Re: [Linux-cluster] Trying to locate the bottleneck



Hi Guys

I am trying to locate ip_conntrack_max within CentOS 5.3 but it doesn't appear to be where I expect it to be. I have googled for this and from what I have read it should be located within

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max

Which is where I thought it would be but unfortunately it isn't.

Here is some output

[root loadbalancer-01 ~]# grep conn /proc/slabinfo
ip_vs_conn 0 0 128 30 1 : tunables 120 60 8 : slabdata 0 0 0

[root loadbalancer-01 ~]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-headers-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5
kernel-devel-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5
kernel-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5

[root loadbalancer-01 ~]# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_max
cat: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_max: No such file or directory


I have also checked within  /etc/sysctl.conf and nothing.

Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance

Hi Jeff

Many Thanks for your reply.

I have had a look to see if there if there is anything suspicious within dmesg and within messages and unfortunately there isn't anything at all apart from one timeout.

Jul 8 10:15:51 loadbalancer-01 nanny[5427]: [inactive] shutting down 192.168.10.36:80 due to connection failure Jul 8 10:16:03 loadbalancer-01 nanny[5427]: [ active ] making 192.168.10.36:80 available

I'll check out the possibility of any network related issues which may cause this problem though.

Thanks for all your help!

Hi Raymond,

At those concurrency levels I would suspect network tuning may help.
Does dmesg show anything interesting on the load balancers during your
testing?

For high levels of concurrency on a NAT'd firewall or load balancer I
specifically remember having to adjust ip_conntrack_max upwards.
Perhaps network buffers as well.

Subject: [Linux-cluster] Trying to locate the bottleneck

Hi

I am trying to find a problem here with a setup which I am currently
testing.

This is the current setup which I have at the moment

15 web farm servers which are running vhost-ldap module and also have
ldap caching enabled. Which are behind 2 Load balancer servers which
are
in fail over. The software which it is currently running is Piranha on
the load balancers.

I am using siege to get some benchmarking done on these to test
basically their availability when pushing high concurrency.

At 100 (99.60 according to siege) Concurrent Connection it appears to
be
all ok with 99.89%. At 120 (119.52 according to siege) Concurrent
connections I get 99.9%, and at 130 (129.51 according to siege)
Concurrent Connections I get 100% availability.

However pushing it any further than this, for example 150 concurrent
connections it is falling over and siege bails out with multiple
connection time outs. I am trying to find the bottle neck here and I
am
wondering if it is software which I am using for the load balancers or
a
limitation with apache.

The command I am using for siege is pretty simple nothing special;

siege --concurrent=150 --internet --file=urls.txt --benchmark
--time=60M
My lvs.cf file can be found here to show you guys the config which I
am
using.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks

R.
