[libvirt] [Fwd: Re: virsh dump blocking problem]



Hi all,

I think this is the right place to post the problem here. :)
So I forward this mail.

I met and it seems qemu-kvm continues to counting the number of dirty pages
and does no answer to libvirt. Guest never work and I have to kill it.

I met this with 2.6.32+ qemu-0.12.3+ libvirt 0.7.7.1.
When I updated the host kernel to 2.6.33, qemu-kvm never work. So, I moved
back to fedora12's latest qemu-kvm.

Now, 2.6.34-rc3+ qemu-0.11.0-13.fc12.x86_64 + libvirt 0.7.7.1
# virsh dump xxxx xxxx 
hangs.

In most case, I see following 2 back trace.(with gdb)

And see no dump progress.

I'm sorry if this is not a hang but just verrrrry slow. I don't see any
progress at lease for 15 minutes and qemu-kvm continues to use 75% of cpus.
I'm not sure why "dump" command trigger migration code...

How long it takes to do "virsh dump xxx xxxx", an idle VM with 2G memory ?
I'm sorry if I ask wrong mailing list.

Thanks,
-Kame
