Description Andrew Pierson 2007-03-08 16:35:34 UTC
Description of problem:

Connecting to a multi-homed nfs server through a firewall causes this to hang. 
Adding the -l option to df causes it to only check local filesystems.

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

Logwatch 5.2.2 (released 06/23/04)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to multi-homed nfs server
2. Hide behind a nat
3. logwatch runs.
Actual results:

zz-disk_space hangs

Expected results:

Timeout, failure, or cease checking remote filesystems.

Additional info:

Have a nice day!  The file is located here on my system:

I put it at low severity, since nfs through nat to multi-homed systems doesn't
work to begin with.  The problem is once you enter that configuration, the
logwatch processes will stack up as they hang.

This seems to be coreutils problem - logwatch uses df to generate disk_space report.

Comment 2 Kamil Dudka 2008-09-18 12:56:21 UTC
Could you please try to run 'df' on that machine? If 'df' hangs, can you attach the output of 'strace df'? Thanks in advance.

Can you access the mount-points with something else than 'df' or 'logwatch'?
