[ovirt-users] Disks Snapshot

2016-03-12 Thread Marcelo Leandro
Good morning

I have a doubt, when i do a snapshot, a new lvm is generated, however
when I delete this snapshot the lvm not off, that's right?

[ovirt-users] QEMU GlusterFS support in oVirt

2016-03-12 Thread Samuli Heinonen
Hello all,

It seems that oVirt 3.6 is still using FUSE to access GlusterFS storage domains 
instead of using QEMU driver (libgfapi). As far as I know libgfapi support 
should be available in Libvirt and QEMU packages provided in CentOS 7. Is there 
any workarounds how to use libgfapi with oVirt before it’s officially available?

Best regards,
Samuli Heinonen

We started to work this during 3.6 development, but the work was
suspended because
libvirt and qemu do not support multiple gluster servers [1]. This
means that if your single
server is down, you will not be able to connect to gluster.

Recently Niels suggested that we use DNS for this purpose - if the DNS
return multiple
servers, libgafpi should be able to failover to one of these servers,
so connecting with
single server address should good as multiple server support in libvirt or qemu.

The changes needed to support this are not big as you can see in [2],
[3]. However the work
was not completed and I don't know if it will completed for 4.0.

I don't know about any.

And in case the local oVirt Node is part of the Gluster Trusted Storage
Pool (aka running GlusterD), qemu can use "localhost" to connect to the
storage too. It is only the initial connection that would benefit from
the added fail-over by multiple hosts. Once the connection is
established, qemu/libgfapi will connect to all the bricks that
participate in the volume. That means that only starting or attaching a
new disk to a running VM is impacted when the gluster:// URL is used
with a storage server that is down. In case oVirt/VDSM knows what
storage servers are up, it could even select one of those and not use a
server that is down.

I've left a similar note in [1], maybe it encourages to start with a
"single host" solution. Extending it for multiple hostnames should then
be pretty simple, and it allows us to start furter testing and doing
other integration bits.

And in case someone cares about (raw) sparse files (not possible over
FUSE, only with Linux 4.5), glusterfs-3.8 will provide a huge
improvement. A qemu patch for utilizing it is under review at [4].

HTH,
Niels

Since this is only used to fetch volume information when connecting to Gluster 
volume I don’t think it should be treated as blocking issue. If we lose one 
storage server that’s a problem we have to fix as soon as possible anyway. Even 
then hypervisors are already connected to other storage servers and there is no 
need to fetch volume information again. Also there are other ways to work 
around this like having a separate hostname that is used to fetch volume 
information and which can then be pointed to server that’s up.

It would be great if libgfapi could be available even as selectable option so 
it could be tested in real world situation.

Thank you for these links. I’ll see if this is something we can try out in our 
test environment

[ovirt-users] VM get stuck randomly

2016-03-12 Thread Christophe TREFOIS
Dear all,

I have a problem since couple of weeks, where randomly 1 VM (not always the 
same) becomes completely unresponsive.
We find this out because our Icinga server complains that host is down.

Upon inspection, we find we can’t open a console to the VM, nor can we login.

In oVirt engine, the VM looks like “up”. The only weird thing is that RAM usage 
shows 0% and CPU usage shows 100% or 75% depending on number of cores.
The only way to recover is to force shutdown the VM via 2-times shutdown from 
the engine.

Could you please help me to start debugging this?
I can provide any logs, but I’m not sure which ones, because I couldn’t see 
anything with ERROR in the vdsm logs on the host.

The host is running 

OS Version: RHEL - 7 - 1.1503.el7.centos.2.8
Kernel Version: 3.10.0 - 229.14.1.el7.x86_64
KVM Version:2.1.2 - 23.el7_1.8.1
LIBVIRT Version:libvirt-1.2.8-16.el7_1.4
VDSM Version:   vdsm-4.16.26-0.el7.centos
SPICE Version:  0.12.4 - 9.el7_1.3
GlusterFS Version:  glusterfs-3.7.5-1.el7

We use a locally exported gluster as storage domain (eg, storage is on the same 
machine exposed via gluster). No replica.
We run around 50 VMs on that host.

Thank you for your help in this,

—
Christophe
