As per freenas support,

In the provided debug I see several identical core dumps, reporting crash on Machine Check Exception:

Usually MCA panics are result of hardware issues. Considering that you are running desktop hardware, I am not exactly surprised.  But what makes me worry is that in all cases exception happened while system was executing virtual machine, so it may be either a trigger (and I don't know much about AMD MCA) or just unrelated witness, just because this system spends most of its CPU time running VMs. 

You may try to report this issue to FreeBSD in case somebody really knows how to decode AMD MCA.  But what I see now looks like checksum error in CPU L1 cache, which is a hardware problem.

I don't do unpaid support work for iX.  If you can reproduce in FreeBSD, I'm interested.
Comment 2 Alexander Motin freebsd_committer 2019-08-07 17:10:29 UTC
Conrad, your comment sound unfair and impolite to me.  We at iX do all we can for FreeBSD.  We upstream everything possible.  But we can not maintain whole OS ourselves.  You can consider the system in question as FreeBSD 11.2 with some backports, but not in MCA code.  If you think the problem may already be fixed in newer FreeBSD version, that is fine, otherwise some bit of expertise shared would be nice.  And this is not a paid customer, we are in the same situation as FreeBSD project.
