Description andy prowse 2007-05-29 14:40:19 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Running either hts or applying updates causes DomU to go 100% CPU busy and the
console is unresponsive.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create 64 bit Xen guest (i.e. use steps from hts)
2. Run hts certify, or yum -y update
3. DomU will become 100% CPU bust and unresponsive
Actual results:

DomU will become 100% CPU bust and unresponsive

Expected results:

Completion of tests/updates.

Additional info:

System works OK in 32 bit testing.

H/W Fujitsu S7110 Notebook
2 GB and 4 GB RAM tested
Intel T7200 Core 2 Duo

Reran certification test on notebook.  DomU froze after 15 minutes.

I had an iostat and top running in terminals, and both stopped responding. No
useful information on either.

No messages in /var/log/messages

I will be happy to run any monitor script that you provide.

Performing hardware cert on another Fujitsu notebook, the E8410:

T7300 Intel Core 2 Duo
VT enabled

Same issue, DomU freezes during certification with CPU at 100% busy 

32 bit OK, 64 bit freezes.

System was updated to latest available updates  on 26JUN07

xen logs - 64 bit

Here are the xen logs from the failed attempts at h/w certification under RHEL5
64 bit.

I believe that you are attempting to use a RHEL-5 Fully virtualized guest; is
that correct?  If so, I think this is the same issue as BZ 234160.  In that
case, this issue should be fixed by 5.1.  Can you please confirm that this is
indeed what you are attempting?

Yes, my issue appears to be a duplicate of 234160.
Comment 10 Chris Lalancette 2007-07-05 07:51:11 EDT
OK, thanks for clarifying.  I'm going to close this out as a duplicate of that bug.
