The direct I/O check has failed.
So something is wrong in the files system.
To confirm, you can try to do:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/path/to/mountoint/test bs=4096 count=1 oflag=direct
This will probably fail with:
dd: failed to open '/path/to/mountoint/test': Invalid argument
If it succeeds, but oVirt fail to connect to this domain, file a bug and
we will investigate.
Yep, it fails as expected. Just to check, it is working on pre-existing
volumes, so I poked around at gluster settings for the new volume. It has
network.remote-dio=off set on the new volume, but enabled on old volumes.
After enabling it, I’m able to run the dd test:
[root@boneyard mnt]# gluster vol set test network.remote-dio enable
volume set: success
[root@boneyard mnt]# dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=4096 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
4096 bytes (4.1 kB) copied, 0.0018285 s, 2.2 MB/s
I’m also able to add the storage domain in ovirt now.
I see network.remote-dio=enable is part of the gluster virt group, so
apparently it’s not getting set by ovirt duding the volume creation/optimze
I'm not sure who is responsible for changing these settings. oVirt always
required directio, and we
never had to change anything in gluster.
Sahina, maybe gluster changed the defaults?
Darrell, please file a bug, probably for RHHI.
