Description Derek Anderson 2005-01-05 17:20:32 EST
Description of problem:
I wanted to use a simple fence method with no arguments (like
/bin/true).  Part of the cluster.conf file looks like this:

<clusternode name="link-10" votes="1">
    <method name="abc">
      <device name="123"/>

  <fencedevice name="123" agent="logger DIE, FOO"/>

The problem line is:
      <device name="123"/>

It can be unproblemmed by adding something, like:
      <device name="123" myargs="getsome"/>

The problem is that when a fence operation is attempted ccsd and
fence_tool join together to consume 100% CPU and hang:
 2767 root      16   0 14536 1356 1136 S 60.6  0.3   6:53.13 ccsd
 2775 root      25   0  1648  308  252 R 39.3  0.1   4:36.51 fence_tool

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.1 RPMS built Wed 15 Dec 2004 01:13:08 PM CST

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a fence device with only a "name" key/value
2. Start fence_tool -D
Actual results:
Hangs on the first attempted fence operation, which is:
"fence_tool: unfence ourself"

Expected results:
Don't do that.

note to dct:

ccs_get_list is now available, which will not barf in the presence of
the above situation.
Comment 2 David Teigland 2005-01-09 21:48:36 EST
fenced now uses ccs_get_list to avoid the problem
