      Description

      We have an OSS where two OST threads are using significant CPU time, and I suspect not making real progress:

      29703 root      20   0     0    0    0 R 40.7  0.0 309:55.91 ll_ost_io_375
      14028 root      20   0     0    0    0 R 39.7  0.0 311:25.93 ll_ost_io_75
      

      When I can catch them between active cycles on the CPU, they show the following backtraces from "crash":

      So it appears that they are failing to make progress in the shrinker code.

      The immediate symptom that users see is a client that is unable to reconnect to an OST on this OSS:

      Lustre: 15630:0:(ldlm_lib.c:852:target_handle_connect()) lsd-OST01bb: refuse reconnection from 59381921-e835-2c32-ab83-d3f9e3fbad7f@192.168.120.181@o2ib3 to 0xffff88040d93ec00/1
      

      (As an aside, we really need to improve these console messages. Brian had a set of patches that greatly improved them attached to bugzilla bug 16909 and that LLNL carried for quite a while. But Sun/Oracle never landed them. I'll work on porting them forward and get them into gerrit when I have a chance).

      That message means that one RPC is outstanding for that export, and the client will not be allowed to reconnect until it is removed. We can see the refused connections for hours, and I suspect that it will never fix itself without intervention. My assumption is that one of the runaway ll_ost_io threads is to blame for the outstanding RPC.

      Memory is not really too tight on the node at this time.
