[Qemu-devel] [Bug 638955] Re: emulated netcards don't work with recent sunos kernel
Tue, 01 Mar 2011 15:14:58 -0000
Emulated NIC is e1000.
I found out that if one reduces the MTU on the client like "ifconfig eth0 mtu
300" it seems ssh hangs much more rarely (but still hangs, at 300).
Reducing it on the virtualization host bridge is not enough though (unless you
are initiating ssh from the virtualization host itself)
To trigger the hang, do:
while true ; do dmesg ; done
The higher the allowed MTU, the quicker the hang, e.g. MTU 500 hangs within one
minute. 1500 hangs instantly.
Command line is the following. Excuse the length... it's a libvirt
QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=none /usr/local/qemu-kvm-0.14.0/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -S
-M pc-0.14 -enable-kvm -m 2048 -smp 2,sockets=2,cores=1,threads=1 -name
openindiana1 -uuid ed0b8483-d186-1f39-39ef-97194a1f02bf -nodefconfig
-mon chardev=monitor,mode=readline -rtc base=utc -no-acpi -boot c -drive
ide0-0-0,boot=on,format=raw,cache=none -device ide-
-usb -vnc 127.0.0.1:0 -vga cirrus -device virtio-balloon-
I'm available to try patches for a while if somebody can spot the
problem... the host is still not in production.
Thanks for your work

emulated netcards don't work with recent sunos kernel
Status in QEMU:
i'm using qemu-kvm backend in version: # qemu-kvm -version
QEMU PC emulator version 0.12.5 (qemu-kvm-0.12.5), Copyright (c) 2003-2008
and there are just *not working any of model=$type with combinations
of recent sunos (solaris, openindiana, opensolaris, ..) ..
you can download for testing purposes iso from here: http://dlc-
origin.openindiana.org/isos/147/ or from here:
http://genunix.org/distributions/indiana/ << osol and oi are also
bubuntu-like *live cds, so no need to bother with installing
behaviour is as follows:
e1000 - receiving doesn't work, transmitting works .. dladm (tool for handle
ethers) shows that is all ok, correct mode is loaded up, it just seems like
this driver works at 100% but ..
rtl8169|pcnet - works in 10Mbit mode with several other issues like
high cpu utilization and so .. dladm is unable to recognize options
for this kind of -nic
others - just don't work
.. i experienced this issue several times in past .. woraround was,
that rtl8169 worked so-so .. with recent sunos kernel it doesn't.
it's easy to reproduce, this is why i'm not putting here more then
launching script for my virtual machine:
# cat openindiana.sh
qemu-kvm -hda /home/kvm/openindiana/openindiana.img -m 2048 -localtime -cdrom
/home/kvm/+images/oi-dev-147-x86.iso -boot d \
-vga std -vnc :9 -k en-us -monitor
-net nic,model=e1000,vlan=1 -net tap,ifname=oi0,script=no,vlan=1 &
ip l set oi0 up;
ip a a 192.168.99.9/24 dev oi0;
