Discussion:
Gluster 3.12.14: wrong quota in Distributed Dispersed Volume
(too old to reply)

Hi,

we're running a Distributed Dispersed volume with Gluster 3.12.14 at
Debian 9.6 (Stretch).

We migrated our data (>300TB) from a pure Distributed volume into this
Dispersed volume with cp, followed by multiple rsyncs.
After the migration was successful we enabled quotas again with "gluster
volume quota $VOLUME enable", which finished successfully.
And we set our required quotas with "gluster volume quota $VOLUME
limit-usage $PATH $QUOTA", which finished without errors too.

But our "gluster volume quota $VOLUME list" shows wrong values.
For example:
A directory with ~170TB of data shows only 40.8TB Used.
When we sum up all quoted directories we're way under the ~310TB that
"df -h /$volume" shows.
And "df -h /$volume/$directory" shows wrong values for nearly all
directories.

All 72 8TB-bricks and all quota deamons of the 6 servers are visible and
online in "gluster volume status $VOLUME".

I already found that setting the flag "trusted.glusterfs.quota.dirty" might help, but I'm unsure about the consequences that will be triggered. And I'm unsure about the necessary version flag.

Has anyone an idea how to fix this?

Hi,

Can you check if the quota crawl finished? Without it having finished
the quota list will show incorrect values.
Looking at the under accounting, it looks like the crawl is not yet
finished ( it does take a lot of time as it has to crawl the whole
filesystem).

If the crawl has finished and the usage is still showing wrong values
then there should be an accounting issue.
The easy way to fix this is to try restarting quota. This will not
cause any problems. The only downside is the limits won't hold true
while the quota is disabled,
till its enabled and the crawl finishes.
Or you can try using the quota fsck script
https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/19179/ to fix your
accounting issue.

Regards,
Hari.

Hi,

I think I know what happened. According to the logs, the crawlers recieved a signum(15). They seemed to have died before having finished. Probably too
much to do simultaneously. I have disabled and re-enabled quota and will set the quotas again with more time.

Is there a way to restart a crawler that was killed too soon? 

If I restart a server while a crawler is running, will the crawler be restarted, too? We'll need to do some hardware fixing on one of the servers soon
and I need to know whether I have to check the crawlers first before shutting it down.

Thanks for the pointers

The crawl won't be restarted on starting the server. Only quotad will

For the crawl to happen you will have to restart the quota.

Hi Hari,

I disabled and re-enabled the quota and I saw the crawlers starting. However, this caused a pretty high load on my servers (200+) and this seem to
have gotten them killed again. At least, I have no crawlers running, the quotas are not matching the output of du -h, and the crawler logs all contain
this line:

[2018-11-20 14:16:35.180467] W [glusterfsd.c:1375:cleanup_and_exit] (-->/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpthread.so.0(+0x7494) [0x7f0e3d6fe494] --

(15), shutting down

I suspect this means my file attributes are not set correctly. Would the script you sent me fix that? And the script seems to be part of the Git
GlusterFS 5.0 repo. We are running 3.12. Would it still work on 3.12 (or 4.1, since we'll be upgrading soon) or could it break things?

Kind regards

The quota crawl is an intensive process as it has to crawl the entire
file system. The intensity varies based on the number of bricks,
number of files,
the depth of filesystem, on going io to the filesystem and so on.
Being a disperse volume it will have to talk to all the bricks and
also with the huge size, the
increase in the CPU is expected.

This can mean that the file attributes are set and then its stopped/
as you said the process was killed while it still has the attributes
to be set on a few set of files.

This message is common for all the shutdown (one triggered after the
job is finished and one triggered to stop the process as well)
Can you check the /var/log/messages file for "OOM" kill?
If you see those messages then the shutdown is because of the increase
in memory consumption which is expected.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
I suspect this means my file attributes are not set correctly. Would the script you sent me fix that? And the script seems to be part of the Git
GlusterFS 5.0 repo. We are running 3.12. Would it still work on 3.12 (or 4.1, since we'll be upgrading soon) or could it break things?
Quota is not actively developed because of its performance issues
which need a major redesign. So the script holds true for newer
version as well,
because no changes have gone in the code for it.
The advantage of the script is it can be used to run over a certain
directory (need not be root. this reduce the number of directories/
files depth and so on) which is faulty.
The crawl is necessary for the quota to work fine. The script can help
only if the xattrs are set by the crawl. which I think isn't the case
here.
(To verify if the xattrs are set on all the directories we need to do
a getxattr and see) So we can't use script.

