Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS2 cluster node is running very slow

Hi Steve,

	We seems to be experiencing some new issues now... With 4 nodes, only one is slow but with 3 nodes, 2 of them are now slow.
2 nodes are doing 20k/s and one is doing 2mb/s ...  Seems like all nodes will end up with poor performances.
All nodes are locking files in their own directory /mnt/application/tomcat-1, /mnt/application/tomcat-2 ...

Just to clarify:

Are these directories on the same filesystem or are they on individual filesystems?

If the former, try splitting into separate filesystems.

Remember that one node will become the filesystem master and everything else will be slower when accessing that filesystem.

I'm out of ideas on this one.

Hi Steve,

I think you're right about the the glock ... There was MANY more of these. We're using a new server with totally different hardware. We've done many test before posting to the mailing list like:
- copy files from the problematic node to the other nodes without using the problematic mount, everything is fine (7MB/s)
- read from the problematic mount on the "broken" node is fine too (21MB/s)
So, at this point, I doubt the problem is the network infrastructure behind the node (or the network adapter) because everything is going smooth on all aspect BUT
we cannot use the /mnt on the broken node because it's not usable.  Last time I tried to copy a file to that /mnt it was doing 5k/s while
all the other nodes are doing ok at 7MB/s ...

Whenever we do the test, it doesn't seem to go higher than 200k/s ...

But still, we can transfer to all nodes at a decent speed from that host.
We can transfer to the SAN at a decent speed.

CPU is 0% used.
Memory is 50% used.
Network is 0% used.

Only difference between that host and the others is that the mysql database is hosted locally and storage is on the same SAN ... but even with this,
Mysqld is using only 2mbit/s on the loopback, a little bit of memory and mostly NO CPU .

It's a monster for what it does. Could it be possible that it's soo much more performant than the other nodes that it kills itself?
The servers is Centos 5.5 .
The filesystem if 98% full (31G remaining on 1.2T) ... but if that is an issue, why does all other nodes running smoothly and having no issues but that one?


Thank you for the reply,

Dave

This doesn't mean anything without a bit more context. Were these all
queued against the same glock? If so which glock was it?

The application running is confluence and has 184 thread.   The other
nodes work fine but that specific node is having issues obtaining
locks when it’s time to write?

That does sound a bit strange. Are you using a different network card on
the slow node? Have you checked to see if there is too much traffic on
that network link?

Also, how full was the filesystem and which version of GFS2 are you
using (i.e. RHELx, Fedora X or CentOS or....)?


Steve.

Hi guys,

                We have a GFS2 cluster consisting of 3 nodes.  At this
point, everything is going smooth.  Now, we add a new node with more
CPUs with the

exact same configuration but all transactions on the mount run very
slow.

Copying a file to the mount is done at about 25kb/s when on the three
other nodes, everything goes smooth at about 7MB/s.

CPU on all nodes is idling at some point, all cluster process are kind
of sleeping.
We’ve tried the ping_pong.c from apache and it seems to be able to
write/read lock files at a decent rate.

There’s other mounts on the system using the same fc
card/fibers/switches/san and all these are also working at a decent
speed...

I’ve been reading a good part of the day, and I can’t seem to find a
solution.
