Time runs slow inside the guest machine

Reported by: cbredi Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Solaris


Host is 64-bit Solaris 10 5/08 s10x_u5wos_10 X86.

Time inside guests runs slow, minutes to hours behind host's time.

Tested with:

  • CentOS 5.2 i686 and x86_64. Guest additions help a little bit, also adding --interval 1 to vboxadd-timesync. Tried also with clocksource=pit, clocksource=acpi_pm kernel parameters. Tried to disable ACPI support. Same results with hardware virtualization on or off
  • FreeBSD 7.1 amd64 - huge time delay
  • Windows 7 Beta (32-bit) time runs fine

No time delay noted when running same Linux and FreeBSD Machines cloned on a different host (Solaris 10 10/08 s10x_u6wos_07b X86, 32-bit).

In VBox.log: TM: Giving up catch-up attempt at a 60004334235 ns lag; new total: 60004334235 ns (attached)
