Bug Description

After a deployment from a juju bundle, if the user-keys are changed (or inputted incorectly the first time around), running 'juju config ceph-proxy user-keys="client.something:new-ceph-key" doesn't properly get pushed down to the underlying application related to ceph proxy.

For a very specific example.

juju config ceph-proxy user-keys="client.glance:ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUV=="

Will not change the key in /etc/ceph/ceph.client.glance.keyring on the glance server(s)

This is true for any related application, in our case glance, cinder-ceph and gnocchi.

We have to manually go in and change this. Also, the jujud-unit-glance-X doesn't appear to be monitoring this file, in that, if we manually change it, juju never reverts this file back to what it should have been.

This file is generated from the relation to ceph-proxy, so it appears the relation update or config-changed is broken for that relation.

Could we please see the bundle used for the deployment?

Jeff Hillman (jhillman) wrote :

Not easily. This is in a secure environment. I can't pull files off. If you have some explicit sections you want I can retype them. But a full bundle will take ne a while to retype.

Just let me know and if its the full bundle you need i will provide it.

We have verified that there is a problem - it seems to be an issue with updating the actual keyring file - continuing to investigate.

Andrew McLeod (admcleod) wrote :

The problem is specifically with charm-helpers - we've identified the issue and are working on a patch and then testing/approval

I'm picking this up. Andrew has a fix, and the remaining work is to address review comments and discussion, and fix a failing test. PR on github: https://github.com/juju/charm-helpers/pull/265

Charm helpers fixes merged. Next step is to get the right charms updated, as well as drop in functional tests to catch regressions, or adjacent bugs.

Is there a review going for gnocchi?

Pete Vander Giessen (petevg) wrote :

@jhillman: We didn't catch the call to ensure_ceph_keyring in gnocchi.

Since it's a reactive charm, we'll have to cut a release of charmhelpers, and then rebuild the charm.

I think that most of the people who can do a charmhelpers release are flying back from the product Sprint right now. I'll make a note to poke them after they get back.

Everything else is merged, and available on Next.

Fyi for the smoke failure, this is 'gnocchi status' failing. I thought I knew what the fix was for the but I was wrong and have had a hard time debugging the issue. 'gnocchi status' is returning 500 which could mean many things. Unfortunately with all logging/debug on for apache2 and gnocchi there are not many details available. Seems that gnocchi-api is segfaulting. I'd like to get a core dump to see a traceback. I haven't successfully been able to get one yet. I tried several releases and even the stable charm and still hit it. It's possible that a recent stable point release caused a regression but still need to get a traceback or hint to figure out what's failing.

James Page was able to get a traceback from bionic-queens: http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/yMXhpP2jwg/

I confirmed the path in the traceback above isn't taken for the 2 deployments I've been poking at (queens and rocky). Still digging but not tracebacks.

gnocchi smoke (bionic-queens) was last successful against 4.2.5-0ubuntu1 (which is the latest version for queens) in this review. what's changed since? https://review.openstack.org/#/c/626199/

mod-wsgi hasn't changed since bionic released. apache2 was last changed in nov 2018. smoke fails for stable charm too..

'gnocchi-status' seems to consistently work fine for python2-gnocchi

gnocchi status --debug: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/vc5TDs6gyz/

I've tried all sorts of timeout and size options from here with no luck: https://modwsgi.readthedocs.io/en/develop/configuration-directives/WSGIDaemonProcess.html

Note that there were a few very random times that 'gnocchi status' was successful.

Corey Bryant (corey.bryant) wrote :

Note also that settings the threads=1 and processes=1 in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/gnocchi-api.conf doesn't help, though it does help resource usage on the gnocchi unit.

Corey Bryant (corey.bryant) wrote :

I went through all the package changes listed here for Dec and Jan and nothing jumps out as something that could affect gnocchi: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/bionic-changes/

One things is possibly there's a difference in behavior with the new versions of keystone or ceph that's regressing the gnocchi status path?

I have caught a gdb backtrace from the Apache WSGI process after setting threads=1 and processes=1:

Although I have installed the libpython3.6 debug symbols package the frame does not appear to contain useful information.

Including the complete backtrace below:

Trying to decipher what is going on with this bug. Comments 15 thru 25 seem to be about an issue addressed by bug 1813582.

As far as I can tell, this bug is blocked by 1813582 but that bug is fix-committed. If so, are we ready to re-test the fix for this bug?

Are there plans to backport this fix to current stable (18.11) charms?
