Description Saurabh 2013-10-29 08:39:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Well, lets we have a volume having quota enabled and limit set.
Mount the volume over nfs.
now, put "quotad" down, basically kill quotad on all nodes of the cluster.
Try to create a directory or file it may return an "Input/Output error"
Once, it starts giving this issue, further creation of directories/files keeps giving the same issue.

Catch over here is that, all the bricks and nfs process is running. 
So, quotad just an aggregator of quota limit should not cause issue for I/O. 

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

How reproducible:
many a times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create volume, start it.
2. enable quota, limit set on the root of the volume
3. mount over nfs
4. create a directory.
5. kill quotad process on all the nodes.
6. set a limit on the directory created in step4.
7. trying data inside the directory.

Actual results:
step 6. limit set successful
step 7. resulted in Input/Output error

Expected results:
EIO should not happen, as I/O does not depend upon the quotad, as presently the brick processes and nfs process is still running.

Additional info:
having four nodes
after killing quotad on all nodes,

from server,
[root@quota3 ~]# gluster volume quota dist-rep3 limit-usage /qa7 1GB
volume quota : success

from client,
[root@rhsauto005 nfs-test]# cd qa7
[root@rhsauto005 qa7]# touch a
touch: cannot touch `a': Input/output error
[root@rhsauto005 qa7]# 

[root@quota3 ~]# gluster volume quota dist-rep3 remove /qa8 
volume quota : success

[root@rhsauto005 qa7]# cd ../qa8
[root@rhsauto005 qa8]# touch a1
touch: cannot touch `a1': Input/output error
[root@rhsauto005 qa8]#

Without quotad running, enforcing cannot be done. Skip quota enforce when quotad is not running can cause other problem, like we can run out of quota limit.
For quota to work properly we need to quotad also running, so closing this bug as NOTABUG
