virtualbox consumes all CPU -> IO-APIC

Reported by: brian Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VMM
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

I have installed the PUEL 1.5.6 version from your download site and have a WindowsXP guest running on a Ubuntu Gutsy Linux host. The guest runs fine except for two issues:

  1. Mouse integration does not work. Virtualbox thinks that it should. I get the two little

green arrows on the mouse, however any mouse activity in the guest window makes the guest's mouse cursor simply move in a down-and-to-the-right diagonal line. There is a direct correlation to mouse events and mouse cursor movement in the guest -- that is, even though the mouse cursor in the guest only moves in a diagonal-down-and-right line, it only moves in that direction when I generate mouse events by moving my mouse.

  1. VirtualBox consumes 100% of a CPU, while it runs this guest, even when the WindowsXP guest is

idle. I've straced the VirtualBox process while this is happening and there seems to be an extraordinary number of ioctls to the file descriptor that the VirtualBox process has open to the vboxdrv driver. I posted to the mailing list about this and the strace details can be found in that posting.

comment:1 Changed 6 years ago by brian

I attempted to use oprofile the other day on my Ubunut Gutsy box to find out where all of this CPU usage is happening but it would seem that the combination of oprofile and VirtualBox causes my machine to spontaneously reboot. I don't have a serial console on it yet to see what the problem is exactly, but when I do, I will update this ticket.

Any ideas in the meanwhile are much welcome.

comment:2 Changed 6 years ago by brian

Just to keep this issue accurately detailed, I have upgraded to the PUEL 1.6.0 release and the same problems occur. I wonder if oprofile will at least work. I will update here if it does.

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by brian

Hrm. 1.6.0 is in fact worse. Mouse integration doesn't work, but never did in 1.5.6 -- I had to disable the mouse integration and explicitly click in the window to get the mouse in the guest.

But in 1.6.0 when I click in the guest window it appears that the guest gets the focus, but there is neither a mouse pointer in the guest nor can I click anything to select it, nor does the keyboard seem to do anything.

comment:4 follow-up: ↓ 5 Changed 6 years ago by frank

So the mouse integration is enabled in the WinXP guest and you updated the additions to 1.6.0, right? Please could you attach the VBox.log file?

comment:5 in reply to: ↑ 4 Changed 6 years ago by brian

Replying to frank:

So the mouse integration is enabled in the WinXP guest

Hrm. I believe so. I don't think I recall doing anything specific to enable them on either this troubled host or another where everything is working fine (1.5.6)

and you updated the additions to 1.6.0, right?

And herein lies the rub. When the mouse integration didn't work my first thought was to upgrade the guest additions to 1.6.0. But without a working mouse or even keyboard (i.e. accelerator) I can't install the new guest additions.

Please could you attach the VBox.log file?

I'd love to. But a reset (no other way to shut down winxp without a mouse or keyboard) has left me with a winxp that hangs on the splash screen, where it's always hung for a few 10s of seconds longer than it should, but now it does not seem to get past that. Might if I leave it long enough. ~sigh~

Last few entries in the log are:

Did you install this WinXP guest with VirtualBox or with another VMM? Or are you trying to boot a raw partition of your host?

Even if you had to reset your VM the logfile of the last session should be still available. Just go to the main VM selector window, select the Machine menu and click on Show Log ... There should be up to four VBox.log files available, if in doubt just attach every file to this defect. Please attach the complete file(s).

Replying to frank:

Did you install this WinXP guest with VirtualBox or with another VMM? Or are you trying to boot a raw partition of your host?

It's a raw partition installation that was done natively on the machine. Apart from the CPU pegging and the the flaky mouse integration, it has worked previously with 1.5.6.

Even if you had to reset your VM the logfile of the last session should be still available. Just go to the main VM selector window, select the Machine menu and click on Show Log ... There should be up to four VBox.log files available, if in doubt just attach every file to this defect. Please attach the complete file(s).

Ah, yes. Sweet. I will attach the .1 revision.

Oh, BTW: since you are now Sun it might interest you to know that this XP image is the new Sun corporate image that you get with new hardware and that ITops is encouraging everyone to upgrade (I use the term upgrade loosely since there is no real upgrade option -- it wipes your disk and installs fresh via an "image lay down") to.

At least I cannot see any obvious problem in the VBox.log.

Replying to frank:

Hrm. Yeah.

So now I have a winxp that won't boot past the splash screen, during fade in. I had booted safe mode and the last thing it showed was the agp440.sys driver loading so I:

$ sudo mv /mnt/windows/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/AGP440.SYS{,.old}

(of course only after stopping windows and mounting the disk -- and unmounting it when I was done) and it booted safe mode to a login prompt again, but I could not get past the required domain login. So I shutdown/rebooted again and again it's stuck at the winxp splash screen during the fade in. ~sigh~

comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by brian

Just to keep the ball rolling here, an upgrade to the 1.6.2 from the sun download center does not seem to have fixed anything. Now I am on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) and having the same old problems.

First boot worked as much as it has in the past. Booted up to Windows XP with a pause at the WinXP spash fade in and then mouse integration was not working.

I tried to install the 1.6.2 guest additions and it wanted to uninstall the 1.5.6 ones first, which I let it do, and it wanted a reboot after that uninstall, which I let it do also, and now it's hanging on boot up again, right in the middle of the spash fade in.

CPU is always at 100% of a single core. Still.

Is there no desire at all to debug this?

