host freezes when network load is high

Hello, my friends.

I use a virtual machine to work while I stay in quarantine. Periodically I faced with heisenbug when my host machine freezes. I had no idea why this was happening. But today I was able to reproduce the steps that lead to freezing.

So, what I have. VBox: 6.1.8 Host: win 7 x64 Motherboard: ASUS AC97 rev.2 Host disk: SSD Plextor PX-128M6S Host network card: Realtek PCIe GBE (pci\ven_10ec&dev_8168&subsys_85051043&rev_09)

Guest: win 7 x64 Guest virtual network: Bridge / Intel pro 1000MT Desktop Virtual disk: VHD / AHCI / i/o caching enabled Virtual chipset: ICH9 / i/o apic enabled

What I do. When I try to download a large file (e.g. 1 GB) then after a while the guest and the host system freezes.. absolutely )))

What could be the real cause of freezing

  • bridged network adapter,
  • i/o caching, scaling virtual disk,
  • or chipset ...

I don't know, but I tried a dozen variants of parameters, and all the same, periodically it happens..
