conga hangs when probing storage on xen cluster nodes.
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:22:45 EDT
Description of problem:
conga hangs probing storage on xen cluster nodes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a xen cluster, where the nodes have a primary disk called xvda
2. install conga (and the appropriate additional packages)
3. use the luci interface to probe storage on one of the cluster nodes.
a large number of parted processes on the cluster node, which hang while trying
to probe the storage devices on that node.
luci displays the storage devices attached to that particular node.
This seems to be related to the device names used by the nodes. It may actually
be a parted problem (or the way we use parted for this). If the disks used by
the xen machines are renamed to 'hd*' (or, I assume sd* - didn't test this) the
storage probe returns immediately and works properly.
After some more searching, it may well be #366971 causing this. Seems likely.
A bug in parted is causing the hang, but conga should handle that kind of
behavior better. Duping into the RFE to support multiple concurrent tasks on a
busy entity, if possible.
