clurmtabd doesn't sync export subdirectories
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of problem:
If a service is specified with a given NFS export:
and an authorized client mounts:
then the /var/lib/nfs/rmtab entry:
does not get synchronized across the cluster, causing ESTALE in the event of
fail-over or manual relocation.
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a clumanager service with an NFS export "/export", available to world
(*) with any mount options.
2. Create a directory "/export/dir1"
3. Mount the NFS mount "/export/dir1" on any authorized client.
4. Power-cycle the active cluster server.
Client which has /export/dir1 mounted receives ESTALE, even if it also has
/export mounted (for which, it does NOT receive ESTALE!).
Have a fix for this and memory consumption. Ironing out bugs.
Testing mostly done. The build has these features:
- Performance an order of magnitude faster (was testing merges/reads/syncs on
your 13K-line file plus my 4K-line file).
- Memory consumption (while using just the 13K-line file) is about 10% of what
- Subdirectories sync properly.
Fix in pool. Test away!
Wrong status field; hours updated.
We have been running with clumanager-1.0.19-1suny.i386.rpm in place for about 60
hours now, 4 NFS servers, 2000 clients, active/active with multiple exports per
service, and this seems to work fine at this point. Service start/stop/relocate
is fast, and no ESTALE on server failure or manual service relocate.
