ERROR: "interrupt storm detected on "irq18:"; throttling interrupt source"



  • VMware ESXi 5.0

    Got Cisco wireless passthru to work (but not sure properly) and now my console is going nuts with this error.

    "interrupt storm detected on "irq18:"; throttling interrupt source"

    what is this?

    EDIT: Everything seems to be working fine (wireless works). CPU is fine but memory is chewing through more than 3.5GB constantly.

    I'm going to try and get serial COM1/Console working on the VM so I can get a better idea of what's going on.

    EDIT #2: My gateway RTT time is now 11ms when it was previously .005ms (on average)

    EDIT #3: Turn off (disable ath0_wlan1 and everything is fine and back to normal. (except the Intel PT nics I have in the box are being read & picked up as Intel MT)
