VMX status report Nov.29 changset 8090

Shi, Kuiliang



We have test latest xen on VT platform with Intel 915 chipset and Here is the test summary:
 

IA32:
    Build&Boot SMP xen0 without problem
    Can startup unmodified 2.4/2.6 linux on VMX domain
    Can startup VMX & Xen with different configuration
    Part of LTP runs well in VMX domain(2.6)
 
IA32E:
    Build&Boot SMP xen0 without problem
    Can startup unmodified 2.6 linux on VMX domain
    Can startup VMX & xenU with different configuration
    Part of LTP runs well in VMX domain(2.6)


Key issues of VMX domain:
 
        Windows is unstable, sometime can and other time cannot startup Windows domain.
        IA32 VMX domain can not work on IA32E platform

Other issues:

        Install windows xp with add lapic=1 will crash guest OS
        Install HCT from CDROM on windows xp guest may crash guest OS
        "vcpu-pin" will cause service OS hang
  Installations of SUSE10 IA32, FC2 IA32 failed on both IA32 and IA32e hosts.
        Installations of RHEL3U5 IA32e, FC2 IA32e and SUSE 10 IA32e failed on IA32e host.

Please pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by IA32E?  x86_64?  x86
+ PAE ?

Thanks.
Andrew

It's Intel's name for 64-bit mode (or long mode, or x86/64, or whatever
you want to call it).

IA32E is x86_64 mode, not x86 + PAE, not IA64. It is a official name in Intel.

IA-32e is the name for an architectural mode; there is no mode like
x86_64. Since IA-32e mode (added by Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology)
operates in one of two sub-modes, i.e. 64-bit mode or compatibility
mode, using "64-bit (mode)" is clearer.

yes, Jun is correct.

EM64T(Extended Memory 64 Technology) have 2 modes, one is leacy IA32
mode and other is IA32E mode.

Thank you, Jun.
