Description Cesar Wong 2020-04-17 19:50:28 UTC
Description of problem:
Test 'Pod Container Status should never report success for a pending container' is failing on IBM ROKS clusters

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run e2e conformance test on IBM 

Actual results:
Test 'Pod Container Status should never report success for a pending container' fails

Expected results:
Test 'Pod Container Status should never report success for a pending container' should succeed

Additional info:
The delay between the time a pod is created and the time it is deleted, could be 0 or very close to 0. This is not enough time for the pod to be setup, volumes mounted, etc. The test should be fixed to allow enough time for this:

Comment 1 Dan Winship 2020-06-11 17:33:28 UTC
Why was this filed as an ibmcloud bug? The analysis above suggests that the test just has a race condition, not that there is something specific to ibmcloud that makes it fail.

Now that the fix/test has been backported, it is completely breaking e2e-aws-4.2 as well: https://testgrid.k8s.io/redhat-openshift-ocp-release-4.2-blocking#release-openshift-ocp-installer-e2e-aws-4.2

Comment 2 Cesar Wong 2020-06-11 18:09:30 UTC
The only reason is that this was that this test was continuously failing for e2e conformance on IBM cloud and we added a skip explicitly for it. However, I agree that this is not specific to ibmcloud, it could flake on any platform.

Comment 3 Ryan Phillips 2020-06-11 18:57:07 UTC
I learned from Cesar that IBM is running on RHEL7. I suspect they need to update their crio and runc binaries to the latest released versions.

Comment 4 Ryan Phillips 2020-06-11 19:06:09 UTC

These look correct.

Comment 5 Ryan Phillips 2020-06-11 19:17:12 UTC
Related to https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/issues/88766

Comment 6 Ryan Phillips 2020-06-11 20:05:19 UTC
Cesar tested against the IBM release once more and did not see this issue again. We have had lots of runc and crio fixes recently, so I suspect some upgrades might have happened.

I found a minor issue with the log line, which is patched here: https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/92051  (I'll create a separate BZ to backport the change, since it is not related to this issue).

If the issue comes back, certainly please reopen.

Comment 7 Dan Winship 2020-06-12 13:02:21 UTC
OK, well whether or not this is a problem on ibmcloud, it's a problem on e2e-aws-4.2 (https://testgrid.k8s.io/redhat-openshift-ocp-release-4.2-blocking#release-openshift-ocp-installer-e2e-aws-4.2)

(Also, if this is not a problem on ibmcloud then then the skip rule in test/extended/util/annotate/rules.go needs to be removed.)

Comment 11 Ted Yu 2020-06-16 21:40:34 UTC
During back porting, found some logistical issue:


Comment 12 W. Trevor King 2020-06-18 04:14:05 UTC
TestGrid [1] shows this failing in every release-openshift-origin-installer-e2e-aws-4.2 job that has run the test since it landed via [2,3].  It is blocking 4.2 release acceptance [4].  To cut a new 4.2.z, we need to either revert [3] or find and fix the product bug it is exposing (which is presumably what this ticket is about).  Thoughts on whether this is a product issue that is serious enough to block on?  Do we think the product issue is a regression, or is it a long-running issue that's just being exposed by the new test?  Brackets from "e2e-aws-4.2 mostly passed" to "e2e-aws-4.2 hardly ever passes":

Comment 14 W. Trevor King 2020-06-18 04:32:16 UTC
Breaking 4.2.z for almost two weeks on a new test is bad.  I've filed [1] to revert and drop the test to get back to green CI.  Folks can take another run at this with #25129 and a fixed test without holding up the rest of 4.2.z.  On the other hand, I don't have power to approve origin changes or twiddle the labels to get the revert PR landed, so maybe #25129 will land first anyway ;).

*** Bug 1844376 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 18 Ben Parees 2020-06-18 15:03:26 UTC
Moving this back to new.  We reverted the introduction of the test in the 4.2.z stream(which is the only place where we saw it breaking):

But it needs to be unreverted in 4.2.z, and any 4.3/4.4/4.5/4.6 work (this bug was originally filed against 4.5 and targeted to 4.6) needs to be resolved.

Comment 19 Ryan Phillips 2020-06-18 15:15:19 UTC
After some discussion in slack, we reverted the 4.2.z PR and will not be backporting a fix into 4.2.z for a few reasons:

1. 4.2.z is largely for critical and CVE fixes
2. The patch that was reverted works in later releases (4.3, 4.4, and 4.5)
3. The patch relies on a 'fixed' version of CRIO is later releases

Moving this bug to MODIFIED to validate the patch is reverted.
