Description of problem:

"WARNING: Logical volume Bug/worker-006-000001 not zeroed" message while running extend.py script

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


How reproducible:

While trying to reproduce Bug1553133 on RHEL8.2, running extend.py script on 2 hosts. (Create, Extend & Remove LV)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy the script from: 

2. On the first host:
   python2 extend.py create-vg <VG_NAME> /dev/mapper/<LUN_ID>
   firewall-cmd --add-port=8000/tcp
   python2 extend.py run-manager -p 8000 <VG_NAME> /dev/mapper/<LUN_ID> 

3. On the second host:
   python2 extend.py run-regular -p 8000 <First Host hostnae/IP> <VG_NAME> /dev/mapper/<LUN_ID> 2>1_run-regular.log    

Actual results:

LV commands create, extend and remove - run successfully.
lvcreate command --> WARNING: Logical volume Bug/worker-006-000001 not zeroed.\n'

Expected results:

LV commands create, extend and remove - run successfully.
"not zeroed" should not be display

I don't find anything wrong with that, it's a script used as a reproducer and the message doesn't seem to be problematic, Nir anything you want to add?

The issue is not the stress test. We will probably have the same warnings in vdsm,
and these warnings will be logged as WARN log message. Warnings in our logs are
bad, causing users and QE to open unhelpful bugs about them.

We need to:
- Check if the warnings appear in vdsm logs on rhel 8.2
- Check why the warning is logged by lvm, maybe they should stop logging it
- If this is not a real warning suppress it in vdsm until lvm stop to log it.

Comment 3 Tal Nisan 2020-03-23 15:45:48 UTC
David, Ilan, please take a RHV 4.4 run on the tiers and on scale testing and run a grep on the logs for this warning, let us know please if you found it or not and we'll know how to proceed

Comment 5 David Vaanunu 2020-04-07 18:09:00 UTC
Have no RHV4.4 now
I'm going to install 4.4 latest. 
It will take time until we can start the testing

Comment 6 Roman Bednář 2021-02-11 14:15:37 UTC
There are no warnings logged by VDSM upon creating or extending logical volume. The warning comes from lvm when device is not zeroed.

There are some defaults and flag relations at play:
The reason for warning presence when running extend.py reproducer script is that it runs lvcreate with "--activate n". Which (in lvm) defaults to "--zero n" and warning is shown.
VDSM on the other hand does not use activation flag so lvm defaults to "--activate y" which behind the scenes defaults to "--zero y" (see 'man 8 lvcreate' for details).

When running create and extend operations via VDSM I was not able to observe any warnings.
