The CPU HOG errors in IOSv are expected and completely cosmetic. More info in the release notes.
As for the nodes not completing the boot sequence...
based on your system hardware, I would expect a single IOSv node to boot fairly quick; about 2min max. Once the node has booted and after the messages stop, click in the console window and press enter a couple of times. If you are still not able to get a response, with the simulation running please collect the problem report again and attach to your response.
unfortunately all devices still stuck after the copyright disclaimer.
Attached you can find same reports of before but this time while topology was running (with a single L2 switch)
Could you please review the logs and let me know if there is something wrong?
For reference I already tried to delete and create another Virl VM but without any luck.
Sorry for the delay.
No. The logs show a single node without ANK initial config up and running as expected. This is because we are able to configure and start the simulation without issue. The problem is that once the simulation has been configured and Openstack starts each node (virtual machine) unless there is a problem with an Openstack action, we would not see it. When you start the simulation, have looked at your systems resource monitor to see if you physical computer is having a problem with VMware or something?
Keep in mind, if your physical computer only has 8GB or RAM and 4 CPUs the slow start would be due to overcommitment of resources. Your CPU has 4 physical cores and is hyperthread enabled, so that would not be a problem. What I do not know is the amount of physical RAM and type of HDD. If your physical computer has 16GB of memory or more, enable RAM disk via UWM System Configuration. Keep me posted.
My Pc has 16GB of RAM so I don't think memory can be an issue for a single switch.
I enabled RAM disk via UWM System Configuration but didn't help.
I installed from scratch VMware Player, and VM Maestro, I still have same issue.
I was looking around and I have seen couple of posts of people that had same issue after Windows10 Upgrade.
Could be? I updated my PC the day before installing Virl.
It very well could be the Windows update, but this is something we have not been able to replicate. Since rolling back the Windows update may not be the best idea, try installing VMware Workstation (free trial version) and see if the problem persists. Also, while the simulation is starting take a look at the disk activity via System Monitor to ensure the disk does not show high wait times.
Can you also post your Windows version including build? Thank you.
any news? for your info yesterday I formatted my PC to factory default, and now I installed again all the files but to Windows 8.1
I still have the same issue, so not sure now if could be a specific Windows 10 version.
However, I found exactly the same issue here
As far as I could see from that post and youtube video posted by Derren, I have the same identical issue.
Looks like that problem still ongoing, so I think is not solved yet.
Hello Federico, the post you are referring to is not exactly the same. One of the issues we saw in the post from Darren is a mismatch of versions. It could have been from a failed upgrade or similar. The CPU hog errors on IOS devices are cosmetic and can be completely ignored. The issue you are describing is related to the virtual machines responding very slow after they have been provisioned. We are just waiting on the virtual machine to boot, but why it is taking so long is what is perplexing. I am still looking into this issue but do not have any answers yet.
Can you post a screenshot of 'About VMware' window which can be found under the help menu? This would give me more information so I can attempt to recreate the issue.
I finally have a god news.
After that I rolled back my laptop to factory default (with Win8.1) I upgraded my windows to 10.
To be more precise current version that I have is:
Windows 10 Home
OS Build 17134.376
The build is different from the one that I had before formatting my PC, that was Build 17134.345
With this new version of Windows 10 my simulation is running well.
My L2-SW is booting in about 40 sec while my IOS Router is booting in about 1 minute and 30 sec. and I'm able to access via console without issues.
Now I have one update in pending (Windows is asking me to reboot my laptop to install the update), hopefully this will not break again Virl.
I'll let you know after the upgrade.
