Description Alex Krzos 2019-03-14 18:50:09 UTC
Description of problem:
It is possible to create a project with a few objects and delete that project within a few seconds and left over "used" IPs will remain on the worker nodes in the form of files in "/var/lib/cni/networks/openshift-sdn"

I have now seen two versions of this:
1. Create a single project with several templates resembling The MasterVertical test [0], sleep 2 seconds, delete project and review files in each worker under "/var/lib/cni/networks/openshift-sdn" to find stale or unused ips vs oc get pods on that specific worker

2. Large Scale cluster creating very close to at capacity number of pods and then deleting and cleaning up projects/pods has many left over stale files.

Once enough stale files collect, you will receive this error and pods stuck in containercreating on worker nodes:

How reproducible:
Pretty much always, at small scale it seems to be related to how rapidly you delete the project after all oc create commands are run

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Project with deployment configs, upon completion of oc commands, sleep 2, then delete project
2. Retry above several times and/or adjust number of objects created in project before deleting
3. Check worker nodes for stale files (Alternatively loop over this iteration many times until workers exhaust all IPs to receive an error and thus cluster can not spawn pods that have a Pod IP)

Actual results:
Left over files can eventually exhaust worker node and prevent workloads from running

Expected results:
Unused IPs to be cleaned up on project deletion

Additional info:

I tried running the below small scale example without a sleep statement and the ips seems to get cleaned up, so I believe it is a race condition on whether deployment configs are still creating objects while the project is being deleted.  The large scale example could be occurring because of other reasons related to the fact it is running a huge load.

Small Scale Example: https://gist.github.com/akrzos/afbadb6af23d5d84dd3b83e5dfa2c26a

To remedy the situation, simple clean out the unused ip files (/var/lib/cni/networks/openshift-sdn) from each worker node.

Comment 1 Alex Krzos 2019-03-14 18:54:31 UTC
This bug seems related however appears to be more of a functional issue with two interface multus pods rather than single interface pod.

Keeping the need info flag marked until I gather the data.
