kernel drm stuck on bsd ring

Hi all,

I have been working on integrating the Media SDK / GPU into our real-time streaming media server.  Most of the functionality is now working at low density (2 to 4 parallel processing channels) and we are attempting to ramp things up.  Unfortunately, we start seeing some serious issues as we hit 6 and 8 channels.  The device continuously reports 'busy' and the error 'kernel drm stuck on bsd ring' was observed in /var/log/messages.

Searching for this in the forums yields nothing.  Searching globally I found some similar issues pointing to the kernel version.  Any insight from the minds at Intel?

Thanks - Bob / Dialogic

A few related posts indicate there may be some correlation to the RC6 settings.  Here's what the system currently has . . .

[root@sut-1300 ~]# dmesg | grep RC6

Hi Bob, 

We have seen similar issue in the past, our next release has a fix for this issue which is schedule in a week or more. Can you try on the latest release and confirm if you are able to reproduce or send us the reproducer to try at our end. 
Another question I had, are you transcoding HD or 4K AVC streams real time?

Thanks,
Surbhi

Hey Surbhi

I will gladly try the latest release, I assume I have to wait until it is available. This is transcoding 720p, no more than 30 fps?

Thanks,
Bob

Hi Bob, 

Media Server Studio 2016 is out, please see this note to find instructions on download and find out what's new in this blog. Also, let us know after updating the version you still see the above reported error. 

Thanks,

Hey Surbhi, 

I seem to have resolved the issue with some refactoring of the decode methods.  I have also installed the 2016 release and it is working as well as the 2015 release.

Thanks,
Bob
