[Linux-cluster] GFS hanging on 3 node RHEL4 cluster



Problem:
It seems that IO on one machine in the cluster (not always the same
machine) will hang and all processes accessing clustered LVs will
block.  Other machines will follow suit shortly thereafter until the
machine that first exhibited the problem is rebooted (via fence_drac
manually).  No messages in dmesg, syslog, etc.  Filesystems recently
fsckd.

Hardware:
Dell 1950s (similar except memory -- 3x 16GB RAM, 1x 8GB RAM).
Running RHEL4 ES U7.  Four machines
Onboard gigabit NICs (Machines use little bandwidth, and all network
traffic including DLM share NICs)
QLogic 2462 PCI-Express dual channel FC HBAs
QLogic SANBox 5200 FC switch
Apple XRAID which presents as two LUNs (~4.5TB raw aggregate)
Cisco Catalyst switch

Simple four machine RHEL4 U7 cluster running kernel 2.6.9-78.0.1.ELsmp
x86_64 with the following packages:
ccs-1.0.12-1
cman-1.0.24-1
cman-kernel-smp-2.6.9-55.13.el4_7.1
cman-kernheaders-2.6.9-55.13.el4_7.1
dlm-kernel-smp-2.6.9-54.11.el4_7.1
dlm-kernheaders-2.6.9-54.11.el4_7.1
fence-1.32.63-1.el4_7.1
GFS-6.1.18-1
GFS-kernel-smp-2.6.9-80.9.el4_7.1

One clustered VG.  Striped across two physical volumes, which
correspond to each side of an Apple XRAID.
Clustered volume group info:

  VG UUID               hfeIhf-fzEq-clCf-b26M-cMy3-pphm-B6wmLv

Logical volumes contained with hq-san VG:
  cam_development   hq-san                          -wi-ao 500.00G
  qa            hq-san                          -wi-ao   1.07T
  svn_users         hq-san                          -wi-ao   1.89T

All four machines mount svn_users, two machines mount qa, and one
mounts cam_development.
