Bug Description

In most cases tests from tempest.api.compute.volumes.test_attach_volume.AttachVolumeShelveTestJSON module are failing in tempest-slow job.
Example of failure: http://logs.openstack.org/84/631584/2/check/tempest-slow/fcb7332/testr_results.html.gz

I think that it happens because of https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584/ and it is probably some (yet another) race condition :/

Maybe https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584/ isn't culprit of this issue. I will need to investigate more if that will still happen so often.

After some more digging into results of jobs, it looks that it might be that this patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584/ is causing this issue.
I have no idea why it happens like that but tempest-slow job is running fine each time on revert of this patch (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631944/) and failing on most of the other patches.

I'm trying to reproduce it on my local env but with no luck so far :/

Using the following query:


We can see that the errors in Neutron started to show up at the time https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584 merged. Prior to that, the failures in this test case were mostly in Nova and some Cinder, with the failure being:

tempest.exceptions.BuildErrorException: Server 3da71d4f-e884-4487-a692-be6671fed440 failed to build and is in ERROR status

After the merge of https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584, the failures in Neutron, Nova, Cinder and Tempest all become:

tempest.lib.exceptions.SSHTimeout: Connection to the via SSH timed out

And we can see that the affected instance doesn't get ip address lease from DHCP:

Starting network...
udhcpc (v1.23.2) started
Sending discover...
Sending discover...
Sending discover...

That indicates the instance is not connected to the network

In agent.log the following exception seems several times:
"OVSFWPortNotFound: Port <> is not managed by this agent"

If I understand well this patch: https://review.openstack.org/630910 (Bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1811405 ) handle another case with tag not found exception.

One more info which I found related to this one. It always (at least in cases where I was checking it) failing after unshelve instance. And also it looks for me from logs that instance is unshelved on different host than it was before shelve but I'm not sure if that is ok or not.

I pushed to gate some DNM patch with some additional logging in OVSDBMonitor class. It is here: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/632403/
tempest-slow job was failed on this patch so I analyzed logs. for one of instances (910177fa-711f-4c97-9bdc-d8d954d0fb32 from test test_attach_volume_shelved_or_offload_server in http://logs.openstack.org/03/632403/2/check/tempest-slow/de2a3c7/testr_results.html.gz)

Port of this instance was 74ee60ef-5570-43c8-8eb9-887a2fbf6cd9.
Instance was spawned first on controller node and later unshelved on compute-1 node.
So I analyzed logs from neutron-ovs-agent on compute-1 node.

Port of this instance was indeed skipped by ovsdb_monitor class here: http://logs.openstack.org/03/632403/2/check/tempest-slow/de2a3c7/compute1/logs/screen-neutron-agent.txt.gz#_Jan_22_12_04_11_868196 but there was also even for this port with correct ofport in almost same time.
So it ended up that this port was in both "added" and "removed" events dictionary: http://logs.openstack.org/03/632403/2/check/tempest-slow/de2a3c7/compute1/logs/screen-neutron-agent.txt.gz#_Jan_22_12_04_11_870840 and that isn't in fact something very unexpected because neutron_ovs_agent can handle it: https://github.com/openstack/neutron/blob/master/neutron/plugins/ml2/drivers/openvswitch/agent/ovs_neutron_agent.py#L1357

So I continue looking at neutron-openvswitch-agent logs and this port was in fact configured properly few seconds later: http://logs.openstack.org/03/632403/2/check/tempest-slow/de2a3c7/compute1/logs/screen-neutron-agent.txt.gz#_Jan_22_12_04_11_882998

Now I checked DHCP logs as in VM's console log there is info that VM didn't have network configured properly with DHCP. And what I found is that there were DHCP requests send from VM properly and DHCP server replied also: http://logs.openstack.org/03/632403/2/check/tempest-slow/de2a3c7/controller/logs/screen-q-dhcp.txt.gz#_Jan_22_12_04_31_177806 - this happened 3 times in 3 minutes which is correct according to VM's console log too.

Based on this analysis I still have no idea why those tests are failing, why it happens so often after patch https://review.openstack.org/#/c/631584/ and if this patch really have any impact on those failures or maybe it's just coincidence.

Seems to align with when this started spiking the failures in tempest-slow:


The special thing about the tempest-slow job is it runs 2 nodes and it runs slow tests so tests that don't normally get run in other jobs like tempest-full.
