Re: [Xen-devel] blocking Xen 3.X production use: soft lockup bugs

When this happens, does it just effect one guest?

We typically see error messages on only one guest's console, but other
guests and dom0 tend to lock up for ~30 seconds as well.

Do you have serial access to any of these systems. It'd be interesting to get some debug output from Xen during one of these 'outages' and see what it thinks the CPU is doing (e.g., the 'q' and 'd' debug keys would be interesting).
