SSSD NSS log file

Description of problem:
When client_idle_timeout is set in SSSD.CONF, sssd should check for and terminate idle connections. See BZ827036. However, i see a minimum of four file descriptors active even when a user is inactive for a long time.

This behaviour has caused failures in our automated regression run. 

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup sssd.conf as follows:

config_file_version = 2
domains = LDAP
services = nss, pam

debug_level = 0xFFF0
client_idle_timeout = 30

debug_level = 0xFFF0
client_idle_timeout = 30

id_provider = ldap
auth_provider = ldap
debug_level = 0xFFF0
cache_credentials = FALSE
ldap_uri = ldaps://hubcap.lab.eng.pnq.redhat.com
ldap_tls_cacert = /etc/openldap/certs/cacert.asc
ldap_search_base = dc=example,dc=com

2. login as ldap user and do nothing for 1 minute.

3. Open a new terminal and monitor the number of NSS and PAM file descriptors.

# lsof -p $(pidof sssd_nss) | grep /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 4663 root   17u     unix 0xffff88b53b7ff800       0t0   40687 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 4663 root   21u     unix 0xffff88b539489000       0t0   41481 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 4663 root   22u     unix 0xffff88b53868a000       0t0   41913 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 4663 root   23u     unix 0xffff88b539977000       0t0   41683 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 4663 root   24u     unix 0xffff88b538688c00       0t0   41794 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss

# lsof -p $(pidof sssd_pam) | grep /var/lib/sss/pipes/pam
sssd_pam 4664 root    0u     unix 0xffff88b538a03000       0t0   41454 /var/lib/sss/pipes/pam
sssd_pam 4664 root   20u     unix 0xffff88b51f013400       0t0   42210 /var/lib/sss/pipes/pam

Actual results:
After 30 seconds, sssd should terminate idle FD's however that's not happening.

Expected results:
SSSD should kill idle connections once client_idle_timeout is over.

Comment 12 Amith 2017-11-28 12:06:14 EST
Verified the bug on SSSD Version : sssd-1.16.0-6.el7.x86_64

Steps followed during verification:

1. Setup sssd.conf as mentioned in the bug description.

2. login as ldap user in SSSD client machine and wait for over a minute.

# ssh -l testuser1 localhost
testuser1@localhost's password: 
/usr/bin/id: cannot find name for group ID 2121
[testuser1@bkr-hv03-guest12 ~]$ 

3. Monitor NSS and PAM file descriptors on a different terminal.

With the latest sssd build, the count of FD's has come down to one. Earlier we use to see more than 2 idle connections, even after the client_idle_timeout (30 sec) was over.

[root@bkr-hv03-guest12 ~]# lsof -p $(pidof sssd_pam) | grep /var/lib/sss/pipes/pam
sssd_pam 24118 root    0u     unix 0xffff996ca17f4800       0t0    45146 /var/lib/sss/pipes/pam
[root@bkr-hv03-guest12 ~]# 
[root@bkr-hv03-guest12 ~]# lsof -p $(pidof sssd_nss) | grep /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
sssd_nss 24117 root   17u     unix 0xffff996cb0b2d000       0t0    45180 /var/lib/sss/pipes/nss
