Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Previously, when a replica pair picks up the active syncing of geo-replication upon its active peer's failure, used to process the whole brick's data to sync data. This was causing lot of delay and redundant data processing. With this enhancement update, this behavior is fixed, and now, upon failover to the passive node, it does very minimal crawl and handles the changes which are not handled by its replica pair only, removing all the unnecessary delays.

Description Vijaykumar Koppad 2013-07-23 03:39:24 EDT
Description of problem: when geo-rep is started with change_detector changelog, 
only active replica brick should get the changelogs in .processing, and passive should be idle as long as active replica brick goes down or becomes unreachable. 
But passive replica brick gets changelogs in .processing and when it becomes active, it starts processing all those changelogs again, infact it will be trying sync changes which are already synced to slave by other replica pair.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:Happens every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create and start a geo-rep relationship between master(DIST_REP) and slave. 
2.Create some data on the master and let it sync. 
3.Check the .processing file in working_dir of the passive replica brick 

Actual results:Passive replica brick gets changelogs in .processing

Expected results:Passive replica brick should be idle even with respect to getting changes in .processing.

Targeting for 3.0.0 (Denali) release.

Tried in the build glusterfs-,  still it does first xsync crawl, processes the XSYNC-CHANGELOGs like this,

why LINK files, when there are no link files created. Files created were just regular files.
Comment 6 Amar Tumballi 2013-11-11 04:07:30 EST

The fix was never about the passive should not do the xsync crawl at all... It is about not doing anything 'redundant'. Which means, after a passive node becomes active, it does minimal xsync crawl (ie, not crawling entire filesystem like earlier). After that, process the changelog from only the latest time.

Please see if above is achieved, and if yes, you can say the bug is fixed.
Comment 7 Vijaykumar Koppad 2013-11-11 04:45:32 EST
    Even I wouldn't have worried if it had just done xsync crawl and started with the changelog, instead it generated the a xsync-changelog with the entries like above pasted in comment 5 for all the files in the brick (in my case it had ~5K file), and actually it took some time to process that xsync-changelog.
Comment 9 Vijaykumar Koppad 2013-11-12 05:02:39 EST
I tried on the build glusterfs-, it is still doing the first xsync crawl, and get the entries in the xsync changelog like this

Comment 10 Vijaykumar Koppad 2013-11-12 05:09:28 EST
And also, it is working well with the part of skipping the changelogs which are not supposed process from .processing directory. The only problem is first xsync crawl as I mentioned in the comment 9.
Comment 14 Vijaykumar Koppad 2013-11-14 03:35:30 EST
verified on the build glusterfs- Now it works fine. 

these are the logs from geo-rep

and it does start hybrid crawl, but generates a zero byte XSYNC-CHANGELOG. So there is almost zero processing time of XSYNC-CHANGELOG.
