Linux VM stuck RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Today i found out my Linux VM was not working. I could not access it via HTTP or SSH.

    Since there isn't much i could do, i tried a restart. It took ~10 minutes and failed. After that, i tried another restart and it failed again after sometime.

    It only worked when i stopped, waited, and started. The whole process took 40 minutes.

    Why exactly this happens? The VM almost have no resource usage, why is it freezing?
