Ticket #5489 (new defect)
high-bandwidth multicast traffic
|Reported by:||stefaan||Owned by:|
When I generate a lot of multicast traffic (500mbps) from some host on the network to a virtual machine with a virtual e1000 (over the software network bridge), the network on my virtual machine hangs after a couple of seconds. All hosts (virtual and non-virtual) are running Debian Lenny. The physical host gives kernel stack traces in its kernel ring buffer that seem to be related.
The physical host is a four-core Intel Core2 which can handle the multicast traffic in the host os. The virtual host is a four-core as well, with a virtual e1000.
I will attach the kernel ring buffer log.
