[Bug 1505564] Re: Soft lockup with "block nbdX: Attempted send on closed socket" spam


Except that what happens on the compute nodes is that, when creating an
instance, nova attaches the image with qemu-nbd (say to /dev/nbd0), and
then tries to mount /dev/nbd0 somewhere, except that doesn't work
because the image has partitions, and so the root device is actually on
/dev/nbd0p1. So the "mount" commands return an error, and nova then
detaches the image with qemu-nbd -d.

Overall, as far as nova logs show, there is 0 write on the nbd device
and very few reads (probably just the MBR ?). Could that still cause
inflight I/O when qemu-nbd -d is ran ?

I'll happily test your kernel PPA, but as far as I can see, you don't
mention where it actually is :)

Thanks !

  Soft lockup with "block nbdX: Attempted send on closed socket" spam

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  Some of our nova compute hosts regularly freeze, sometimes for a few
  hours, with kern.log getting spammed with:

  block nbdX: Attempted send on closed socket

  and a few "CPU soft lockup" messages (see attached log). This clears
  up when the queue gets cleared, eg :

  block nbdX: queue cleared
