[rhelv6-list] xfs and xfsconvertd issues



Hi,

Has anyone seen the following scenerio.  We have an XFS file system that
seems to be going a bit crazy.  Running a fully patched RHEL 6.2 system
we are running KVM instances with libvirt with a default pool on a XFS
file system.  I destroyed a domain at which point the qemu-kvm process
went into zombie (Z) state.  I tried to restart libvirtd and it also
went into zombie state.

# ps axuww | grep Z
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root     45678  0.1  0.0      0     0 ?        Zl   Feb29   0:58
[libvirtd] <defunct>
qemu     47218  0.6  0.0      0     0 ?        Zl   Feb29   6:19
[qemu-kvm] <defunct>

Now the xfsconvertd processes are all showing up in constant device wait
state (D).  The other KVM vms on the file system seem to be working with
no issue.  We can read and write to the file system other than the raw
disk image that was associated with the destroyed domain.  Any
operations on that file cause the process to go into device wait state (D).

We have mounted the file system as normal XFS with the default options,

# mount | grep xfs
/dev/mapper/vol00-libvirt on /var/lib/libvirt/images type xfs (rw)

I would have submitted a ticket to Red Hat however we are an Academic
subscriber and they decided to wack the very low level support avenue
(Web Help Desk) we had in previous years when they reworked their line
items this year.

Thanks,
derek
