Description Dan Callaghan 2012-06-15 03:52:47 EDT
If beaker-provision is sent SIGTERM (which is how the init script attempts to shut it down) while under heavy load, the signal handler could raise ShutdownException in the wrong greenlet:

2012-06-15 01:50:53 [ERROR   ] {19685} bkr.labcontroller.provision:85 Error processing command 42442
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/provision.py", line 78, in handle
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/provision.py", line 126, in handle_configure_netboot
    command['netboot']['initrd_url'], command['fqdn'])
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/netboot.py", line 153, in fetch_images
    siphon(urllib2.urlopen(initrd_url), dest)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/netboot.py", line 45, in siphon
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bkr/labcontroller/provision.py", line 182, in shutdown_handler
    raise ShutdownException() # gevent prints this to stderr, just ignore it

Normally it is expected to be raised in the main greenlet, where it is handled correctly. If it raises in the wrong greenlet then the daemon will never shut down cleanly.

The fix is to use an event to signal shutdown, rather than raising an exception.
