Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239813
Dom0 page cache fills up during guest I/O & hangs on guest reboot after install

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
I guess what we really need is a virt-install component in bugzilla? Or is it
built from the virt-manager source rpm and I guessed right?
This really should be kernel-xen actually - the subject was not changed when
the bug was cloned. See the first comment for details of the problem with page
cache filling up during guest I/O, despite block backends using O_DIRECT.

This request was previously evaluated by Red Hat Product Management
for inclusion in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release, but
Red Hat was unable to resolve it in time. This request will be
reviewed for a future Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
The IT here was closed, and I'm pretty sure this is now fixed. If this is not
the case, please re-open.
I think this may be similar to what we are seeing on Guest OS installs onto a RedHat 5.8 Host. After the install of the guest is completed you are asked to reboot. When the Guest does go down for the intitial reboot, it stays down and never comes up. You must manually click the Run button to have the Guest come up the first time. After that the Guest can be rebooted/shutdown just fine.
