I'm running Icehouse atop Ubuntu server 12.04. I notice a very strange behaviour when I delete multiple vm instances. In fact, instances are kept in deleting state. By trying to analyze the problem, I found out that nova-compute, because of a segmentation fault error, was not running on the nodes containing the vms I was trying to delete. Here's the error from the log:

Oct 28 15:17:19 localhost kernel: [709293.487884] nova-compute[43959]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fe8d0da8c90 sp 00007fe8c4e55878 error 4 in[7fe8d0ca0000+1b5000

Is anyone experiencing this issue? How can i solve it?

Thanks in advance.

I'm still having this issue. Again, is anyone experiencing this problem?

Where is running your compute-agent (in a VM)? Is there enough free memory ? Otherwise you can try to recompile your package. I've never see this issue before

My compute agent is running on a physical server equipped with 2 16-cores AMD processors and 32GB of RAM. More than 20% of RAM was free when this error came out.

Could you paste more log entries (some lines before). In addition occurs that issue only on one host?

No, it occurs on every compute node. Just to add more details, I deployed Openstack on each compute node by using Devstack. Here you can find more log entries related to nova:
