Windows 7 32bit hangs after 30 Minutes on Hardy x86-64 Host

Reported by: broth Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 3.2.10 Keywords: windows 7 hang
Cc: Guest type: Windows

Description

I have VirtualBox 3.1.2 running on a updated Ubuntu Hardy x86-64 host. Windows 7 32bit is installed as guest, guest-additions installed and up-to-date.

Problem: Around 30 Minutes after starting the VM the VirtualBox-Process is consuming 200% CPU (2 cores) and the guest hangs.

Attached the VBox.log

I didn't know how to make a new thread so i wrote here. We have VB 3.1.2 running on Gentoo host and Windows 2008 server as guest. all this on Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5420. We tried with one cpu and 2 cores enabled, cpu load was fine and we could run several processes in Windows, but when we enabled 4 cores, after login cpu load became very high and Windows hung. I attached two images and two log files 2 - means with 2 cores, 4 means with four.

  • Component changed from other to guest smp
  • Summary changed from Windows 7 32bit hangs after 30 Minutes on Hardy x86-64 Host to Windows 7 32bit hangs after 30 Minutes on Hardy x86-64 Host -> check with 3.1.4

An important SMP stability fix is included in 3.1.4. Check the forum for downloading 3.1.4 beta 2 if you are interesting in testing.

Tried with 3.1.4 but same issue. As soon more than one CPU's are enabled the guest(-process) hangs with 200% host CPU usage and no reaction. Only powering off is possible.

Could you check if this hang occurs as well if you disable 2D for this VM (see VM settings)?

Any chance to provide a  core dump (see Forcing VirtualBox to terminate with a core dump)? If so, please contact me via private E-mail at _frank_ dot _mehnert _at_ sun _dot_ com.

comment:11 Changed 4 years ago by broth

I did all the steps to enable a core dump but I can't find one in the current directory. I did following:

broth@broth01:~$ /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox --comment Windows 7 --startvm 79e1390b-f23f-4e53-a489-fe77208df49f --no-startvm-errormsgbox & [1] 29306 Now I was waiting until the process hung (200% CPU usage) broth@broth01:~$ kill -4 29306 [1]+ Illegal instruction /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox --comment Windows 7 --startvm 79e1390b-f23f-4e53-a489-fe77208df49f --no-startvm-errormsgbox

ls does not show any core dump in the current directory.

3.2.10 fixes a performance issue with SMP, that sounds the same as the one you're reporting here.
