Description Garry Wong 2009-05-20 14:56:59 EDT
Description of problem: RHEL4.8x86 GA hts5.3-15 fails Profiler and Storage test with 10G nic VC Flex10 environment. But the test passed with 1G nic environment. This is a Blade AMD platform server

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL4.8x86 GA release

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL4.8x86 GA onto SUT with 10G nic VC Flex 10 environment
2. Open modprobe.conf
3. Add "options oprofile timer=1" to the end of the file and reboot
4. Installl hts5.3-15
5. Run hts plan
6. hts run --test profiler and hts run --test storage
7. Tests failed.

Actual results: Failed

Expected results:Should pass as 1G nic environment

Additional info:See attached log

So far we only see this issue on AMD platform. Not sure on Intel platform.

Comment 2 Rob Landry 2009-07-16 13:12:07 EDT
Garry, do you have the logs which show this failure?  Also it might be work a look into if hts-5.3-17 solves the issue, though I suspect the profiler change in -17 is unrelated.

Hi Rob,

See attached logs. We will verify with -17 and update you.

Thanks for your time.

Hi Garry,

I'm not certain if this is still an issue but the storage failures are caused by the partition setup:

Error: cciss/c0d0 is currently in use by LVM.
It cannot be tested. You may need to reinstall.
...finished running ./storage.py, exit code=1

...and the oproile failures are caused by this...

Failed to open profile device: Cannot allocate memory
Using 2.6+ OProfile kernel interface.
Couldn't start oprofiled.

...which IIRCis caused by the irq timer resource being taken by the nmi_watchdog, this can be worked around by disabling the nmi_watchdog or setting the oprofile option to use the software timer via "options oprofile timer=1" in modprobe.conf.

The LVM issue still exists but the timer mode should be worked around in the test suite itself now.
