> VMs may use 8GBs of RAM in total. Hypervisor has 64GB in total. So VMs and ARC could create OOM condition but the statistics I provided were taken at themoment when one of the VMs hang. I'll reduce arc_max anyway to 8GB to make sure this isn't the cause.

Not sure you need to cut arc_max to 8GB, but just make sure that arc_max +
total(all VM's) + host usage is < than 64GB.

I have been pointed at:
If the guest(s) are using virtio-block, it might be interesting to
check the status of the IO queues for those devices.  The reported
issues could be a case of https://smartos.org/bugview/OS-7613.

I have pinged the D19501 review and it looks like some forward motion has
happened there.  You *may* if you can want to try the patch that is there now,
knowing that it is about to be revised.
