What kind of tests do the iometer instances run? Network? Disk? Both?
Was a vnc viewer connected while running the tests?

only Disk testing . read/write, QD from 1 to 32.
and vnc is connecting during whole test.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously denied for the current release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The error has been fixed and this
request has been re-proposed for the current release.
Not sure if it is fixable, MS has a watch dog timer, if the host is too loaded we won't be schedule the guests fast enough. We need to find the registry setting to disable it and state that over release notes (similar of rhel6 as well)
Please try disabling the display watchdog.
