      Description

      Hello,

      Today our users started to report intermittent file access issues on Oak. I noticed the following messages on one client (2.10.4):

      Jul 05 14:32:21 sh-ln01.stanford.edu kernel: LustreError: 155141:0:(xattr.c:377:ll_xattr_list()) server bug: replied size 236 > 132

      These errors messages are the only Lustre Error I can see on this impacted client, however they are not very helpful as I'm not even sure it happened on Oak or another Lustre filesystem...

      The impacted directories are using ACLs but only a very few, less than 10. We have other directories with >32 ACLs and haven't seen this issue.

      The issue doesn't seem to be easily reproducible neither. I'm still investigating.

      If you have any ideas on how to troubleshoot this, please let me know.

      Thanks!
      Stephane
