[SOLVED] Periodic VM actions only seem to run once?

solved
(Kenneth Van Alstyne) #1

Hello all – I seem to be running into an issue with recurring/periodic VM actions and before I dive to deeply into the code to try to resolve it, I’m wondering if I’m missing something obvious. I can schedule a recurring action (hourly in this case) via the CLI or Sunstone (FWIW in an unrelated note, Sunstone has an error when trying to set the end time to Never which is: [one.vm.update] Cannot update template. Error END_VALUE defined but not valid END_TYPE found), but the action only ever seems to occur once. I would expect it to occur every hour. Am I missing something?

Hi @kvanals

First of all, thanks a lot for reporting the bug in Sunstone, I have opened an issue in our GitHub.

Then, could you please send me the complete sched log, oned log and the output of onevm show 3 -x? I will try to reproduce your issue.

Thanks!

(Kenneth Van Alstyne) #3

Thank you for the reply!

I gathered up the requested logs regarding the periodic events not running more than one time. Unfortunately, I can’t upload the tarball to this forum, as I believe I’m below a certain threshold for uploading attachments. In lieu of that, I uploaded them to a web server on the internet and they are available here:
one-periodic-broken-logs.tar.bz2

At first glance from looking at the database, it looks like perhaps the next event gets scheduled at some date in the past, causing the scheduler to never trigger the next snapshot/event? I don’t see anything immediately obvious in src/vm_template/ScheduledAction.cc, but I’d think the issue would be there. I’ll look more deeply into it on Monday.

Thanks,
Kenny

Hi @kvanals

Thanks for the logs! I inspected them and I didn’t see anything wrong.

Could you try creating the sched action using the CLI? Tell me if it works or if you see the same behaviour.

Thanks!

Hello again @kvanals

It seems to be a bug, we are going to investigate it and fix it.

(Kenneth Van Alstyne) #6

I can create a scheduled event with end period of “Never” just fine via the onevm CLI, however the event still only occurs once and never again, similarly to creating the event in Sunstone.

Thanks,
Kenny

Good morning @kvanals

I have opened an issue in GitHub, so you can track the fix of the bug. The bug has been fixed, I have to check that everything works, so it will be available in the next release of OpenNebula.

Thanks for your feedback and your patient!

Thank you so much! This took you a lot less time to resolve than it would have taken me and it is greatly appreciated. I’m rebuilding my OpenNebula build right now and will test on my side as well.

Thanks,
Kenny

Perfect! Just let me know if you find any error.
