Description Mike Christie 2005-06-24 19:25:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
For linux-iscsi (drivers/addon/iscsi_sfnet) it appears that if you set the ConnFailTimeout to any time setting then 15 seconds then an additional 50 seconds is added before I/O failover occurs. If your ConnFailTimeout is equal < 15 seconds then the I/O failover occurs based on the timer.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set ConnFailTimeout > 15 seconds

Actual Results:  ConnFailTimeout is x + 50 seconds

Expected Results:  ConnFailTimeout should be x seconds

Comment 3 Mike Christie 2005-06-27 18:39:36 EDT
Updating "Steps to reproduce"

1. set ConnFailTimeout > 15 seconds in iscsi.conf file
2. setup iscsi (run iscsid).
3. unplug network cable (leave unplugged).
4. verify that the log msg from this printk

                printk("iSCSI: session %p replacement timed after %d seconds, "
                       "drop %lu, now %lu, failing all commands\n",
                       session, replacement_timeout, session->session_drop_time,

comes after ConnFailTimeout seconds set in iscsi.conf, not ConnFailTimeout + 50
