Description Luiz Capitulino 2015-09-29 10:22:32 EDT
Created attachment 1078384 [details]
lat.out that reproduces the issue

Description of problem:

We've been seeing that in some systems the files lapic_timer_adv_ns and lapic_timer_adv_ns.cpumodel are not being created in /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host/.

I've debugged this issue down to (silently) failing when run by tuned.

I'm attaching the lat.out file that reproduces the issue:

[root@virtlab401 realtime-virtual-host]# ./ /tmp/tmp.ZjZlVhDqe8/lat.out 
optimal not found
[root@virtlab401 realtime-virtual-host]# 

Btw, in those systems we ended up with 7000 written to /sys/module/kvm/parameters/lapic_timer_advance_ns, just because that's the last value tried by

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): tuned-2.5.1-4.el7.noarch

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a KVM-RT host
2. The following files don't exist:
  * /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host/lapic_timer_adv_ns
  * /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host/lapic_timer_adv_ns.cpumodel
3. /sys/module/kvm/parameters/lapic_timer_advance_ns is 7000
Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2015-10-02 06:11:47 EDT
Upstream commit:

Also I am going to move:

to /var/lib/tuned/...

This is according to FHS and should also help with SELinux (if enabled).

Postponing this specific change to later 7.3 rebase.
Comment 10 Tereza Cerna 2016-09-09 05:16:10 EDT

I'm confused from this bug and I don't know what is really expected result. What everything should be set and work? What all should I do for testing this bug?

# tuned-adm profile realtime-virtual-host

# ./ lat.out 
./ line 10: *100/ 3429: syntax error: operand expected (error token is "*100/ 3429")
optimal value for lapic_timer_advance_ns is: 7000

>> Optimal value seems well - 7000 - like in description.
>> There is syntax error, should I create a bug?

# cat /sys/module/kvm/parameters/lapic_timer_advance_ns

>> Why there is 1000 and not 7000?

# ls /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host  lat.out  tuned.conf
# ls /var/lib/tuned
ls: cannot access /var/lib/tuned: No such file or directory

>> Files lapic_timer_adv_ns and lapic_timer_adv_ns.cpumodel are missing in /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host and /var/lib/tuned. Where is it? Are these files necessary?

# rpm -q tuned
Comment 11 Tereza Cerna 2016-09-09 05:21:16 EDT
There is behavior on old tuned package:

# tuned-adm profile realtime-virtual-host

# ./ lat.out 
optimal value for lapic_timer_advance_ns is: 6500

# cat /sys/module/kvm/parameters/lapic_timer_advance_ns 

# ls /usr/lib/tuned/realtime-virtual-host/  lat.out  tuned.conf
# ls /var/lib/tuned
ls: cannot access /var/lib/tuned: No such file or directory

# rpm -q tuned
Comment 12 Luiz Capitulino 2016-09-09 09:01:22 EDT
Is lat.out the one attached in this BZ? If it is, then I can't explain why it is working for you. But at the same time, this was a minor bug and I don't think it's worth it to spend time trying to figure out how an old version of tuned used to work.

In this case, I'd recommend skipping verification for this one.
