Description Martin Poole 2007-05-18 10:27:09 EDT
Description of problem:

When a domain crash then if xend cannot dump-core memory of the domain,
the domain is not destroyed, so xend try to dump-core it
every time run "xm list" or xenwatch.
These retry fail if the disk is full, so this issue is occurred.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure "dump-enable yes"
2. arrange for /var/lib/xen/dump to have insufficient space.
3. destroy or crash a domain
Actual results:

incomplete core is created on crash and every subsequent xm command.

Expected results:

Core or no core.

Additional info:

This is fixed in an upstream patch (something similar to which is in the F7 xen)

Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2007-05-18 10:44:51 EDT
Patch looks sane, although it does not apply to current RHEL5 Xen tree. After a
cursory glance, it should be fairly simple to re-diff it though.

Fujitsu confirmed this issue was gone by 5.1 beta.

I confirmed this issue is fixed in RHEL5.1 beta.
