Description Corey Marthaler 2013-10-02 20:19:30 UTC
This exists in rhel6.5 as well.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #979560 +++

Description of problem:
Wouldn't one easy to read "device in use" message be better when attempting to deactivate a VG containing a thin snap that's being written too?

Well 2 things are running here against each other.

We have the AI udev daemon in the system - which runs it's scanning rules,
and currently there is no synchronization with udev  (needs udevmonitor).

So to avoid sporadic and random failures from 'lvremove' - retry of operation has been introduced  (activation/retry_deactivation = 1)

If you disable it - it will not log so many messages, when it is enables,
with current code it's not easy to distinguish from 'short living' udev scans, and long live open from some other commands -  tools just try to detect 'mounted' filesystem (possibly the most common case) and in this case there will be no retry.

There is longterm plan to import udevmonitor support into the tool, which should allow a smarter synchronization - but it's rather in design phase.

Severity of log message though is questionable.
IMHO 'log_error()' is too scary and for all non-final logs I'd prefer rather debug level - but then user could be wondering why it takes so long to finish the command....

So it needs some decision to be made upstream.

(...currently there *is* synchronization, but not for the events coming from the WATCH udev rule - happenning on each close of the device opened for read-write before... just to make things clear and not to mystify if someone else is reading this by chance)
