    SubjectRe: Kernel hangs in SMP + VMware environment.
    Date
    maybe related to http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9834  ?

    you say "recent" , so this does happen from 2.6.21 to 2.6.26rc2 ?
    does that happen only on a dedicated vmware box, or on different ones?
    vmware-tools active? ->stop -> different ?

    could you provide some more information about your hardware/vmware
    environment ?
    does that happen on esx or on hosted products (workstation, server,
    player..) ?

    regards

    I'm experiencing hang up problem with recent kernels in VMware environment.

    Here are two examples.

    http://I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp/tmp/messages.1 (203kB)
    http://I-love.SAKURA.ne.jp/tmp/messages.2 (1.7MB)

    The messages.1 is a log when "tar" stopped processing
    while extracting a .tar.bz2 file by
    "rpmbuild -bb --target i586 --with baseonly kernel.spec".
    I got this log in runlevel 3 of Fedora 8.

    The messages.2 is a log when the compiler processes (e.g. "cc1")
    seem to be hanged up (no compiler messages appear for minutes,
    which unlikely happen).
    I got this log in runlevel 1 of Fedora 8
    by "rpmbuild -bb --target i586 --with baseonly kernel.spec"
    after starting rsyslog and stopping anacron.

    I experience this problem in many distro (e.g. Fedora, Ubuntu, SuSE),
    which use kenel (I think) around 2.6.21 and later.

    I experience this problem only in VMware.
    I have never experienced this problem in native environment.

    I experience this problem only when I assign 2 CPUs to VMware.
    I have never experienced this problem with 1 CPU.

    May be something scheduler related in SMP + VMware environment.

    The a.out process in the log files are http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/5/12/130
    What other information should I dump for identifying the location of hang
    up?

    Regards.
