Subject [jira] [Created] (DTACLOUD-99) deltacloudd is sometimes unresponsive to client queries

deltacloudd is sometimes unresponsive to client queries

                 Key: DTACLOUD-99
             Project: DeltaCloud
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Server
         Environment: x86-64 Debian 6, x86-64 RHEL 6.1, ruby 1.9.2-p290
            Reporter: Jaime Frey
            Assignee: David Lutterkort
            Priority: Minor

When we test our deltacloud client code against the deltacloudd server with the mock driver,
the server is unresponsive to client queries on a couple of our machines. The problem machines
are running x86-64 Debian 6 and x86-64 RHEL 6.1. Other machines with these same OS's work
just fine. In our test framework, we build ruby 1.9.2-p290 and install the necessary gems
ourselves. Deltacloudd can be jolted back into normal operation by attaching to the child
process running the thin gem with strace. As long as the process is being straced, it responds
normally to client queries. As soon as strace detaches, deltacloudd returns to its unresponsive

Attaching to the child thin process with gdb doesn't change the server's behavior. But it
does show that the process is spending all of it's time in EventMachine_t::Run (em.cpp:432),
repeatedly calling EventMachine_t::_RunEpollOnce (em.cpp:473), which calls epoll_wait(). I
haven't dug into that any further yet.

I don't know if this is a bug in ruby, one of the gems, or deltacloudd. I not know ruby and
don't have the time to learn in order to track down this bug. We can provide access to the
affected machines if someone is interested in investigating.

To reproduce on an affected machine:
* Build ruby-1.9.2-p290 and add to PATH
* Install gems:
  % gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri amazon-ec2 compass eventmachine haml json nokogiri rack
rack-accept rack-test rake rcov rerun right_aws sinatra thin net-ssh
* Start deltacloudd:
  % deltacloud/server/bin/deltacloudd -i mock -p 3001
* Start client query:
  % wget --http-user=mockuser --http-passwd=mockpassword http://localhost:3001/api/instances