Hi,
I think I know what happened. According to the logs, the crawlers recieved a signum(15). They seemed to have died before having finished. Probably
too
much to do simultaneously. I have disabled and re-enabled quota and will set the quotas again with more time.
Is there a way to restart a crawler that was killed too soon?
No. the disable and enable of quota starts a new crawl.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
If I restart a server while a crawler is running, will the crawler be restarted, too? We'll need to do some hardware fixing on one of the servers
soon
and I need to know whether I have to check the crawlers first before shutting it down.
During the shutdown of the server the crawl will be killed. (data
usage shown will be updated as per what has been crawled)
The crawl won't be restarted on starting the server. Only quotad will
be restarted (which is not the same as crawl).
For the crawl to happen you will have to restart the quota.

Hi,
Can you check if the quota crawl finished? Without it having finished
the quota list will show incorrect values.
Looking at the under accounting, it looks like the crawl is not yet
finished ( it does take a lot of time as it has to crawl the whole
filesystem).
If the crawl has finished and the usage is still showing wrong values
then there should be an accounting issue.
The easy way to fix this is to try restarting quota. This will not
cause any problems. The only downside is the limits won't hold true
while the quota is disabled,
till its enabled and the crawl finishes.
Or you can try using the quota fsck script
https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/19179/ to fix your
accounting issue.
Regards,
Hari.

Hi,
we're running a Distributed Dispersed volume with Gluster 3.12.14 at
Debian 9.6 (Stretch).
We migrated our data (>300TB) from a pure Distributed volume into this
Dispersed volume with cp, followed by multiple rsyncs.
After the migration was successful we enabled quotas again with "gluster
volume quota $VOLUME enable", which finished successfully.
And we set our required quotas with "gluster volume quota $VOLUME
limit-usage $PATH $QUOTA", which finished without errors too.
But our "gluster volume quota $VOLUME list" shows wrong values.
A directory with ~170TB of data shows only 40.8TB Used.
When we sum up all quoted directories we're way under the ~310TB that
"df -h /$volume" shows.
And "df -h /$volume/$directory" shows wrong values for nearly all
directories.
All 72 8TB-bricks and all quota deamons of the 6 servers are visible and
online in "gluster volume status $VOLUME".

And I'm unsure about the necessary version flag.
Has anyone an idea how to fix this?

Hi,

we have no notifications of OOM kills in /var/log/messages. So if I understood this correctly, the crawls finished but my attributes weren't set
correctly? And this script should fix them?

Thanks for your help so far

Hi Hari,
I disabled and re-enabled the quota and I saw the crawlers starting. However, this caused a pretty high load on my servers (200+) and this seem to
have gotten them killed again. At least, I have no crawlers running, the quotas are not matching the output of du -h, and the crawler logs all
contain
The quota crawl is an intensive process as it has to crawl the entire
file system. The intensity varies based on the number of bricks,
number of files,
the depth of filesystem, on going io to the filesystem and so on.
Being a disperse volume it will have to talk to all the bricks and
also with the huge size, the
increase in the CPU is expected.

If you see those messages then the shutdown is because of the increase

Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
I suspect this means my file attributes are not set correctly. Would the script you sent me fix that? And the script seems to be part of the Git
GlusterFS 5.0 repo. We are running 3.12. Would it still work on 3.12 (or 4.1, since we'll be upgrading soon) or could it break things?
Quota is not actively developed because of its performance issues
which need a major redesign. So the script holds true for newer
version as well,
because no changes have gone in the code for it.
The advantage of the script is it can be used to run over a certain
directory (need not be root. this reduce the number of directories/
files depth and so on) which is faulty.
The crawl is necessary for the quota to work fine. The script can help
only if the xattrs are set by the crawl. which I think isn't the case
here.
(To verify if the xattrs are set on all the directories we need to do
a getxattr and see) So we can't use script.

Yes. In that case you can run the script and see what errors it is
throwing and then clean that directory up with setting dirty and then
doing a lookup.
Again for such a huge size, it will consume a lot of resource.

Hi Hari,

I'm sorry to bother you again, but I have a few questions concerning the script.

Do I understand correctly that I have to execute it once per brick on each server?
It is a dispersed volume, so the file size on brick side and on client side can differ. Is that a problem?

Is it a reasonable way of action if I first run "python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir $brickpath" to see if it reports something and if yes, run
"python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir --fix-issues $mountpoint $brickpath" to correct them?

I'd run "du -h $mountpoint/broken_dir" from client side as a lookup. Is that sufficient?

Will further action be required or should this be enough?

Kind regards

Gudrun

The crawl won't be restarted on starting the server. Only quotad will
be restarted (which is not the same as crawl).
For the crawl to happen you will have to restart the quota.

