even able todo any command completion.

Some unrelated information: Your extpack is still at 4.2.0, better update it to 4.2.6 -- but this should be really unrelated to your problem.

Recently we fixed a problem which looks a bit like your weird guest behavior but it could be only triggered with bigger guest RAM configurations. So I doubt that this is really the same problem but could you test  this build anyway? Thank you!

I installed the suggested build and after starting a Windows 7 VM, this appeared in dmesg:

And the Windows 7 VM is becoming extremely slow again.

The Linux VM seems to work, but I wouldn't rely on that so far.

VBox.log of the Windows 7 VM in trouble

comment:11 Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

I don't know if this is important or not:

I installed a new Windows 7 Ultimate VM in english to be able to provide english screenshots and error messages. The installation went just fine, all updates installed, everything else ok.

Then I created the "7basede" VM which is in trouble now.

The errors I've seen before are all inside the german edition of 7 Ultimate.

Kinda weird, but can also just be a pure coincidence.

After the Installation of Windows 7 copied all files from the DVD to the harddrive and rebooted, it produced a blue screen during stage 2 of the installation and did a reset. After that one can read "The installation failed somewhere in the installation process, please reboot and run the installation again" on the monitor.

Rebooting from the harddrive doesn't help, so the only way is to redo the complete installation.

Powering the VM down and starting it again to run the install produced the following while it was copying the files over:

Looks pretty much the same to me.

As I can now reproduce it for the moment, I'll try to run the same VM but with the english installation media.

English install media, same VM

Running Memtest86 inside the vm doesn't give any errors. See attachment.

I've ran another Windows 7 Ultimate x64 installation:

After the system has booted for the first time, I installed the guest additions and on the reboot I got a blue screen. I've got the memory dump file, so FWIW: if it would help you, I can upload it somewhere and you can analyze it. (It's about 256mb in size).

I also figured out that the only difference of the VM is that the german version does NOT include SP1.

The Windows 7 Ultimate installation is still downloading Updates at 0%.

Network connectivity is given. In the logs it shows an error message that an installer application has died. And IMHO that's the reason why the update service hangs. Happens on a regular basis.

comment:17 Changed 14 months ago by frank

Any reason why you enabled large pages for that VM? That feature is disabled by default because it makes Linux systems very slow if a large page is not available. That could explain the page allocation problems.

comment:18 Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

I created a reference machine on OS X and used those settings. Maybe that's why it's set.

I'll disable it and report back.

comment:19 Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

Didn't really help, had multiple of the already known errors in dmesg and the machine crashed.

One could connect to it via remote desktop, but all you see is a part of the screen and a "red bar" at the top of the screen. Reminded me a bit of "guru meditation" from the old A500 Amiga.

Should I post the errors in dmesg anyway?

Large pages are off on all VMs and the machine has been rebooted.

Still the same on the linux machine.

Tmux died a few times in the last 12 hours.

comment:21 Changed 14 months ago by frank

Please again attach a VBox.log file of such a VM session together with a file containing the dmesg errors.

Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

VBox.Log for the latest entry

comment:22 Changed 14 months ago by Grimeton

Just sitting here and tmux crashed in front of my eyes.

No segfault message, nothing in the guest's dmesg or somewhere else. Not even a coredump. And on the host I see this:

Same Machine as before

Something new:

I upgraded the Ubuntu Kernel to a more "vanilla" version "Linux ozone 3.8.2-030802-generic #201303031906 SMP Mon Mar 4 00:07:09 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux" after seeing weird behavior in other places like not freeing NDP caches and resetting connections. VirtualBox is still 4.2.8 and the extension pack is still 4.2.0 (yeah, I'll upgrade).

So far it works for me (TM). And it also seems that the Windows errors just made their way from the faulty installation on the Linux machine over to the Macs and Windows after I copied them over. So what I think is that the faulty install was the cause for all those problems.

I will keep an eye on it as I had similar issues before, but so far I'd say it is "fixed".

Thanks again for the support!

Hi, the same (in terms of stack trace in kernel log of host) is still happening with 4.2.16 on an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS host machine running Windows 7 (or a Hackintosh OSX) in a VirtualBox. Although I see no problems in the VM itsself, the problem seems to happen once in a while. I have seen no slowdown, but the errors make me nervous, especially because the problem may cause bigger issues on the host machine later (so I try to reboot it when this happens), which is not nice.

The Ubuntu kernel is 3.2.0-51-generic (64 bits).

With the newer Ubuntu 12.04 kernel (Linux 3.8) this happens all the time, the dmesg log is full of this stack trace (so I reverted to the 3.2.0 kernel).

Here is the stack trace:

What else is needed to make a fix for that? Especially as the problem occurs all the time with newer Linux kernels (3.8).
