Description Niels de Vos 2015-05-21 15:52:38 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1223889 +++

Description of problem:

No issue using nfs only with fuse.

For 32bits applications on 64bits systems, ino32 is mandadory but the readdirp optimisation still return 64 bits inodes when getdent syscall is triggerd.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a 32 bits application listing directories on a 64 bits system
2. Run it
3. Cry

Actual results:

getdents(5, 0x9b27308, 32768)           = -1 EOVERFLOW (Value too large for defined data type)

Expected results:

getdents(5, /* 1 entries */, 32768)     = 88

Additional info:

use use-readdirp=off when mounting the volume as a workaround but impact performaces.

Compile tested only, needs real functional test and maybe a test-case too.

This bug needs to get cloned for the mainline version and the patch needs review+merging in the master branch before it can get included in 3.5.

I gave a try with RPMs generated through


Seems to work fine with enable-ino32 to mount options and use 32bit binary to call getdents syscall.

Thanks !

For the record to test it you can compile:

 *  * List directories using getdents() because ls, find and Python libraries
 *   * use readdir() which is slower (but uses getdents() underneath.
 *    *
 *     * Compile with
 *      * ]$ gcc  getdents.c -o getdents
 *       */
#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <dirent.h>     /* Defines DT_* constants */
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <sys/syscall.h>

#define handle_error(msg) \
       do { perror(msg); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); } while (0)

struct linux_dirent {
   long           d_ino;
   off_t          d_off;
   unsigned short d_reclen;
   char           d_name[];

#define BUF_SIZE 1024*1024*5

main(int argc, char *argv[])
   int fd, nread;
   char buf[BUF_SIZE];

with gcc -m32 getdents getdents.c

And run it like ./getdents /path/

Before the patch:

strace -e getdents ./getdents /mnt/test/
[ Process PID=15906 runs in 32 bit mode. ]
getdents(3, /* 1 entries */, 5242880)   = 16
getdents(3, 0xff8f65bf, 5242880)        = -1 EOVERFLOW (Value too large for defined data type)
getdents: Value too large for defined data type
+++ exited with 1 +++

REVIEW: http://review.gluster.org/10882 (fuse: squash 64-bit inodes in readdirp when enable-ino32 is set) posted (#1) for review on release-3.7 by Niels de Vos (ndevos@redhat.com)

Comment 2 Niels de Vos 2015-06-02 08:20:20 UTC
The required changes to fix this bug have not made it into glusterfs-3.7.1. This bug is now getting tracked for glusterfs-3.7.2.

Comment 3 Niels de Vos 2015-06-20 09:48:29 UTC
This bug is getting closed because a release has been made available that should address the reported issue. In case the problem is still not fixed with glusterfs-3.7.2, please reopen this bug report.

glusterfs-3.7.2 has been announced on the Gluster Packaging mailinglist [1], packages for several distributions should become available in the near future. Keep an eye on the Gluster Users mailinglist [2] and the update infrastructure for your distribution.