Hi,
Can you check if the quota crawl finished? Without it having finished
the quota list will show incorrect values.
Looking at the under accounting, it looks like the crawl is not yet
finished ( it does take a lot of time as it has to crawl the whole
filesystem).
If the crawl has finished and the usage is still showing wrong values
then there should be an accounting issue.
The easy way to fix this is to try restarting quota. This will not
cause any problems. The only downside is the limits won't hold true
while the quota is disabled,
till its enabled and the crawl finishes.
Or you can try using the quota fsck script
https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/19179/ to fix your
accounting issue.
Regards,
Hari.

Hi,
we're running a Distributed Dispersed volume with Gluster 3.12.14 at
Debian 9.6 (Stretch).
We migrated our data (>300TB) from a pure Distributed volume into this
Dispersed volume with cp, followed by multiple rsyncs.
After the migration was successful we enabled quotas again with "gluster
volume quota $VOLUME enable", which finished successfully.
And we set our required quotas with "gluster volume quota $VOLUME
limit-usage $PATH $QUOTA", which finished without errors too.
But our "gluster volume quota $VOLUME list" shows wrong values.
A directory with ~170TB of data shows only 40.8TB Used.
When we sum up all quoted directories we're way under the ~310TB that
"df -h /$volume" shows.
And "df -h /$volume/$directory" shows wrong values for nearly all
directories.
All 72 8TB-bricks and all quota deamons of the 6 servers are visible and
online in "gluster volume status $VOLUME".

I already found that setting the flag "trusted.glusterfs.quota.dirty" might help, but I'm unsure about the consequences that will be

Hi Hari,
I'm sorry to bother you again, but I have a few questions concerning the script.
Do I understand correctly that I have to execute it once per brick on each server?
Yes. On all the servers.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
It is a dispersed volume, so the file size on brick side and on client side can differ. Is that a problem?
The size on brick is aggregated by the quota daemon and the displayed
on the client. If there was a problem with the aggregation
(caused due to missed updates in the brick) then we see a different
size reported. As its a distributed file system this is how it works.
To fix these missed updates, we need to find where the updates are
missed. and then on these missed directories we need to set a
dirty flag (on the directories of all bricks) and then do a stat on
this directory from the client. As the client will see the dirty flag
in the xattr,
it will try to fix the values that are accounted wrong and update the
right value.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
Is it a reasonable way of action if I first run "python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir $brickpath" to see if it reports something and if yes, run
The script can be run with fix-issues argument in a single go, but we
haven't tested the fix issues side intensively.
As the above command shows you where the problem is, we can explicitly
set the dirty flag and then do a lookup to fix the issue.
This will help you understand where the issue is.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
"python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir --fix-issues $mountpoint $brickpath" to correct them?
The fix issue argument actually makes changes to the brick (changes
only related to quota. which can be fixed with a restart)
But as the restart is not crawling completely, We will come back to
the script in case if there is an abnormality seen.

So you can run the script in two ways:
1) without --fix-issues and then see where the issue is. And then set
the dirty flag on all the bricks of that directory of the brick and
the do a stat from the client.
2) with fix-issue this should take care of both the setting dirty flag
and then doing a stat on it.

You can choose any one of the above. Both has its own benefits:
Without fix-issues: you need to do a lot of work, but its scrutinized.
So the changes you make to the backend are fine.

with fix-issues (you just need to run it once along with this arguement)
It changes the xattr values related to quota on the backend and fixes
it. Looking at the size of your volume, if some thing goes wrong then
we are left with
useless quota values. To clean this up is where restart of quota comes
into play. And with your volume size, the restart doesn't fix the
whole system.

So both the ways things are fine.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
I'd run "du -h $mountpoint/broken_dir" from client side as a lookup. Is that sufficient?
yep. Necessary only if you are running the script without the --fix-issues .

Will further action be required or should this be enough?
Kind regards
Gudrun

Yes. In that case you can run the script and see what errors it is
throwing and then clean that directory up with setting dirty and then

Again for such a huge size, it will consume a lot of resource.

Hi Hari,
I disabled and re-enabled the quota and I saw the crawlers starting. However, this caused a pretty high load on my servers (200+) and this
seem to
have gotten them killed again. At least, I have no crawlers running, the quotas are not matching the output of du -h, and the crawler logs all
contain
The quota crawl is an intensive process as it has to crawl the entire
file system. The intensity varies based on the number of bricks,
number of files,
the depth of filesystem, on going io to the filesystem and so on.
Being a disperse volume it will have to talk to all the bricks and
also with the huge size, the
increase in the CPU is expected.

