Failed to Start StoneDB in a KVM

An error is returned when StoneDB is started in a kernel-based virtual machine (KVM).

The following code provides an example.

# /stonedb/install/bin/mysql_server start

./mysql_server: line 264: kill: (20941) - No such process

The status code and error message are 22159 Illegal instruction.

This error occurs when the system cannot identify the instruction set. After GDB is used to analyze the core dump files, the cause is located: Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) is disabled. Enable AVX and then you can start StoneDB.

To check whether AVX is enabled, run the following command:

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep avx
