Re: [Xen-devel] cpuidle and un-eoid interrupts at the local apic

Hello Yang,

The problem that we are discussing here seems to come from the interaction of my raid controller (Areca, ARC-1212) and the hardware. When I enable MSI on that controller the server crashes with the known error messages between 1 day and 7 days. When I disable MSI I don't see these crashes anymore.

Andrew doesn't have this controller but he could also observe these type of crashes with another MSI enabled card, I think the networc card. But less often, I think 2 times in the last 4 months.

My cpuinfo nor dmesg show any microcode information, perhaps Xen hides that info ?!

Best regards

Hi, Thimo,

I cannot reproduce this issue in my box after running about two weeks:
I started four guests (two PV guests and two HVM guests). And each guest runs a 
simple workload (ping a remote machine). After two weeks, the machine still 
works no crash and panic happen. Are there any special workload required to 
reproduce this issue?

Attached the cpuinfo and pci info in my box. Please compare it with yours to 
see whether it is same. Especially, the microcode version.

Best regards,
