[PCA 2.x / OVM] Negative Value for Steal Percentage in "top" Output after VM Live Migration (Doc ID 2338313.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 23, 2022

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.3.1 and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64


On Oracle Private Cloud Appliance and Oracle VM, after performing a live migration on recent PCA or Oracle VM versions, when running top in the virtual machine after having migrated it, the steal percentage reported in the top command output is negative and/or irrealistic.

This can reliably be reproduced live migrating.
