xfce exits and restarts virtual machine to text menu?!

Since 1.4.112818 Artica provides Q.O.S management trough it's interface
quality of service (QoS) refers to resource reservation control mechanisms rather than the achieved service quality. Quality of service is the ability to provide different priority to different applications, users, or data flows, or to guarantee a certain level of performance to a data flow

xfce exits and restarts virtual machine to text menu?!

New postby chris_c_ » Mon Jan 24, 2011 9:50 pm

This has happened probably 5 times:

The xfce exits, shutdown/restarts the machine, and brings me to the text menu (where you have to enter Q to login...)

I am running the artica (ISO) machine inside VirtualBox. It is update to the current nightly version.

Is it a scheduled reboot because of automatic artica update nightly?

Is it a sign of something that is not right?

Why is it restarting like this?

I think there is some kernel hangs
the only way that force artica to reboot is when kernel write in syslog
Code: Select all
kernel:.+?Out of memory:\s+kill\s+process\s

Code: Select all
kernel:.+?ata.+?status:\s+{\s+DRDY


check artica events in "system" context, you will see if artica have decided to reboot the system caused by a kernel crash

"hard disk problem: reboot action performed"

also...

"Warning only 896MB will be used.
Use a HIGHMEM enabled kernel.
896MB LOWMEM available."

How to install a highmem enabled kernel ?

Code: Select all
"hard disk problem: reboot action performed"


Thi means you have lost connections between the VirtualBox disk and the real hard drive, you should disable the use system I/O cache option under the virtual machine main hard disk settings.


do

Code: Select all
apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem
to turn to bigmem

The "system I/O cache" option was already disabled for the hard drive under the virtual machine ?!??!?!?

I disabled the otpion also for the CD-ROM , maybe this will fix it ?! Will see....

Yes, artica reboot into text mode with the menu. I hit Q to quit menu and login, and it works fine. No fsck necessary.

Confused?!

I think the virtual machine is not stable...
We encounter these kind of error on our demo servers that are stored on a VirtualBox server.
After severals analysis we ahve found that the controller card is not very fast and do the timout sata linking when using virtual machines.
i did know wich kind of server store your virtual machine but i think you need to investigate in this way

Ah.. ok... this is a good clue to investigate futher....

One change that I made in the VirtualBox is that I moved the virtual hard drive onto a secondary (real) hard drive.

This drive is slower speed than a normal 7200 rpm hard drive, it's a WD Green Drive (5400 rpm)... but still, SATA-II 300 Mbps interface... 64MB cache... good performance...

This reboot problem started when I moved the virtual hard drive onto this WD Green hard drive, it is important for the virtual drive to be stored on a different drive from the primary system hard drive....
