For example, if I run a "sleep 1; date" loop on the VM and migrate it from xen4 to xen7: Wed Oct 26 21:14:46 PDT 2011 Thu Oct 27 04:19:03 PDT 2011 xen4 ~ # uname -a Linux xen4 3.0.3 #3 SMP Thu Sep 1 23:39:43 PDT 2011 x86_64 Intel(R)I think maybe you need these patches on your dom0 kernel: http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2011-10/msg01762.html
Unfortunately I'm still running into this problem, migrating VM's between particular dom0's will result in a jump forward of anywhere from minutes to hours. This has persisted through dom0 and xen upgrades (now on dom0 3.2.7 / xen 4.1.2) so maybe we're missing something in the domu kernel (184.108.40.206)? Reviewing kernel change logs doesn't indicate anything's changed in regard to clocksources though.
Examples (just running date on the domU after each migration) Initially: Mon Jun 18 13:53:48 PDT 2012 Xen2 -> Xen8: Mon Jun 18 13:55:05 PDT 2012 (No shift) Xen8 -> Xen2: Mon Jun 18 14:27:31 PDT 2012 (+30 approx minutes) Xen2 -> Xen8: Mon Jun 18 14:28:38 PDT 2012 (No shift) Xen8 -> Xen2: Mon Jun 18 15:01:21 PDT 2012 (+30 minutes again)This is now running with a domu kernel of 220.127.116.11 (w/ grsec) and a dom0 kernel of 3.2.7 on both dom0's (they should be identical). I've tried both the "tsc" and "xen" clocksources in the domU with no effect (no others are listed in available_clocksources).
Not sure if this is useful, but while on xen8:(XEN) dom27: mode=0,ofs=0xffc56b8eee259ecf,khz=2266790,inc=13,vtsc count: 37835 kernel, 750 user
After moving to xen2:(XEN) dom7: mode=0,ofs=0xffc51d4984ee8f42,khz=2266790,inc=14,vtsc count: 17628 kernel, 71 user
Anyone have any suggestions here?
