You are absolutely right. Nullfs vnode keeps a reference to the lower vnode which is below the nullfs one, i.e. to the nfs vnode in this case. If cache option is specified for the nullfs mount (default), the nullfs vnodes are cached normally to avoid the cost of creating and destroying nullfs vnode on each operation, and related cost of the exclusive locks on the lower vnode.
An answer to my question in the previous mail to try with nocache option would give the confirmation. Really, I suspected that v_hash is calculated differently for NFSv3 and v4 mounts, but if opens are accumulated until use ref is dropped, that would explain things as well. Assuming your diagnosis is correct, are you in fact stating that the current VFS KPI is flawed ? It sounds as if either some another callback or counter needs to exist to track number of mapping references to the vm object of the vnode, in addition to VOP_OPEN/VOP_CLOSE ? Currently a rough estimation of the number of mappings, which is sometimes slightly wrong, can be obtained by the expression vp->v_object->ref_count - vp->v_object->shadow_count > >LocalLock > > 0 > >Rpc Info: > >TimedOut Invalid X Replies Retries Requests > > 0 0 0 0 662 > >Cache Info: > >Attr Hits Misses Lkup Hits Misses BioR Hits Misses BioW Hits > >Misses > > 1275 58 837 121 0 0 0 > > 0 > >BioRLHits Misses BioD Hits Misses DirE Hits Misses > > 1 0 6 0 1 0 > > > [more stuff snipped] > >What role could nullfs be playing? > As noted above, my hunch is that is acquiring a refcnt on the NFS client > vnode such > that the v_usecount doesn't go to zero (at least for a long time) and without > a VOP_INACTIVE() on the NFSv4 vnode, the NFSv4 Opens don't get closed and > accumulate. > (If that isn't correct, it is somehow interfering with the client Closing the > NFSv4 Opens > in some other way.) The following patch should automatically unset cache option for nullfs mounts over NFSv4 filesystem. diff --git a/sys/fs/nfsclient/nfs_clvfsops.c b/sys/fs/nfsclient/nfs_clvfsops.c index 524a372..a7e9fe3 100644 --- a/sys/fs/nfsclient/nfs_clvfsops.c +++ b/sys/fs/nfsclient/nfs_clvfsops.c @@ -1320,6 +1320,8 @@ out: MNT_ILOCK(mp); mp->mnt_kern_flag |= MNTK_LOOKUP_SHARED | MNTK_NO_IOPF | MNTK_USES_BCACHE; + if ((VFSTONFS(mp)->nm_flag & NFSMNT_NFSV4) != 0) + mp->mnt_kern_flag |= MNTK_NULL_NOCACHE; MNT_IUNLOCK(mp); } return (error); diff --git a/sys/fs/nullfs/null_vfsops.c b/sys/fs/nullfs/null_vfsops.c index 49bae28..de05e8b 100644 --- a/sys/fs/nullfs/null_vfsops.c +++ b/sys/fs/nullfs/null_vfsops.c @@ -188,7 +188,8 @@ nullfs_mount(struct mount *mp) } xmp->nullm_flags |= NULLM_CACHE; - if (vfs_getopt(mp->mnt_optnew, "nocache", NULL, NULL) == 0) + if (vfs_getopt(mp->mnt_optnew, "nocache", NULL, NULL) == 0 || + (xmp->nullm_vfs->mnt_kern_flag & MNTK_NULL_NOCACHE) != 0) xmp->nullm_flags &= ~NULLM_CACHE; MNT_ILOCK(mp); diff --git a/sys/sys/mount.h b/sys/sys/mount.h index 94cabb6..b6f9fec 100644 --- a/sys/sys/mount.h +++ b/sys/sys/mount.h @@ -370,7 +370,8 @@ void __mnt_vnode_markerfree_active(struct vnode **mvp, struct mount *); #define MNTK_SUSPEND 0x08000000 /* request write suspension */ #define MNTK_SUSPEND2 0x04000000 /* block secondary writes */ #define MNTK_SUSPENDED 0x10000000 /* write operations are suspended */ -#define MNTK_UNUSED1 0x20000000 +#define MNTK_NULL_NOCACHE 0x20000000 /* auto disable cache for nullfs + mounts over this fs */ #define MNTK_LOOKUP_SHARED 0x40000000 /* FS supports shared lock lookups */ #define MNTK_NOKNOTE 0x80000000 /* Don't send KNOTEs from VOP hooks */ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
