Re: [Xen-users] Lenny DomU crash!

I'm getting the same thing - DomU runs fine for weeks or months, but then our monitoring system tells us it's down. From the outside, it's 'dead' - doesn't respond to pings or anything. From Dom0 we can connect to the console (xm console <guestname>) and get the last few pages of output - but there's nothing unusual logged (just a load of Shorewall log lines which is normal). The guest is absolutely dead to the console as well.

xentop reports that teh guest is taking 100% cpu.

All I can do is kill it and restart it.

Almost all my guests are Debian Lenny, installed with debbootstrap and then cloned. Some have never done it (yet !), others have done it two or three times over the last few months.

Dom0 runs 2.6.18-6-xen-686
Guests run 2.6.18-5-xen-vserver-686 or 2.6.18-6-xen-686 - both have guests that have never crashed, both have guests that have.
