Unix VM networking bug? (was Re: SqueakSource down?)
I haven't been able to get at the cause for the freezes, yet, for
impara's squeaksource installation (3.7 image, stock Linux 3.7-7 VM).
We guess it's related to a networking problem in the VM. Because when it
freezes, I just need to VNC into the machine, move the mouse pointer,
and it comes alive again.
The freezes regularly occur under heavy load, that is, multiple package
uploads causing a save of the in-memory meta data. My gut feeling is
this is related to async i/o, which somehow blocks, and is woken up
again when an X11 network packet arrives.
OTOH, I haven't heard of similar reports for other seaside apps. OTTH,
the usage pattern in squeaksource might be unique, nobody else is
serializing a multi-megabyte object network for each modification.
