Description L0op8ack 2008-04-25 21:27:17 UTC
Latest working kernel version: 2.6.23.17
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.24
Distribution: kernel.org
Hardware Environment: i386,P4
Software Environment: ipvsadm-1.24
Problem Description:
MATSER ipvs box will push connection table to BACKUP one using multicast,
while the BACKUP ipvs box received the multicast message, 
the BACKUP ipvs box will report BUG() and crash

Steps to reproduce:
               +-------------+
               |192.168.1.123|
               +------+------+
                      |
--------------+-------+------------+--------
              |  VIP:192.168.1.219 |
 MASTER +-----+-----+        +-----+-----+  BACKUP
   eth1 |192.168.1.1|   eth1 |192.168.1.2|
   eth0 |192.168.0.1|   eth0 |192.168.0.2|
        +-----+-----+        +-----+-----+
              |-> multicast sync ->|
--------------+-------+------------+--------
                      |
   real-server +------------+ www service open
               |192.168.0.80| gateway 192.168.0.1
               +------+-----+

1)
MASTER ipvs box:
ipvsadm --start-daemon master --mcast-interface eth0 --syncid 80

BACKUP ipvs box:
ipvsadm --start-daemon backup --mcast-interface eth0 --syncid 80

2)
Both MASTER and BACKUP box:
2.1) define service
ipvsadm -A -t 192.168.1.219:80 -s rr
2.2) add real-server
ipvsadm -a -t 192.168.1.219:80 -r 192.168.0.80:80 -m
# set real-server gateway = 192.168.0.1

3)
client(192.168.1.123) access http://192.168.1.219,
MATSER ipvs box will push connection table to BACKUP one using multicast,
while the BACKUP ipvs box received the multicast message, 
the BACKUP ipvs box report BUG() and crash.

Which will be a bit hard to track down because it seems that pretty much
the whole world got inlined into sync_thread().

Any chance to run

gdb ./vmlinux
$ l *(sync_thread+0x919)

for that kernel, and if it was not compiled with debug info try to do
that and get bug with it?

I'm not ipvs guru, but that will give us at least some hint...

	I can not fully understand the above oops but hope following
fix can help (not tested). It is for 2.6.25. I can provide patch for
2.6.24 if needed (there are rejects):


	Result from ip_vs_proto_get() should be checked because
protocol value can be invalid or unsupported in backup. Also, add
checks to validate message limits and connection state.

Comment 5 L0op8ack 2008-04-26 22:11:51 UTC
I apply theses patches to 2.6.24.4,ipvs connection sync works.

When the BACKUP received connection update,
it reportes
IPVS: Unsupported protocol 0 in sync msg

and, the client table expire timer in BACKUP is incorrect.

	Below is 2nd version that handles templates properly, which
should be the actual problem. Large timeouts in backup look like a
problem in incorrect ipvsadm binary, timeouts are not converted from 
jiffies. Patch follows:

	Result from ip_vs_proto_get() should be checked because
protocol value can be invalid or unsupported in backup. But
for valid message we should not fail for templates which use
IPPROTO_IP. Also, add checks to validate message limits and
connection state. Show NONE for templates.

Comment 7 L0op8ack 2008-04-27 03:40:54 UTC
2nd version patches applied to 2.6.24.4

Connection table in MASTER sync to BACKUP ok.
The BACKUP connection table 'state' always be 'NONE'.

> Large timeouts in backup look like a problem in incorrect ipvsadm binary
It's not a problem in ipvsadm binary.

BACKUP box:
expired connections in BACKUP box will never be removed,
on the contrary, 'expire' changed to a large number.

connection timeouts received by BACKUP are not influenced by persist time of local defined service.
'struct ip_vs_sync_conn' defined in net/ipv4/ipvs/ip_vs_sync.c has no timeout options at all.
Local 'struct ip_vs_timeout_user' timeouts are the only determinant,
that's a bad idea.

	As I said, there should be rejects if you apply patch against
2.6.24.4. I recommend to use patch against 2.6.25 because 2.6.25
has some fixes in ip_vs_sync. I suspect some hunks were not applied
correctly, can you clarify what is the kernel version used now?

	In case you are still using 2.6.24.4 I'm appending new
patch, this time against 2.6.24. Let me know if you see some rejects
when applying patch (Hunk FAILED). Also, if TCP conns in backup
are again NONE and conns are not removed I don't have any explanation,
may be you can enable IPVS debugging? As for timeout, I have never
used IPVS sync, it does not send timeout, I suspect it would be
compatibility issue if timeout and nfmark are added to sync structure.
715827:52 should be jiffies 0xFFFFFFFF (time to expire), may be
you can see them with cat /proc/net/ip_vs_conn


        Result from ip_vs_proto_get() should be checked because
protocol value can be invalid or unsupported in backup. But
for valid message we should not fail for templates which use
IPPROTO_IP. Also, add checks to validate message limits and
connection state. Show NONE for templates.

This patch looks great, and fixes real bugs regardless of the
effect upon the bug report in question.

I would really like to see this fix tested, because if it fixes
the specific bug, all the better, and we should indicate this in
the changelog message.
