2018-01-21 Thread Yaniv Kaul
Grafana , The open platform for beautiful analytics
and monitoring, recently added support for PostgreSQL
.

It in now possible to connect Grafana to oVirt DWH
, in order to
visualize and monitor the oVirt environment.

[ovirt-users] New post on oVirt blog: Build oVirt Reports Using Grafana

2018-01-21 Thread Shirly Radco
Hello everyone,

A new oVirt blog post has been published, on how to build oVirt reports
using Grafana.
This allows connecting to oVirt DWH and create dashboards for System,
Hosts, VMs, Storage domains etc.

See https://ovirt.org/blog/2018/01/ovirt-report-using-grafana/ for the full
post.

For more information you can contact me.

Best regards,

Re: [ovirt-users] hosted-engine unknow stale-data

2018-01-21 Thread Artem Tambovskiy
Hello Kasturi,

Yes, I set global maintenance mode intentionally,
I'm run out of the ideas troubleshooting my cluster and decided to undeploy
the hosted engine from second host, clean the installation and add again to
the cluster.
Also I cleaned the metadata with *hosted-engine --clean-metadata
--host-id=2 --force-clean *But once I added the second host to the cluster
again it doesn't show the capability to run hosted engine. And doesn't even
appear in the output hosted-engine --vm-status
[root@ovirt1 ~]#hosted-engine --vm-status --== Host 1 status ==--
conf_on_shared_storage : True Status up-to-date : True Hostname :
ovirt1.telia.ru Host ID : 1 Engine status : {"health": "good", "vm": "up",
"detail": "up"} Score : 3400 stopped : False Local maintenance : False
crc32 : a23c7cbd local_conf_timestamp : 848931 Host timestamp : 848930
Extra metadata (valid at timestamp): metadata_parse_version=1
metadata_feature_version=1 timestamp=848930 (Mon Jan 22 09:53:29 2018)
host-id=1 score=3400 vm_conf_refresh_time=848931 (Mon Jan 22 09:53:29 2018)
conf_on_shared_storage=True maintenance=False state=GlobalMaintenance
stopped=False

On redeployed second host I see unknown-stale-data again, and second host
doesn't show up as a hosted-engine capable.
[root@ovirt2 ~]# hosted-engine --vm-status


--== Host 1 status ==--

conf_on_shared_storage : True
Status up-to-date  : False
Hostname   : ovirt1.telia.ru
Host ID: 1
Engine status  : unknown stale-data
Score  : 0
stopped: False
Local maintenance  : False
crc32  : 18765f68
local_conf_timestamp   : 848951
Host timestamp : 848951
Extra metadata (valid at timestamp):
metadata_parse_version=1
metadata_feature_version=1
timestamp=848951 (Mon Jan 22 09:53:49 2018)

conf_on_shared_storage=True

Really strange situation ...

There are many details missing, including versions of everything used, but

Re: [ovirt-users] hosted-engine unknow stale-data

2018-01-21 Thread Kasturi Narra
Hello Artem,

Any reason why you chose hosted-engine undeploy action for the second
host ? I see that the cluster is in global maintenance mode, was this
intended ?

command to clear the entries from hosted-engine --vm-status is "hosted-engine
--clean-metadata --host-id= --force-clean"

Hope this helps !!

Thanks
kasturi

[ovirt-users] Hosted-engine without mac-spoofing

2018-01-21 Thread Matteo Capuano
Hi folks,

i'm trying to install oVirt hyperconverged on Google Cloud Engine (GCE) to
create a lab environment.
Nested virtualization on GCE is in public beta, it seems to work fine but
there's a catch: i cannot enable mac-spoofing on the GCE instances' nics.
So here's my question: is there a way to install hosted-engine on a network
there you can't enabling mac-spoofing?

Thank you

Cheers

Matteo

Re: [ovirt-users] OVS not running / logwatch error after upgrade from 4.0.6 to 4.1.8

Hi,

I tried creating the directory but then it complained about missing log
files.

I think I'm just going to block out the logwatch file.

It's annoying that the default config bleats out.

Thanks for the feedback.

That's because on block storage we use native io and not threads. I assume
the hook needs to change to use native io in this case.

[ovirt-users] oVirt 4.2 - Removed disk remains in VM OS with hooks?

2018-01-21 Thread Zip
I am having an issue where when I use the REST API to connect a snapshot
from another VM to a Backup-Appliance-VM, after the clone when I remove the
Disk and delete the Snapshot, the disk remains in the Backup-Appliance-VM as
/dev/sdb ot /dev/vdb.

If I reboot the Bakup-Applicance-VM the disk disappears.

If I manually remove the disk by "echo 1 > /sys/block/sdb/device/delete² the
disk will disappear, but if I rescan the scsi bus, it is found and shows up
again in the VM OS, but the oVirt WebGUI does NOT show it as connected.

I am also not able to attach any other disks as it complains of :

HotPlugDiskVDS failed: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command
'__com.redhat_drive_add': Duplicate ID 'drive-scsi0-0-0-2' for drive

I did see that others in the past have gotten around this issue by rebooting
the Backup-Appliance-VM and then continuing on with the next VM backup and
looping through backup-reboot-backup-reboot-etc.

Anyone have an idea on how to solve this issue and remove the hooks from the
guest OS?

Steps to reproduce this issue:

1. Create a backup appliance VM to be used for the backup script execution
2. Currently I have the Vms set to virtio with threaded I/O enabled. Also
tried virtio_scsi with same result.
3. Using REST API ­ make snapshot of target VM
4. Using REST API ­ fetch vm metadata
5. Using REST API ­ attach the snapshot/disk to the Backup-Appliance-VM
6. dd the drive to backup folder
7. Using REST API ­ remove the disk from the Backup-Appliance-VM
8. Using REST API ­ delete the snapshot
9. ** Check the guest OS of the Backup-Appliance-VM and the mounted drive
from the backup above still appears and behaves as mentioned in comments
above.

A second issue is that the above wont work when I have the Vms running on
MPIO iSCSI storage, so for testing I have moved to NFS4. Anyone have ideas
about either issue, I¹d love to hear ;)
