Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: On high incoming log rates Fluentd could possible flood the node's filesystem because the buffer queues were not limited. Consequence: A node under disk pressure could eventually crash the node and thus the applications would be rescheduled. Fix: The fluentd buffer queue per output is limited to a fixed amount of chunks (default 32). Result: Node disk pressure due to fluentd buffers should be omited by this fix.

Description OpenShift BugZilla Robot 2020-05-08 06:11:07 UTC
This is a clone of Bug #1826861. This is the description of that bug:
This bug was initially created as a copy of Bug #1780698

I am copying this bug because: 

Description of problem:
I have a cluster that was on 4.1.23 (upgraded continuously from about 4.1.4).

The upgrade to either 4.1.24 or 4.1.25 fails with a download error:

info: An upgrade is in progress. Unable to apply 4.1.25: could not download the update


4.1.25  quay.io/openshift-release-dev/ocp-release@sha256:5f824fa3b3c44c6a78a5fc6a77a82edc47cf2b495bb6b2b31e3e0a4d3d77684b
4.1.24  quay.io/openshift-release-dev/ocp-release@sha256:6f87fb66dfa907db03981e69474ea3069deab66358c18d965f6331bd727ff23f

oc get clusterversion
version   4.1.23    True        True          44h     Unable to apply 4.1.25: could not download the update

All Cluster Operators show on 4.1.23.

oc adm must-gather is at https://drive.google.com/open?id=18mqD6BpEwAQbApb1_5MD9j-cMBckBIA6

I can provide a kubeconfig as well to poke around there.
