[lvmetad] Daemon serving corrupted message to client
Last modified: 2013-01-02 07:34:17 EST
Description of problem:
I experienced a segfault in pvs, very likely caused by corrupted message served by lvmetad.
There were about 19 instances of pvs with different options running at the same time.
Likely a race condition in lvmetad. The issue is not reproducible, though it affected two clients running at the same time both of them got response with large part of metadata replaced by two characters.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. test was running multiple pvs with various combinations of -o and -O
incorrect response from lvmetad served to clients
correct metadata should be served
I let running 19 concurrent cycles running pvs for all night and could not reproduce the issue.
Created attachment 601952 [details]
the message served by lvmetad
I reviewed the routine receiving data from socket, and could not find a problem there, thus I believe the data vere served by lvmetad.
Remaining pvs running at the same time were either finished correctly or were killed by test.
One more pvs command was issued afterwards and returned correct result.
Issue is not reproducible - I have not seen it since reported.
Also since Bug 845269 was fixed the severity of the bug is low.
