Description pprocacci 2019-11-18 05:33:15 UTC
I believe I'm having similar issues to the following two bug reports but am not 100% sure:


I'm therefore creating a new bug report detailing the problems I have happening.

I've created a 1TB ZVOL and have giving it to ctld for iSCSI attachment elsewhere.
When the host that is copying large amount of data to this ZVOL fires up over iSCSI, the iSCSI disk hangs and eventually disappears.

Furthermore, while this is happening, some processes (not all) on the host itself hang entirely.  zpool related commands hang, attempts to restart ctld hang, a forceful kill of ctld does nothing.

I'm really not sure what information to provide other than my zfs configuration:

zpool status -v
  pool: tank
 state: ONLINE
  scan: none requested

        NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
        tank        ONLINE       0     0     0
          raidz2-0  ONLINE       0     0     0
            ada0    ONLINE       0     0     0
            ada1    ONLINE       0     0     0
            ada2    ONLINE       0     0     0
            ada3    ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

  pool: zroot
 state: ONLINE
  scan: none requested

        NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
        zroot       ONLINE       0     0     0
          nvd0p2    ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors

Other than the above, the only thing I can think to provide are system specs:

CPU: 29.7% user,  0.2% nice,  2.5% system,  0.1% interrupt, 67.4% idle
Mem: 737M Active, 3927M Inact, 13M Laundry, 55G Wired, 2334M Free
ARC: 46G Total, 21G MFU, 21G MRU, 2295M Anon, 204M Header, 1635M Other
     40G Compressed, 41G Uncompressed, 1.02:1 Ratio

.. and perhaps OS version:  # uname -a
FreeBSD nas.myhome 12.1-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE-p1 GENERIC  amd64

If there's a way I can debug this problem while it's occuring, I'd like to know so I can pass it along, but it appears in the other two bug reports I've listed, the problem area is around ZVOL/locking.

I was able to gather a procstat of one of my hung `mv` commands:
