Description Need Real Name 2003-10-15 12:31:54 EDT
Description of problem:
I tested with a RedHat EL3B2 guest as a NFS server, and I encountered
the "RPC: Timed out" problem when I did a showmount -e.  I also
experienced the same time out problem when I tested from a different
RedHAT EL3B1 guest to remotely mount a filesytem.  The worst part is
if I don't do a /sbin/service nfs stop after I encountered the
"RPC: Timed out" message, the rpc.mountd would just consume lots of 
processor cycles. 

EL3 Beta One does NOT have this problem!



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux mokcmtc01vipa-lnx00.bankamerica.com 2.4.21-1.1931.2.399.ent #1 SMP Wed 
Aug 20 15:23:46 EDT 2003 s390x s390x s390x GNU/Linux


How reproducible:
[root@mokcmtc01vipa-lnx00 root]# showmount -e
rpc mount export: RPC: Timed out


Steps to Reproduce:
1. NFS mount from a different Linux guest to the exported filesystem also   
   cause the same problem on the Beta 2 guest.
2.
3.
    
Actual results:


Expected results:

Emil, nobody can reproduce this here, so we'll have to rely on you
to provide the data.

Can you attach strace -p <pid> to the looping rpc.mountd and
attach the trace? You can interrupt strace if trace gets
repeating, it will detach.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2003-11-24 17:33:00 EST
I only found the repeat of "select(1024, ..." messages from strace -p 
pid.  It stopped after I issued "service nfs stop".  

select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])
select(1024, [3 4], NULL, NULL, NULL)   = 1 (in [3])

Anyway, this problem is no longer existed on EL3 AS. 

Thank you

I think this report can be closed, right ?
