virtualbox crashes on windows on heavy load

Description

I'm running VirtualBox 1.5.4 on Windows XP with a Debian Guest in it. I've attached my USB HDD to the Guest and am able to access it.

I'm using SSH Portforwarding to execute gtk-gnutella, a torrent application, from the guest to the host. When gtk-gnutella does heavy I/O on the guest in the USB HDD, VirtualBox crashes with an error in virtualboxd.dll This is immediate, in around 1-2 minutes. If I don't execute the app and just let the guest remain idle, it keeps running and nothing crashes.

We fixed several bugs in VirtualBox 1.5.6 which could be related to your problem. Please could you try this version.

Just checked it. VirtualBox still crashes. Do you have a Debug Build? It'll be easier for me to help you with the exact root-cause of the bug.

We don't have debug build available for the public but you could

  • provide a minidump
  • try to build the SVN version

Please could you provide a VBox.log file of a crashed VM session as well?

How do I take a minidump when Virtual Box crashes ?

Since the crash was consistent, I moved to host filesystem feature, where you attach a directory from the host and access in the guest. I was able to crash it sometimes, but not as consistently as was with directly accessing the USB device from the guest.

I think, for me, the P2P application gtk-gnutella has been very good in generating heavy I/O and make the system crash. Maybe you can try this app in your testcases.

Next time Virtual Box crashes, I'll make sure I retain a copy ob VBox.log file.

Is this problem still relevant with 1.6.4?
