Updating the ide drive
Every time Virtual Box starts up a VM, a so-called .
Sometimes when there is a problem, it is useful to have a look at the logs.
Regions of memory such as MMIO regions are not included in the core file.
The relevant data structures and definitions can be found in the Virtual Box sources under the following header files: Occasionally, some host file systems provide very poor writing performance and as a consequence cause the guest to time out IDE/SATA commands.
If the traffic is routed through an adapter on the host, it is possible to use Wireshark or a similar tool to capture the traffic there.
However, this often also includes a lot of traffic unrelated to the VM.
There is no support for it, and the following documentation is only made available for advanced users with a very high level of familiarity with the x86/AMD64 machine instruction set, as well as detailed knowledge of the PC architecture.
A degree of familiarity with the internals of the guest OS in question may also be very helpful.
In order to work around this problem (the true fix is to use a faster file system that doesn't exhibit such unacceptable write performance), it is possible to flush the image file after a certain amount of data has been written.
This is normal behavior and should normally cause no real problems, as the guest should repeat commands that have timed out. some Linux versions) have severe problems if a write to an image file takes longer than about 15 seconds.
Some file systems however require more than a minute to complete a single write, if the host cache contains a large amount of data that needs to be written.
The 64-bit ELF object format specification can be obtained here: [ ELF 64 Header] [ Program Header, type PT_NOTE ] → offset to COREDESCRIPTOR [ Program Header, type PT_LOAD ] - one for each contiguous physical memory range → Memory offset of range → File offset [ Note Header, type NT_VBOXCORE ] [ COREDESCRIPTOR ] → Magic → VM core file version → VBox version → Number of v CPUs etc.
[ Note Header, type NT_VBOXCPU ] - one for each v CPU [ v CPU 1 Note Header ] [ DBGFCORECPU - v CPU 1 dump ] [ Additional Notes Data ] - currently unused [ Memory dump ]The memory descriptors contain physical addresses relative to the guest and not virtual addresses.
