Re: [win-pv-devel] Windows 10 domU is unstable with PV Bus Driver

I have 2 "tail -f" to track xenstored-access.log & qemu-dm-win10.log.
They didn't show anything else after the 174 grant request was issued.

However, I managed to have the whole computer (i.e. including dom0) to reboot!
I was locally connected (through a vswitch & through rdesktop to the
domU. After a while, it stopped responding. I tried to connect through
the VNC interface but Windows denied the access saying the user was
already involved in an RDP connection.
Before the reboot, the dom0 was behaving normally and nothing was
added into the logs.

It also happened twice before I increased the gnttab_max_frames value
(and I'm quite sure I was also rdesktop-ing to the domU).

The command I use is:
rdesktop -u $USER -x 0x80 -g workarea -r disk:share=$HOME/rdp-share -r
sound:off $XENIP

A single PV network and 4 vcpus.

Here is my config:

boot = "c"
device_model_args=[ "-trace", "enable=xen_platform_log" ]
disk = [ '/dev/vg_sda/lv_win10,raw,hda,w' ]
keymap = "fr"
memory = 3800
name = "win10"
usb = 1
usbctrl = [ 'type=devicemodel,version=3' ]
usbdevice = [ 'tablet' ]
vcpus = 4
vif = [ 'script=vif-openvswitch,bridge=ovsbr0,mac=00:16:3e:35:fd:24' ]
vnc = 1
