Description Sten Turpin 2016-07-15 15:11:55 UTC
Description of problem: On a relatively low-usage node, in a 24-hour period, hundreds of thousands of log entries saying that helpers.go couldn't read network stats

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): atomic-openshift-node- (also earlier versions, including 3.0 and 3.1)

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run an openshift node for any period of time
2. Review the logs

Actual results:
journalctl -u atomic-openshift-node --since today | grep -c "couldn't read net
work stats"

Expected results:
This error should be handled better in the code. Logging nearly 300k/day damages the signal:noise ratio in the logs when looking for other issues.

Additional info:
an example of a full log entry is:
Jul 15 15:10:21 ip-172-31-3-96.ec2.internal atomic-openshift-node[7724]: I0715 15:10:21.511529    7724 helpers.go:101] Unable to get network stats from pid 33009: couldn't read network stats: failure opening /proc/33009/net/dev: open /proc/33009/net/dev: no such file or directory
