Ticket #8085 (closed defect: fixed)
disk i/o locks up execution of guest for a long time
|Reported by:||yrro||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Occasionally, when I save a file in vim in my guest (Debian running Linux 2.6.32), the VM will lock up for ~20 seconds while the disk I/O is performed. After that time, everything continues executing normally.
When this happens, the following kernel messages are logged -- see comment 1.
There is nothing in the VirtualBox log for the VM.
Please note, this is not a duplicate of #7858; in this bug, the guest returns after the delay, during which disk I/O is indicated in the disk activity status indicator; in the other bug, the guest never responds, and the indicator is not lit.
