Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1000158
blnsrv.exe is pegged at 100% cpu in windows guests
Last modified: 2014-01-01 11:35:15 EST
Description of problem:
In some windows 7 and XP guests, blnsrv.exe is pegged at 100% cpu usage. Killing this process in the task manager gets the VM to normal.
There are no errors reported in the logs.
Have asked Customer to disable this service altogether.
Why is this process using 100% cpu? What information can we get to find out the reason?
How do we proceed?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am attaching the qemu VM logs for the VMs in question for information on qemu command line.
We have requested the Customer for the output of the remaining commands.
Will upload it as soon as we get them.
blnsrv.exe which is used for memory statistis is *not* officially supported in RHEL6 according to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=798139 .And Virt-QE do not testing the driver/app we do not support
So we should remove it from rhev-guest-tools-iso .
should be fixed in build 70
I can not reproduce this issue on virtio-win-prewhql-65
1.Start VM on RHEVM3.2
Guest works fine
Vadim ,Could you view my steps above ? Any idea how can I reproduce this bug ?

I have no idea, which additional steps should be taken in order to see
this bug. (I personally have never seen it on any of my systems
In my understanding there was only one reason why we could get 100%
CPU consumption when we fail to get memory statistics and run into
busy loop. I have fixed this problem falling into sleep even in
WMI query has failed. I was thinking that maybe if QE can reproduce
this problem we will be able to perform some sort of live debugging
exercises on this problem.

We have asked the Customer if they are willing to try it in their environment and will provide this version upon their positive response.
Hi Anitha, is there any news from customer? Thanks.

Unfortunately, the Customer has not responded back on our request and the case appears "closed" on account of inactivity for a long period.
I will ask the case owner to reach out the Customer again and check their feedback/response.
There has not been any response from the Customer. Sorry.
