[Cluster-devel] (Repost from linux-cluster) Handling of CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN in daemons

Hi all,

I originally posted the same content to linux-cluster list, but there is
no answer there, so I suspect that this list is more suitable.

Several days ago I found that clvmd CPG in my cluster went to kern_stop
state, after there were some problems on corosync ring due to high load.

Cluster now contains three nodes, two bare-metal and one VM. VM suffered
from insufficient scheduling due to host load, and cluster went to
split-brain for one second and quickly recovered back.

CPG issued CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN event, and after that clvmd went to
kern_stop on two bare-metal nodes and to kern_stop,fencing on VM
(natural, it didn't have a quorum).

I would expect VM to be fenced, but actual fencing did not happen. clvmd
cpg stuck in kern_stop even after that VM was fenced manually, so I
needed to take the whole cluster down to recover.

I discovered a reason why node was not fenced on CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN event.

Here what I see in dlm_tool dump:
1313579105 Processing membership 80592

1313579105 last 1313579107
1313579107 clvmd check_fencing done

That means that dlm_controld received CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN event for
clvmd CPG and did not call kick_node_from_cluster(), so pacemaker didn't
do fencing on behalf of clvmd cpg.

Please correct me if I'm wrong:
* Request for fencing of node on CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN event was
historically left to groupd to do.
* That's why all daemons (fenced, dlm_controld, gfs2_controld) call
kick_node_from_cluster() only on CPG_REASON_PROCDOWN event, not on
* groupd is obsoleted in 3.x.

Shouldn't daemons request fencing on CPG_REASON_NODEDOWN too?
Now they only mark node as failed and increase cg failcount.

I use pacemaker-based setup, and actually use only (obsoleted)
dlm_controld.pcmk, but problems seems to be a little bit wider than that
daemons one.

Setup is:
dlm_controld.pcmk from 3.0.17