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by brian

I want to add, when it's stuck at the winxp splash fade in and chewing, the virtualbox process is in a tight loop of doing

As you could probably guess, FD 3 is:

VirtualBo 20433 brian    3u   CHR      10,62          3305635 /dev/vboxdrv

I'm not yet positive of the requirement, but it's seeming like I have to unload and reload the vboxdrv module between boots of this WinXP guest.

comment:12 follow-up: ↓ 14 Changed 6 years ago by frank

This ioctl just means that VBox switches very often to the guest. It seems that some of your WinXP guest application, probably one service of the guest additions, is using your whole CPU. Any chance to remove the guest additions with booting in safe mode? Try to remove all VBox stuff from the guest hard disk and from the registry. Does it make a difference if the guest additions are completely removed?

comment:13 Changed 6 years ago by brian

I think it's worth adding at this point, that something I have seen in the log a number of times while booting this winxp is this:

This doesn't look too normal, nor good.

I think it's worth noting that this 100% CPU usage starts as soon as the guest starts. Even with WinXP sitting at the "hardware profile" choice menu, the guest is chewing up 100% CPU.

Nope.

I wonder what the chances are of trying to use oprofile on VirtualBox on Hardy are or whether it will crash the host O/S as it did no Gutsy.

comment:15 Changed 6 years ago by brian

OK. Cool. oprofile seems to be working on Hardy. From just a few minutes of my WinXP guest sitting at the hardware profile selection menu here is what overall system performance looks like:

comment:16 Changed 6 years ago by brian

I want to add to this ticket, that it appears that the problem has nothing to do with the guest OS as a Ubuntu Linux guest on this same machine exhibits this same problem -- pegged CPU.

comment:17 Changed 6 years ago by frank

  • Component changed from other to VMM

comment:18 Changed 5 years ago by brian

You know, I did quite a bit of work/research into this problem almost a year ago and nobody seems to have taken any notice.

This is still a problem now on 2.1.4 and has always been a problem through every version I have upgraded.

I want to re-iterate, even a Linux guess sitting at a GRUB prompt, doing nothing, waiting for input will consume over 100% of a single core on a dual core machine.

Surely this is not normal and expected.

comment:19 Changed 5 years ago by brian

As an additional data point. Two VMs, one running the above, do-nothing-sitting-at-a-GRUB-prompt task and the other running WindowsXP will each consume the equivalent of a single core in a dual core system. So yes, that's two VMs consuming all of the CPU cycles in a dual core system. One of the VMs isn't even doing anything.

comment:20 Changed 5 years ago by brian

Surely debugging a VM using up 100% of a single core doing nothing (like just sitting at a GRUB prompt) must not be terribly difficult. It's entirely easy to see that the guest O/S is not what is causing the problem, yes?

comment:21 follow-up: ↓ 22 Changed 5 years ago by sandervl73

It doesn't help to jump to conclusions here. Afaik GRUB doesn't play nice and just burns CPU cycles. Same with DOS guests without some special TSR that executes hlt when doing nothing.

I'd hardly say this is a major problem if all you tested was grub.

Look, I'm just adding additional data points in the absence of anyone commenting on any of my last 3 or 4 posts (before today). Nobody even said "none of that helps us, here's what would help us..."

I'd hardly say this is a major problem if all you tested was grub.

Did you read the whole ticket? I have done a heck of a lot more testing than just with GRUB. Windows XP is the main subject of my complaint, but the problem is you always get somebody saying "oh, well there must be some process in WinXP that eating up CPU, like a virus scanner or something" so I am trying to find a way to prove (or disprove) that the guest o/s is not the CPU eating culprit. So far, I have found no way at all to not have my VM eating 100% of a core, constantly.

If sitting at a GRUB prompt is not a satisfactory test, then why don't you suggest a test I can do to prove (or disprove) that an otherwise idle guest still results in 100% usage of a core. What would a guest have to be doing to satisfy you that it's really idle and exerting no pressure on the VM at all?

The problem is the IO-APIC. That kills performance with 32 bits guests. Did you migrate a VMWare image? Anyway, check  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Migrate_Windows for information on how to switch the HAL to a non-IO-APIC version.

As for the age of the bug. It's unfortunate that I didn't see it before, but we get a lot of bug reports coming in and I have a lot of work to do as well.

Ahhhh! Now we are getting somewhere!

Did you migrate a VMWare image?

No, but I am using an image installed on a physical partition that was installed on the raw hardware, so I am most likely falling victim to this IO-APIC problem.

Anyway, check  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Migrate_Windows for information on how to switch the HAL to a non-IO-APIC version.

The problem is, I don't have "official media". This is a Sun ITOPS issued laptop and they send out their own install CDs. Is there any other way other than doing a "Repair Installation" from a Windows CD to change the HAL to using the non-IO-APIC version?

And what does changing that mean for running the same Windows on the real hardware (not that I can recall the last time I did that, but good to know anyway)?

There are some hints in the linked MS page. As for side effects when booting the physical system, that's hard to say. It shouldn't, but a different irq allocation strategy might trigger problems. You can probably create different hardware profiles to deal with this, but don't ask me how. :)

And the winner is sandervl73!

Changing my WinXP to use the non-IO-APIC HAL has fixed my problem. VB CPU usage hovers in the 30% range now (when the guest o/s is idle), occasionally dipping down to the 20s even.

I found  this extremely helpful in changing the HAL. I wonder if the steps it takes can be integrated into the Guest Additions process. Likely there would want to be the creation of a new hardware profile, so I don't know how feasible that is really.

At least, the  Windows Migration wiki page could point to that video, or re-document the steps.

Please feel free to close this bug with the reason "Happy Camper" if you wish. :-)

I'll mark this as a duplicate of #638. What you propose is a bit too much work. Instead a simple warning from the GUI might be useful.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Summary changed from virtualbox consumes all CPU to virtualbox consumes all CPU -> IO-APIC
