[Linux-cluster] possible bug in cluster start-up



Hi,

 

I am still feeling my way around RHCS, and today I added a dummy fencing script just to see how fencing agents are called.

 

This script just says hello to syslog, and dumps the environment to a file in /tmp, and returns "Done" and a success code to fenced:

 

cat fence_ack_null

#! /usr/bin/perl -w

 

#

# Fencing agent that always succeeds

#

 

use Sys::Syslog;

 

my $dump = "/tmp/fence_ack_null.dat";

 

open( OUT, ">>$dump" ) || die "Failed: $!";

 

print OUT "=" x 80, "\n", scalar(localtime ), "\n";

foreach my $a ( sort keys %ENV ) {

  print OUT "$a => $ENV{$a}\n";

}

 

print OUT "fence_ack_null @ARGV\n";

 

close(OUT);

 

openlog( 'fence_ack_null', 'cons,pid', 'user' );

syslog( 'info', 'fence_ack_null called');

closelog();

 

 

print "Done\n";

exit 0;

 

In the dump of the environment, I was surprised to find items from my environment when I started the cluster:

fence_ack_null

 

To my mind, this is a bug in the cluster system.  I would expect a daemon process to sanitise its environment to prevent unexpected side effects from creeping  in. 

 

Checking /proc/<pid>/environ for the cluster daemons, the following are affected:

ccsd

groupd

fenced

dlm_controld

gfs_controld

clurgmgrd

 

Which raises a question:  is there a bug tracking system for linux-clustering where I can record this issue ?

 

regards,

Martin
