Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-105) /tmp/stream-unix.####.###### stale sockets causing inodes to run out on Xenserver
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 15:39:07 GMT


Caleb Call commented on CLOUDSTACK-105:

Our setup is using basic networking and I'm not 100% certain by what you mean with having
CSP packages installed.  We don't have Cloudstack Platform anything installed if that's what
you mean.  We do have the supplemental package installed on our Xenserver hosts.  This is
observed on all hosts in all zones.  We have three separate zones, one with three hosts, and
two with single hosts.  The single node zones have currently ~10-15 instances running on them
and the three node zone has ~30-40 instances running on it.

I will look through our management server logs and see if a new master is being designated
by Cloudstack.  For the single node zones, I don't see that being the issue though.

> We came across an interesting issue in one of our clusters.  We ran out of inodes on
all of our cluster members (since when does this happen in 2012?).  When this happened, it
in turn made the / filesystem a read-only filesystem which in turn made all the hosts go in
to emergency maintenance mode and as a result get marked down by Cloudstack.  We found that
it was caused by hundreds of thousands of stale socket files in /tmp named "stream-unix.####.######".
 To resolve the issue, we had to delete those stale socket files (find /tmp -name "*stream*"
-mtime +7 -exec rm -v {} \;), then kill and restart xapi, then correct the emergency maintenance
mode.  These hosts had only been up for 45 days before this issue occurred.  
> In our scouring of the interwebs, the only other instance we've been able to find of
this (or similar) happening is in the same setup we are currently running. Xenserver 6.0.2
with CS 3.0.2.  Do these stream-unix sockets have anything to do with Cloudstack?  I would
think if this was a Xenserver issue (bug), there would be a lot more on the internet about
this happening.  For a temporary workaround, we've added a cronjob to cleanup these files
but we'd really like to address the actual issue that's causing these sockets to become stale
and not get cleaned-up.
