What will trigger 82599 VF known issue "Rx Page Allocation Errors"

Hi,

I got this logged in my kern.log:

warning kernel: swapper: page allocation failure. order:0, mode:0x20

 

...

 

warning kernel: Call Trace:

After a while, the system crashed for out-of-memory (kernel panics). It only happened on some servers (low end Intel Xeon) but not on the others. So I got 3 questions for you guys:

- Is this exactly the VF known issue mentioned in the subject?

- If yes, what will trigger it?

- Why the memory was used up when this happened?
