Description of problem:
When flushing, discard only memb_join messages
Patch solves problem when 1 ring out of 2 went up/down quite often.
The simplest setup to reproduce bug is following:
- 2 VMs, connected by 2 network interfaces
- OS: Linux
- On one of the VMs, a test program sending some CPG messages (see the
script "test_corosync.sh" joined to this mail for example)
Here are the Corosync logs we get when we do this setup:
Jun 06 16:23:40 corosync [TOTEM ] A processor joined or left the
membership and a new membership was formed.
Jun 06 16:23:40 corosync [CPG ] chosen downlist: sender r(0)
ip(192.168.56.104) r(1) ip(192.168.57.104) ; members(old:1 left:0)
Jun 06 16:23:40 corosync [MAIN ] Completed service synchronization,
ready to provide service.
Jun 06 16:24:37 corosync [TOTEM ] Marking ringid 1 interface
Jun 06 16:24:38 corosync [TOTEM ] Automatically recovered ring 1
Jun 06 16:25:33 corosync [TOTEM ] Marking ringid 1 interface
Jun 06 16:25:34 corosync [TOTEM ] Automatically recovered ring 1
Jun 06 16:26:35 corosync [TOTEM ] Marking ringid 1 interface
Jun 06 16:26:36 corosync [TOTEM ] Automatically recovered ring 1
The second ring goes down about every 2 minutes and automatically back
up right after.
We spent some times looking for the commit that introduced this bug, and
it appears it's due the following one:
Corosync 1.3.3 -> 1.3.4: e27a58d93d0d3795beb550f87b660c9c04f11386
Corosync 1.4.1 -> 1.4.2: be608c050247e5f9c8266b8a0f9803cc0a3dc881
Commit message: Ignore memb_join messages during flush operations
I had a look at this commit, and it seems to me it's dropping too many
Because of this commit, while totemrrp_recv_flush() is called, Corosync
drops memb_join packets, but also ORF tokens. In the end, it seems that
sometimes, we drop so many of them that Corosync marks the ring as
To fix that, only memb_join messages are dropped now.
Steps to Reproduce:
Described in description
Marking rrp interface as faulty too often
Oposite of actual results
For QE: Community patch, I was not able to reproduce it by myself.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field

Using rrp in some networks
Some networks / CPU timing is causing very often marking ring as faulty in situations when it's not. Main problem seems to be that Corosync drops memb_join packets, but also ORF tokens
Drop only memb_join messages
RRP interface should no longer be marked improperly as faulty.
