[Bug 1555351] Re: High load freezes ubuntu completely everytime (have to reboot)


KelleyMcChes, to advise, you seeing potentially the same symptom on
different machines, different OSes, and/or with X server running doesn't
make it any more or less a kernel issue (although it would be suspected
as a root cause given the symptoms themselves).

Despite this, it will help immensely if you filed a new report with the Ubuntu repository kernel (not mainline/upstream) via a terminal:
ubuntu-bug linux

Please feel free to subscribe me to it.

  High load freezes ubuntu completely everytime (have to reboot)

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Whenever an intensive application runs which consumes lots of memory
  or hard drive i/o, Ubuntu freezes completely. It is even impossible to
  kill the offending task. Only "solution" is then to wait for the
  application to finish, or restart PC.

  Windows doesn't have this issue as bad as Ubuntu, in that Windows is
  always somewhat responsive, and you can attempt to kill the intensive
  application to recover the system.
