      Description

      Currently, Lazy size on MDT (LSOM) creates and stores file attributes on the MDS for Data on MDT files, just like all other files, and we need to llsom_sync to get the file attributes for DoM files to be correct. The file metadata for DoM files is on the MDS already and is valid. Thus, we shouldn’t have to sync to get the LSOM data to match the DoM file metadata.

      From the example below, we can see that the number of blocks in the LSOM data for the DoM file mdt_file_2 is only updated after we run llsom_sync

      # lfs setstripe -E 4M -L mdt /lustre/scratch/mdt_file_2
      # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/lustre/scratch/mdt_file_2 bs=25k count=2

      Also, for DoM files, shouldn’t the flag = 1; SOM_FL_STRICT = 0x0001 - Known strictly correct, FLR or DoM file (SoM guaranteed). In the case above, the flag never changes from 4, SOM_FL_LAZY = 0x0004 - Approximate, may never have been strictly correct, need to sync SOM data to achieve eventual consistency.
