3.1.0_BETA2 r55019 Guru Meditation

Postby s34gull » 23. Nov 2009, 22:00

Running 3.1.0_BETA2 r55019 on Ubuntu 9.04 (32 bit) Host, with Windows XP SP3 Guest. I noticed a few Guru Meditations with Beta1 and reverted back to 3.0.10 (after having issues with 3.0.12, but that would be another thread). I installed Beta2 this morning, and the VM seemed stable for about 4 hours or so, but after a period of inactivity (developing in Eclipse in Ubuntu) I noticed that the VM had entered Guru Meditation. The log file is attached.

Hmm, do you have any idea where the error messages in the log come from? Seems your .vdi files could not be opened successfully?

That is what confuses me. This particular VM has three VDI files: 1) WinXP boot disk with OS and Programs (C:\); 2) data disk (E:\); 3) swap disk (S:\). 1 and 2 are stored on an ext4 USB 2.0 drive; 3 is on the ext3 formatted boot drive of the laptop (so that the swap file is theoretically not competing for USB bandwidth).

When running with VirtualBox 3.0.10, I've never seen this issue. With 3.0.12 I had the host freeze several times - so I reverted to 3.0.10. With 3.1.0_BETA 1 & 2, I've received the Guru Meditation notification multiple times. Nothing out of the ordinary was going on with storage or disk access at the host level - all drives were mounted. I do have an rsync backup script that runs at ~18 min after the hour, which hits the internal drive pretty hard as it tries to determine which files have changed for backup. I suppose this may be related - but from what I remember, the VM hung when this script was not running. Again - with 3.0.x I've never had VDI access issues (not sure if the codebase was modified as relates to File I/O).
