Ticket #3129 (closed defect: duplicate)
Solaris 64-bit guests pegging core @ 100% after attempting to log in
|Reported by:||jorgie||Owned by:|
I have a couple of 64-bit Solaris 10 VMs (one Update 3, one Update 4) installed on an OpenSolaris 2008.11 host. If I just boot the VMs up and leave them for a couple of hours (sometimes less; the time seems to vary), when I attempt to log in to them (ssh or 'console') they 'lock up' and each one pegs one of my Sun Ultra 20's cores @ 100%. The VMs were doing nothing but sitting idle at the time.
I have observed this with VirtualBox 2.1.2, 2.1.0, 2.0.6... I have tried starting with VMs with and without VRDP enabled. I have tried starting with VMs with and without using VBoxHeadless (both with and without VRDP enabled). I have observed the same behaviour with the host running Solaris 10 update 5 (5/08). I have observed this with and without the VBox guest additions installed. I have observed this with only 1 VM running or both. Each is configured for 1.6 GB of RAM on my 4GB host.
I have attached the log file as well as pstack and a few seconds of truss output from when the VBox process is pegging the core.
Incidentally, a colleague has been running a 32-bit Windows XP guest on his Solaris 10 Update 5 Ultra 20 for a couple of months straight without issue (VBox 2.0.6, I believe). His Operton CPU is older does not have AMD-v.
