Virtualbox.exe Process Consuming All Memory
|Reported by:||mdmadph||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.0.6||Keywords:||memory, ubuntu|
Using an Ubuntu 9.10 guest.
Had IO APIC turned on so that I could give the guest access to two cores. Also had VT-x turned on.
The Virtualbox.exe started consuming all memory on my host system -- before I killed it, it had consumed about 700MB of memory (it usually sits around 100).
Turning off IO APIC and VT-x seems to stop the Virtualbox.exe process from running away with the memory.
