Description Joseph Szczypek 2007-04-13 22:26:31 UTC
Description of problem: Fully-virtualized guest (HVM) is exhibiting odd behavior. The following has been observed: -"illegal instruction" when trying to unmount a filesystem -"illegal instruction" when trying to run a setup script -Build of a test fail because a header file was not available - the directory was not readable. -Not being able to write to a file. The problem does not occur consistently. Rebooting the guest may make the problem go away. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Medium. Sometimes I see one problem, the afte reboot it may be gone. Another may manifest itself Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install a fully-virtualized guest 2. Use it to do things Actual results: Odd behavior at times Expected results: No odd behavior Additional info: rx6600 with 8 cores, 96GB memory. Fully-virt guest installed to a physical drive. It had 1 vCPU and 8GB of memory.

Can you provide some info on the software versions: - kernel-xen for the Dom0 host - xen for the Dom0 host - What OS is being used as the guest ? Can you also attach the /etc/xen config file associated with the guest, and /var/log/xen/xend.log & xend-debug.log. Finally, capture the output of 'xm dmesg' & attach it
Comment 2 Joseph Szczypek 2007-04-17 18:02:32 UTC
kernel-xen is 2.6.18-8.1.1.el5xen vmm=xen.gz-2.6.18-8.1.1.el5xen I have run guest with RHEL5 2.6.18-8.el5 and 2.6.18-8.1.1.el5 I will send additional info shortly.

Comment 7 Ronald Pacheco 2007-07-26 15:22:27 UTC
Do we have a relaible method of reproducting this problem?
Comment 8 Joseph Szczypek 2007-07-26 18:03:30 UTC
There were no specific set of actions I was doing on the guest running RHEL5.0 which made the issues appear. One thing to note is that the guests which exhibited issues were 8GB or 4GB in size. I also did some "very limited" work with a 1GB guest and did not run into the issues during the short period of time I was working with it.

Reproducer required to confirm this issue exists in 5.1. If the above errors are not seen in 5.1 beta testing, please close this BZ.

(In reply to comment #9) > Reproducer required to confirm this issue exists in 5.1. If the above errors > are not seen in 5.1 beta testing, please close this BZ. I have rerun AIM7 with all four workloads (fserver, dbase, compute, shared) with a 1VCPU, 8GB, 3 disk fully-virt guest; a 1VCPU, 32000MB, 3 disk FV guest; and a 4VCPU, 32000MB, 3 disk FV guest. I am no longer running into any of the problems mentioned earlier in this bugzilla. Guests were running RHEL5.1 Beta 1 (2.6.18-36.el5) Dom0 was running RHEL5.1 Beta 1 (2.6.18-36.el5xen) Xen rev is 3.1.0-36.el5 Guest FW is from xen-ia64-guest-firmware-1.0.11-1 package
