Last updated on APRIL 18, 2018

Applies to:

Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.3.1 and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

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.
