Disk resource consumption is inconsistent between scheduler and resource tracker

Bug #1550098 reported by Yingxin on 2016-02-26
This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
OpenStack Compute (nova)

Bug Description

The way scheduler consumes disk resources in host state is inconsistent with RT's way in compute service.

The scheduler consumes "free_disk_mb" in its host state.

It comes from the min value of "free_disk_gb" and "disk_available_least" in ComputeNode object.

But compute node changes "local_gb_used" instead in consuming resources from a request. https://github.com/openstack/nova/blob/master/nova/compute/resource_tracker.py#L709-L710

There is a inconsistent gap(confirmed) of compute node state between scheduler and resource tracker, but somehow the compute node will be updated by virt driver to the consistent status after maybe 10 seconds.

Change to Medium because it is a prerequisite of future schedulers such as resource-provider scheduler and shared-state scheduler.

Hello @Yingxin:

I've seen this error in gate-tempest-dsvm-neutron-identity-v3-only-full-ubuntu-xenial-nv too.

Do you have a fix for this problem? I don't want to step over your solution on this problem. If you are stuck on this bug, do you want to transfer it to me?

A possible solution: to test in https://github.com/openstack/nova/blob/master/nova/scheduler/host_manager.py#L205 if free_gb is None. If it is, assign free_gb = least_gb. What do you think?

Hi Rodolfo,

I had a fix in https://review.openstack.org/#/c/290302/ long ago. I think it still works. It moves the "least_disk_mb" calculation to disk_filter, so free_disk_mb in host manager is now consistent with the resource tracker "free_disk_gb".

If it doesn't fix the error in gate-tempest-dsvm-neutron-identity-v3-only-full-ubuntu-xenial-nv, feel free to upload your version :)