This can mean that the file attributes are set and then its stopped/
as you said the process was killed while it still has the attributes
to be set on a few set of files.
This message is common for all the shutdown (one triggered after the
job is finished and one triggered to stop the process as well)
Can you check the /var/log/messages file for "OOM" kill?
If you see those messages then the shutdown is because of the increase
in memory consumption which is expected.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
I suspect this means my file attributes are not set correctly. Would the script you sent me fix that? And the script seems to be part of the
Git
GlusterFS 5.0 repo. We are running 3.12. Would it still work on 3.12 (or 4.1, since we'll be upgrading soon) or could it break things?
Quota is not actively developed because of its performance issues
which need a major redesign. So the script holds true for newer
version as well,
because no changes have gone in the code for it.
The advantage of the script is it can be used to run over a certain
directory (need not be root. this reduce the number of directories/
files depth and so on) which is faulty.
The crawl is necessary for the quota to work fine. The script can help
only if the xattrs are set by the crawl. which I think isn't the case
here.
(To verify if the xattrs are set on all the directories we need to do
a getxattr and see) So we can't use script.

Hi,
I think I know what happened. According to the logs, the crawlers recieved a signum(15). They seemed to have died before having finished.
Probably
too
much to do simultaneously. I have disabled and re-enabled quota and will set the quotas again with more time.
Is there a way to restart a crawler that was killed too soon?
No. the disable and enable of quota starts a new crawl.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
If I restart a server while a crawler is running, will the crawler be restarted, too? We'll need to do some hardware fixing on one of the
servers
soon
and I need to know whether I have to check the crawlers first before shutting it down.
During the shutdown of the server the crawl will be killed. (data
usage shown will be updated as per what has been crawled)
The crawl won't be restarted on starting the server. Only quotad will
be restarted (which is not the same as crawl).
For the crawl to happen you will have to restart the quota.

Hi Hari,

I think I have indeed found a hint at to where the error is. As in, the script gives me an error. This is what happens:

# python /root/glusterscripts/quotas/quota_fsch.py  --sub-dir $broken_dir $brick

This looks kind of wrong, so I ran the script with --full-logs. The result is longer and it contains this:

Verbose                  /$somefile_1

posix.stat_result(st_mode=33188, st_ino=8120161795, st_dev=65034, st_nlink=2, st_uid=1052, st_gid=1032, st_size=512, st_atime=1538539390,

st_mtime=1542645844, st_ctime=1542709397)


This looks even more wrong, so I took a look at the file attributes:


# getfattr -e hex -d -m. --no-dereference /$somefile_1

# file: $somefile_1

So, no quota file attributes. This doesn't look good to me.. 
I also took a look at the attributes of $broken_dir and I think dirty is already set:

Does that mean that the crawlers didn't finish their jobs?

I suspect this means my file attributes are not set correctly. Would the script you sent me fix that? And the script seems to be part of
the
Git
GlusterFS 5.0 repo. We are running 3.12. Would it still work on 3.12 (or 4.1, since we'll be upgrading soon) or could it break things?
Quota is not actively developed because of its performance issues
which need a major redesign. So the script holds true for newer
version as well,
because no changes have gone in the code for it.
The advantage of the script is it can be used to run over a certain
directory (need not be root. this reduce the number of directories/
files depth and so on) which is faulty.
The crawl is necessary for the quota to work fine. The script can help
only if the xattrs are set by the crawl. which I think isn't the case
here.
(To verify if the xattrs are set on all the directories we need to do
a getxattr and see) So we can't use script.

Hi,
I think I know what happened. According to the logs, the crawlers recieved a signum(15). They seemed to have died before having
finished.
Probably
too
much to do simultaneously. I have disabled and re-enabled quota and will set the quotas again with more time.
Is there a way to restart a crawler that was killed too soon?
No. the disable and enable of quota starts a new crawl.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
If I restart a server while a crawler is running, will the crawler be restarted, too? We'll need to do some hardware fixing on one of
the
servers
soon
and I need to know whether I have to check the crawlers first before shutting it down.
During the shutdown of the server the crawl will be killed. (data
usage shown will be updated as per what has been crawled)
The crawl won't be restarted on starting the server. Only quotad will
be restarted (which is not the same as crawl).
For the crawl to happen you will have to restart the quota.

Hi,
Can you check if the quota crawl finished? Without it having finished
the quota list will show incorrect values.
Looking at the under accounting, it looks like the crawl is not yet
finished ( it does take a lot of time as it has to crawl the whole
filesystem).
If the crawl has finished and the usage is still showing wrong values
then there should be an accounting issue.
The easy way to fix this is to try restarting quota. This will not
cause any problems. The only downside is the limits won't hold true
while the quota is disabled,
till its enabled and the crawl finishes.
Or you can try using the quota fsck script
https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/19179/ to fix your
accounting issue.

