Description Shashank Raj 2016-04-02 20:37:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Continuous "0-glfs_h_poll_cache_invalidation: invalid argument" messages getting logged in gfapi logs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Setup ganesha cluster.
2.Create a tiered volume and mount it using version 4
3.start fs-sanity tool on the mount point.
4.Observed that fssanity run hanged on read_large test suite and continuous below messages are observed in gfapi logs

5. These messages are getting generated every second and because of this the ganesha-afapi.log file size keeps increasing

[root@dhcp37-180 log]# ls -lh | grep ganesha
-rw-------. 1 root      root     1.2G Apr  2 15:26 ganesha-gfapi.log

Actual results:

Should not generate continuous logs in ganesha-gfapi.log
Expected results:

Comment 2 Soumya Koduri 2016-04-03 17:46:29 UTC

Were you running other operations as well along with fs-sanity, like attach/detach-tier operations?

Comment 3 Shashank Raj 2016-04-04 06:13:47 UTC
No, attach and detach tier operations were happening at that time.

Comment 4 Jiffin 2016-04-06 10:55:33 UTC
The read_large performs cat <large file 1Gb size>  > <destination file> on single file. I hit hang twice(out of 10-14), but I can't find any above mentioned log messages in ganesha-gfapi.log. I still didn't rcaed the hang issue.

Comment 5 Jiffin 2016-04-08 17:55:17 UTC
Adding to previous comment.

I didn't test it with HA. I suspect the log message does related do with test(either it was related to previous tests or the rebalance for the tier might not completed.) AFAIK the chance of having above polling messages if there is more than one glusterfs client(nfs-ganesha, tier daemon etc) access the same file. But in the above test(read large) I can't relate to any.

Also I found the following in the brick logs during hang:

Comment 6 Shashank Raj 2016-04-15 22:28:48 UTC
Observed the same issue with tiered volume where continuous "cache_invalidation: invalid argument" messages are seen.

The volume was mounted on 2 clients and from one client removal of files were going on and from other client ls was done on the mount point.

Attaching ganesha-gfapi.log

Comment 8 Soumya Koduri 2016-04-17 12:31:07 UTC
I see lots of Stale File Handle error for even dht/afr related lookups at the same time along with cache_invalidation requests. Moving it to tiering component to check if it is expected for tiered volume.

Comment 9 Jiffin 2016-04-18 13:45:28 UTC
These messages will be filled , when look is performed on unlinked. I cross check gfids which is mentioned in the log, I can't find those in backend. I didn't rcaed why polling happens on the unlink entries.

Comment 10 Soumya Koduri 2016-04-30 16:40:05 UTC
For the files being unlinked, since server shall forget the inode, it sends upcall to all the client connected to refresh their cache.

Thanks Jiffin for the RCA. He found that during upcall processing, while creating handle, we do not find entry in inode table and hence lookup is done resulting in these messages. The reason we cannot find inode entry is when the same client had done unlink. We should ignore such error cases. Have sent below patch to fix it upstream. 


Comment 14 Shashank Raj 2016-05-20 06:21:29 UTC
Verified this bug with latest glusterfs-3.7.9-5 and nfs-ganesha-2.3.1-7 build and during removal of files from the clients, the cache_invalidation messages are not seen in ganesha-gfapi.log.

Tried simultaneous lookup and removal of files also and no such messages are seen. So based on the above observation, marking this bug as Verified.
