Re: [Xen-devel] Memory allocation with rebooted HVM


We had encountered this problem in the past with blkback and with the SCSI disks being iSCSI. The page's had a page-reference that would never decrement and the guest would stay in its zombie state. I've posted a patch some-time ago:


that can help troubleshoot if this is indeed this type of failure.

Thanks for the patch. It looks like Stefano posted a patch this morning that hopefully will take care of the issue with a restart of xend, but if it doesn't work, I'll apply yours during a full-blown maintenance event (right now, unfortunately, maintenance events are rather disruptive because the domUs have to be shut down completely -- http://bugzilla.xensource.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1521)

If it matters, I am using file: on RAID10 with standard SATA drives.
