Doc Text:
The default age for purging deleted database records has been corrected so that deleted records are purged from Cinder's database. Previously, the CinderCronDbPurgeAge value for Cinder's purge cron job used the wrong value and deleted records were not purged from Cinder's DB when they reached the required default age.

Description Alan Bishop 2018-04-06 13:40:36 UTC
Description of problem:
The default value for Cinder's db purge cron job is incorrect. The THT parameter is defaulting the db purge job's "age in days" to 0, when instead it should match the default value in puppet-cinder, which is 30.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible: 
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Deploy overcloud with default CinderCronDbPurgeAge
2.
3.

Actual results:

Display cinder's cron job on controller:

[root@overcloud-controller-0 logrotate.d]# crontab -u cinder -l                                                                                                            
# HEADER: This file was autogenerated at 2018-04-05 21:04:24 +0000 by puppet.
# HEADER: While it can still be managed manually, it is definitely not recommended.
# HEADER: Note particularly that the comments starting with 'Puppet Name' should
# HEADER: not be deleted, as doing so could cause duplicate cron jobs.
# Puppet Name: cinder-manage db purge
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin SHELL=/bin/sh
1 0 * * * cinder-manage db purge 0 >>/var/log/cinder/cinder-rowsflush.log 2>&1

The "0" after "db purge" is the age setting that is incorrect.

Expected results:

The age should default to 30.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Alan Bishop 2018-06-11 16:22:04 UTC
Retargeting for OSP-13 since 11 is EOL.

Comment 2 Alan Bishop 2018-06-11 17:27:50 UTC
Upstream patch should arrive via next RDO import (for 13z1).

Verified on:
openstack-tripleo-heat-templates-8.0.4-4.el7ost.noarch

# docker exec -it openstack-cinder-volume-docker-0 /bin/bash
()[root@controller-0 /]# crontab -u cinder -l
# HEADER: This file was autogenerated at 2018-08-01 13:27:31 +0000 by puppet.

PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin SHELL=/bin/sh
1 0 * * * cinder-manage db purge 30 >>/var/log/cinder/cinder-rowsflush.log 2>&1

As expected -> cinder-manage db purge 30
