Hard hang on OpenSolaris
|Reported by:||RoyK||Owned by:|
I have been using VirtualBox with OpenSolaris 111b (2009.06) for some months, and after first fixing an issue with insufficient memory on the host, I thought the problems were solved by that. It seems, however, that this was not really the case alone. At times, random times it may look like, the whole host OS hangs. This may happen with one guest or with more (though no more than four concurrent guests have been tested on this system.) If attached to the console (VGA, keyboard) I can somehow get in contact with the system, but it seems stuck at 100% load and unable to do anything but spin. Interestingly, this problems seems to have been much worse after upgrading to 3.1.6. I had some time lag on guests, so I wanted to try to upgrade. The time lag disappeard, but the hangs are now very common. All guests are all Linux machines (32bit Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server) using bridged network and local storage on ZFS. There are no entries as far as I can tell in the OpenSolaris logs, and I would be deeply grateful for a solution on this. It really makes vbox quite unusable for anything but playing and annoying for that as well.
The box is a SuperMicro box with 4 gigs of RAM and a dual core Intel CPU sitting on two drives in ZFS mirror. As mentioned, the problems got worse after upgrading to 3.1.6. However, they did not get any better after downgrading back to 3.1.4, so I' quite lost about how to fix this. I'll deeply appreciante hints on how to solve this.
