Ticket #1256 (closed defect: fixed)
Linux Guest loses networking under heavy load
|Reported by:||mkostrze||Owned by:|
I have host Mandriva 2007.1 and guest Mandriva 2008.0. I'm using bridged networking in kind of advanced mode. I created private subnetwork for this guest and I'm doing SNAT for it. I can provide any details you may request, but It was working fine with previous versions of VirtualBox.
After upgrading to VirtualBox 1.5.6 I'm experiencing an issue that the guest networking just stops working, and it usually happens when the heavier network load was generated to it (I have a web server on the guest and the network stops working on the guest when handling multiple connections)
Stops working = the guest and host network devices are up, the tap device on the host is still connected to the br device, but connecting out and from the guest is impossible. Restarting the networking on the guest does not help. Restarting the whole guest by invoking 'reboot' command does not help. Only one thing that helps is to stop the guest and cold-start it from VirtualBox.
I tried both e1000 and pcnet32 driver.
Is there any log I can enable / any experiment to do / any more info I can provide?
