Re: [Xen-users] Weird issue on heavy server


I think I've run into this as well, on 4.1.2.  As far as I could tell, it was 
an issue with the bridged ethernet shared by my dom-Us (at the time, all hvm).  
Each domain had its own MAC address.  The domains could still communicate 
amongst themselves internally on the Xen server, but nothing was being 
forwarded between the bridge and the physical network.  A "service network 
restart" on my Fedora 13 dom-0 ( kernel) fixed the problem, but I 
still have no idea why it did that in the first place.

I speculate that it might have had something to do with the allocation of 
vif/tap devices and the fact that they don't seem to be properly recycled when 
enough VMs are shut down and restarted on the system.  Or at least, they always 
seem to increment as far as I can remember.
