Re: [lvm-devel] [PATCH v2] Better clean-up of pvmove failures in a cluster



Dne 13.5.2014 04:31, Jonathan Brassow napsal(a):
I think this patch is just about ready, but I'd like to make sure that
I'm not making any mistakes in calling _deactivate_node().
Specifically, I'd like to know whether I need to pass a cookie pointer
and udev_flags.  If I need udev_flags, do I need anything special.

I believe the key bug here is the incomplete preload tree - since
any 'empty' node should be removed by CLEANUP pass after activation.

It looks like some device nodes from pvmove are not preloaded.
(If all nodes would be in preload tree - then those incomplete
would have been removed - unless there is another bug in this code path)



activation:  Remove empty DM device when table fails to load.

As part of better error handling, remove DM devices that have been
sucessfully created but failed to load a table.  This can happen
when pvmove'ing in a cluster and the cluster mirror daemon is not
running on a remote node - the mapping table failing to load as a
result.  In this case, any revert would work on other nodes running
cmirrord because the DM devices on those nodes did succeed in loading.
However, because no table was able to load on the non-cmirrord nodes,
there is no table present that points to what needs to be reverted.
This causes the empty DM device to remain on the system without being
present in any LVM representation.
