Description Yang Yang 2016-05-17 09:10:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Drive mirror with option granularity fails on qemu-2.6. It cannot be reproduced on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.5.0-4.el7.x86_64

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mirror with granularity option
{ "execute": "drive-mirror", "arguments": { "device": "drive-virtio-blk0","target": "mirror0", "sync": "full","format": "raw", "mode": "absolute-paths","granularity":8192} }
{"return": {}}

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1463468322, "microseconds": 946118}, "event": "BLOCK_JOB_ERROR", "data": {"device": "drive-virtio-blk0", "operation": "write", "action": "report"}}

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1463468323, "microseconds": 75441}, "event": "BLOCK_JOB_COMPLETED", "data": {"device": "drive-virtio-blk0", "len": 3408723968, "offset": 10551296, "speed": 0, "type": "mirror", "error": "Invalid argument"}}

{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1463468423, "microseconds": 303307}, "event": "SHUTDOWN"}

Actual results:
Mirror with option granularity fail

Expected results:
Mirror with option granularity pass

Identified as a regression caused by:

    mirror: Rewrite mirror_iteration

...Which is fairly large change. Will investigate a fix, I am still not fully clear on the root problem -- something beneath paio_submit is returning -EINVAL from some point, so we're probably passing something incorrect to 
bdrv_aio_readv / blk_aio_preadv, I'd guess.

Odd to me that it gets so far down the chain before EINVAL gets bubbled back up, though.

Meet same issue on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-6.el7.x86_64.
According to my test, specify 'buf-size' together with 'granularity' mirroring could accomplish successfully, while mirror with only 'granularity' qemu will core dump for 100%.

Comment 4 John Snow 2016-06-22 19:18:53 UTC
Max helped identify that this is a problem with us exceeding MAX_IOV, which has happened to use before: cae98cb87d269c33d23b2bccd79bb8d99a60d811

Fixes en route.

2. Mirror with granularity:
{ "execute": "drive-mirror", "arguments": { "device": "drive-virtio-disk0","target": "mirror0", "sync": "full","format": "raw", "mode": "absolute-paths","granularity":8192}}

3. Reopen to the new mirror image:
{"execute": "block-job-complete", "arguments": { "device": "drive-virtio-disk0"}}

Block mirror succeed, without any error.
