Bug Description

I'm seeing huge latency sometimes when unmounting ext4 partitions. Steps that triggered this most recently:

sudo -s
cd /tmp
dd if=/dev/zero of=test.ext4 bs=1 count=1 seek=1G
mkfs.ext4 -F test.ext4
mkdir -p /mnt/test
mount -o loop test.ext4 /mnt/test
echo $(seq 65536) | (cd /mnt/test; xargs touch)
time umount /mnt/test

I'm seeing upwards of 5 minutes for the umount to finish.

Phillip Susi (psusi) wrote :

It seems like it only happens when there are plenty of dirty buffers that need flushed, then it hangs waiting for the sync to complete, even though that is done after maybe 30 seconds. If you wait a while for the system to settle, or sync before umount, then it is fine. It also may be related to the journal. When I disable the journal it does not seem to hang.

For that matter, there don't seem to be a bunch of dirty buffers left around when I don't use the journal. Each time I make a clean fs, and restore a dump to it, then unmount it. With the journal, the umount ( or sync if I do that first ) flushes a bunch of data to the disk, but without the journal it does not.

@Kees, Can you please do the following:

If you could attach the output of the previous command then we could check if there is some lock contention occurring.

You could then disable lock_stat as follows:

Using blktrace, it looks like we're doing a whole ton of journal writes after the umount.

Here's the blktrace summary of the reproducer:

And here's the blktrace of the reproducer adding a "sync" before the "time umount /mnt/test":

Total (loop1):
 Reads Queued: 2, 8KiB Writes Queued: 9438, 37752KiB

 IO unplugs: 55 Timer unplugs: 0

Analyzing the blktrace logs more carefully, it looks like the umount path is doing a synchronous inode sync for each inode, which means that we're executing a journal transaction and a barrier between every single inode update. Doh!

I haven't analyzed the kernel code yet (probably won't have time tonight), but that does seem to be what's going on. Hopefully the kernel fix should be simple....

The other place you'll want to drop a sync call is in whatever path gets used when someone unmounts a file system in Nautilus (or any other desktop file manager) by clicking on the "eject" icon. This is the one that is going to be more visible to users, since a common usage scenario is someone who drags a whole bunch of files to a USB disk or flash disk, and then clicks on the eject button --- and we don't want another repeat of the infamous "USB writes are slow: random performance bug" Launchpad debacle that goes on and on for years..... :-)

Thanks for turning this up, I'll try to get the root cause fixed and you guys can decide if you have time to backport a kernel fix to the Lucid kernel...

Surbhi Palande (csurbhi) wrote :

Kees Cook, I debugged this problem and found out that this is happening because of waiting on ext4 journals. I can see currently there is a ext4 thread going on for doing journal commit in two phases:

Phase 1) wake up the journal commit threads
(Do some other work)
Phase 2) wait for the commit to finish.

Once that is done we should have a solution. I will follow-up this thread and pick the solution from there.

I did not read Teds comments above earlier :( !

Here is what i found out too:

1) barrier is called for every inode - but this happens for ext3 code too and ext3 unmount is not taking as much time.
2) journal transaction is also calling (one more) barrier for every inode.
2) putting timing information shows that sync does not wait as long on the barrier as unmount does - I am currently looking at why this is happening. After a sync is called when you call an unmount, a barrier is called on the same inodes for which sync already called a barrier.
Shall add more findings soon!

This sounds more like a temporary workaround than a fix of the real bug.
 Is that the case and why? Just can't find the real problem, or it will
take too long to fix?

I recommended doing a sync in userspace (i.e., in various shutdown
scripts and GNOME/KDE desktops) as a temporary workaround because I
didn't have time to poke at this before the Lucid release deadlines
(which is coming quite rapidly, yes). I guess the Ubuntu kernel team
decided it was easier drop a forced sync into the kernel. I haven't
examined the patch that they ultimately chose, but presumably it's low
risk to be inserted less than two weeks before the final release date
of Lucid if it was coded correctly. Me, I'd probably would have stuck
the sync in userspace, but I'm super paranoid this close to a
"enterprise-quality" release date, which is what the Lucid LTS release
purports to be.

As far as "trying to find the real problem", if Ubuntu was paying my
salary I'd give it more time to find the root cause of this bug, but
this is a low priority bug given other things on my plate. Red Hat
employs several very high powered file system developers, so they fix
a lot more of their own distro-specific bugs. Interestingly, this is
something that hasn't shown up as a complaint on Fedora systems. I'm
not sure why; the test case Kees provided shows that this is
definitely an upstream problem, but apparently something about their
choice of desktop components or how they are configured or something
about their init/hal scripts means that it's not showing up for their
users in practice for some reason.

