[CentOS-virt] NUMA placement failed, performance might be affected

Chris,

Check your cpuinfo from flag which did not indicate any ‘VMX’ support for your CPU virtualization support on the board.

Solved.

 

For the archives:

 

Noticed in xl info output that only 1 core was recognised, even though nr_cpus should show 16 on this box.

 

Tried rebooting and selecting the old .34 kernel, console printed "smpboot: do_boot_cpu failed(-1) to wakeup CPU#1" and CentOS failed to boot. Powered down the box fully and started back up with the latest .44 kernel and everything is working fine now.

 

Not enough of an expert to know if this is a bug in the kernel, a problem with the BIOS, bad hardware, a completely random stroke of bad luck or a cosmic sign. Happy it works now. If anyone has experienced this and has any suggestions they would be received with gratitude.

 

Chris

I just did a yum update on a CentOS 7 / Xen 4.6 server which took me from kernel-3.18.34-20.el7.x86_64 -> kernel-3.18.44-20.el7.x86_64

 

After rebooting, the following notice is printed immediately upon xl create'ing a domain: libxl: notice: libxl_numa.c:499:libxl__get_numa_candidate: NUMA placement failed, performance might be affected

 

Indeed performance is significantly degraded. This issue didn't happen on the older kernel. Any ideas where it came from or how it can be fixed?
