Ticket #6472 (closed defect: fixed)
vboxdrv runs kernel out of memory
|Reported by:||daryll||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
It appears that performing a lot of network traffic with the host computer while a VirtualBox image is running can cause the kernel to run out of memory.
Running latest Fedora 12
Running Fedora 11
- Export a file system from the host computer
- Mount the file system on a non-guest computer
- Write a bunch of files to the file system from the non-guest
Eventually the host computer starts to crash as the slab fails to allocate memory. Repeated the test three times and reproduced the problem each time. Stopped running the virtual machine and ran the same test and it worked fine.
I'm attaching one of the oops' when this happened.