Hari.

Hi,
we're running a Distributed Dispersed volume with Gluster 3.12.14 at
Debian 9.6 (Stretch).
We migrated our data (>300TB) from a pure Distributed volume into this
Dispersed volume with cp, followed by multiple rsyncs.
After the migration was successful we enabled quotas again with "gluster
volume quota $VOLUME enable", which finished successfully.
And we set our required quotas with "gluster volume quota $VOLUME
limit-usage $PATH $QUOTA", which finished without errors too.
But our "gluster volume quota $VOLUME list" shows wrong values.
A directory with ~170TB of data shows only 40.8TB Used.
When we sum up all quoted directories we're way under the ~310TB that
"df -h /$volume" shows.
And "df -h /$volume/$directory" shows wrong values for nearly all
directories.
All 72 8TB-bricks and all quota deamons of the 6 servers are visible and
online in "gluster volume status $VOLUME".

As the crawl is shutdown, a kill should have been issued.
Its not an OOM kill as you didn't see the message in /var/log/messages
So it should either be killed by you through some means like a node restart,
volume stop, or an explicit kill.

To fix this, we need to restart quota.

Hi Hari,
I'm sorry to bother you again, but I have a few questions concerning the script.
Do I understand correctly that I have to execute it once per brick on each server?
Yes. On all the servers.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
It is a dispersed volume, so the file size on brick side and on client side can differ. Is that a problem?
The size on brick is aggregated by the quota daemon and the displayed
on the client. If there was a problem with the aggregation
(caused due to missed updates in the brick) then we see a different
size reported. As its a distributed file system this is how it works.
To fix these missed updates, we need to find where the updates are
missed. and then on these missed directories we need to set a
dirty flag (on the directories of all bricks) and then do a stat on
this directory from the client. As the client will see the dirty flag
in the xattr,
it will try to fix the values that are accounted wrong and update the
right value.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
Is it a reasonable way of action if I first run "python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir $brickpath" to see if it reports something and if yes,
run
The script can be run with fix-issues argument in a single go, but we
haven't tested the fix issues side intensively.
As the above command shows you where the problem is, we can explicitly
set the dirty flag and then do a lookup to fix the issue.
This will help you understand where the issue is.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
"python quota_fsck.py --subdir $broken_dir --fix-issues $mountpoint $brickpath" to correct them?
The fix issue argument actually makes changes to the brick (changes
only related to quota. which can be fixed with a restart)
But as the restart is not crawling completely, We will come back to
the script in case if there is an abnormality seen.
1) without --fix-issues and then see where the issue is. And then set
the dirty flag on all the bricks of that directory of the brick and
the do a stat from the client.
2) with fix-issue this should take care of both the setting dirty flag
and then doing a stat on it.
Without fix-issues: you need to do a lot of work, but its scrutinized.
So the changes you make to the backend are fine.
with fix-issues (you just need to run it once along with this arguement)
It changes the xattr values related to quota on the backend and fixes
it. Looking at the size of your volume, if some thing goes wrong then
we are left with
useless quota values. To clean this up is where restart of quota comes
into play. And with your volume size, the restart doesn't fix the
whole system.
So both the ways things are fine.
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
I'd run "du -h $mountpoint/broken_dir" from client side as a lookup. Is that sufficient?
yep. Necessary only if you are running the script without the --fix-issues .
Post by Gudrun Mareike Amedick
Will further action be required or should this be enough?
Kind regards
Gudrun
Post by Hari Gowtham
Yes. In that case you can run the script and see what errors it is
throwing and then clean that directory up with setting dirty and then
doing a lookup.
Again for such a huge size, it will consume a lot of resource.

Hi,
we have no notifications of OOM kills in /var/log/messages. So if I understood this correctly, the crawls finished but my attributes weren't

Hi Hari,
I disabled and re-enabled the quota and I saw the crawlers starting. However, this caused a pretty high load on my servers (200+) and this
seem to
have gotten them killed again. At least, I have no crawlers running, the quotas are not matching the output of du -h, and the crawler logs
all
contain
The quota crawl is an intensive process as it has to crawl the entire
file system. The intensity varies based on the number of bricks,
number of files,
the depth of filesystem, on going io to the filesystem and so on.
Being a disperse volume it will have to talk to all the bricks and
also with the huge size, the
increase in the CPU is expected.
