Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1294954
tier-snapshot.t runs too slowly on RHEL6
Last modified: 2016-04-19 03:52:20 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1293523 +++
Description of problem:
On RHEL6, we access CTR from the tier daemon using an IPC call. This is slow. It results in pause timeout when trying to create a snapshot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run tier-snapshot.t test, you will see a failure.
Steps to Reproduce:
Fail test 12
A fix could be to set the timeout larger on RHEL6.

tier/snap : Adding tier-snapshot.t to bad test
./tests/basic/tier/tier-snapshot.t to bad test
On RHEL6 the pause tier mechanism times out due to slow IPC calls
between the tier daemon and brick process. A workaround may be to
increase the timeout or improve the speed of RHEL6

COMMIT: http://review.gluster.org/13126 committed in release-3.7 by Vijay Bellur (firstname.lastname@example.org)

tests: add tests/basic/tier/tier-snapshot.t to bad tests
Seems to fail a lot on the 3.7 branch as well:
Since the test is anyway added to bad tests in master
(http://review.gluster.org/#/c/13056/), add it in 3.7 too.