My problem is I'm incredibly and busy at the moment, and I've already
done Ubuntu a huge favor by spending ten minutes to do a quickie
investigation. Ubuntu needs to learn that it can't rely on upstream
developers to jump through flaming hoops on short notice before a LTS
release deadline as a cost-saving mechanism to avoid hiring their own
senior kernel engineers. So hiring Surbhi is definitely a step in the
right direction. (One step on a journey of ten thousand, but a step
in the right direction nonetheless. :-)

Surbhi will eventually have the experience of folks like Eric Sandeen
and Josef Bacik, or Jan Kara at SuSE, and eventually hopefully she'll
be able to fix bugs like this quickly. Someone who is an ext4 expert
probably could localize this down in less than a day, especially given
my "ten minute investigation" to point them in the right direction.
The fact that "sync" on the command line causes the right thing to
happen, and "umount" with dirty inodes extant, doesn't, is a pretty
strong hint of where to look, and no, the root cause is probably not
the jbd2 layer as Surbhi has suggested.

      - Ted

P.S. Next thing for Ubuntu to learn --- how to pay their engineers
well enough, and how to give them enough time to work on upstream
issues, that once they gain that experience on Ubuntu's dime and
become well known in the open source community, they don't ...


Description of problem: umount on ext4 has seriously regressed, stalling for over a minute (or more):

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.33

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a Fedora 13, accepted defaults.
2. Run the following as root:

cd /tmp
dd if=/dev/zero of=test.ext4 bs=1 count=1 seek=1G
mkfs.ext4 -F test.ext4
mkdir -p /mnt/test
mount -o loop test.ext4 /mnt/test
echo $(seq 65536) | (cd /mnt/test; xargs touch)
time umount /mnt/test

Actual results: over a minute to perform umount.

Expected results: a few seconds.

The sync()-in-kernel work-around only seems to help on an otherwise idle system. I've opened an upstream and Fedora bug now, since I've been able trivially reproduce it both on current Fedora and the latest stable upstream kernel.

Looks barrier related, if you change the mount -o loop to mount -o loop,nobarrier, it's speedy.

commit 68db1961bbf4e16c220ccec4a780e966bc1fece3
Author: Nikanth Karthikesan <email address hidden>
Date: Tue Mar 24 12:29:54 2009 +0100

    loop: support barrier writes

    Honour barrier requests in the loop back block device driver.
    In case of barrier bios, flush the backing file once before processing the
    barrier and once after to guarantee ordering. In case of filesystems that
    does not support fsync, barrier bios would be failed with -EOPNOTSUPP.

    Signed-off-by: Nikanth Karthikesan <email address hidden>
    Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <email address hidden>

So you're fsyncing the loop file 2x for each barrier, and those fsyncs in turn cause cache flushes on your underlying device; once upon a time lvm didn't do anything there, but now it does ... I think you're just getting bitten by the new and improved barrier support at every level.


Since this really seems to be an upstream-relevant bug motivated by an ubuntu bug that ubuntu seemed unable to solve, I'm going to close this as UPSTREAM and worry about it there, rather than working the ubuntu bug through the fedora bugzilla.

This has caused a regression for us; some of our scripts mount a tmpfs and
then umount it. Since that now syncs every filesystem, it can take much
longer than it should.

What is the status of a real fix for this bug? Now that the upstream bug has been
closed (?), will the workaround be going away any time soon.

Well, your kernel certainly avoided the slowness I was experiencing in unmounting bindmounts, though in fairness merely reverting the SAUCE would most likely have been all I needed.

Unfortunately your kernel somehow made compiz refuse to start, which is pretty weird.

SRU Justification

Impact: The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar in scope to the Ubuntu SRU process, e.g., each patch has to demonstrably fix a bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream by originating either directly from Linus' tree or in a minimally backported form of that patch.

The upstream stable patch set is now available and contains fixes for this problem. It should be included in the Ubuntu kernel as well.

between 15 seconds and 25 seconds per filesystem. This happens even with a 'sync' run
immediately before the unmount.

(This happens on both 2.6.32-24-generic-pae i686 and 2.6.32-24-server x86_64. One
unpleasant consequence is that shutting down a machine takes a very long time, as we
have more than 200 NFS mounts and the shutdown scripts do the unmounts serially.)

The proposed kernel solves the problem on at least x86_64; unmounting a NFS
filesystem is almost instant (time says 0.16 seconds real) and the machine shuts
down or reboots immediately when requested.
