Description Stuart Sears 2008-02-22 05:27:14 EST
Description of problem:
conga hangs probing storage on xen cluster nodes.

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

How reproducible:
every time!

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.
Actual results:
a large number of parted processes on the cluster node, which hang while trying
to probe the storage devices on that node.

Expected results:
luci displays the storage devices attached to that particular node.

Additional info:
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.
Comment 2 Ryan McCabe 2008-03-24 21:41:49 EDT
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.
