Nova and its use of Olso Incubator Guru Meditation Reports

This blogs describes a error reporting / troubleshooting feature added to Nova a while back which people are probably not generally aware of.

One of the early things I worked on in the Nova libvirt driver was integration of support for the libvirt event notification system. This allowed Nova to get notified when instances are shutdown by the guest OS administrator, instead of having to wait for the background power state sync task to run. Supporting libvirt events was a theoretically simple concept, but in practice there was a nasty surprise. The key issue was that we needed to have a native thread running the libvirt event loop, while the rest of Nova uses green threads. The code kept getting bizarre deadlocks, which were eventually traced to use of the python logging APIs in the native thread. Since eventlet had monkeypatched the thread mutex primitives, the logging APIs couldn’t be safely called from the native thread as they’d try to obtain a green mutex from a native thread context.

Eventlet has a concept of a backdoor port, which lets you connect to the python process using telnet and get an interactive python prompt. After turning this on, I got a stack trace of all green and native threads and eventually figured out the problem, which was great. Sadly the eventlet backdoor is not something anyone sane would ever enable out of the box on production systems – you don’t really want to allow remote command execution to anyone who can connect to a TCP port :-) Another debugging option is to use Python’s native debugger, but this is again something you have to enable ahead of time and won’t be something admins enable out of the box on production systems. It is possible to connect to a running python process with GDB and get a crude stack trace, but that’s not great either as it requires python debuginfo libraries installed. It would be possible to build an administrative debugging API for Nova using the REST API, but that only works if the REST API & message bus are working – not something that’s going to be much use when Nova itself has deadlocked the entire python interpretor

After this debugging experience I decided to propose something that I’ve had on previous complex systems, a facility that allows an admin to trigger a live error report. Crucially this facility must not require any kind of deployment setup tasks and thus be guaranteed available at all times, especially on production systems where debugging options are limited by the need to maintain service to users. I called the proposal the “Guru Meditation Report” in reference to old Amiga crash reports. I did a quick proof of concept to test the idea, but Solly Ross turned the idea into a complete feature for OpenStack, adding it to the Oslo Incubator in the openstack.common.reports namespace and integrating with Nova. This shipped with the Icehouse release of Nova.

Service integration & usage

Integration into projects is quite straightforward, the openstack-common.conf file needs to list the relevant modules to import from oslo-incubator

$ grep report openstack-common.conf
module=report
module=report.generators
module=report.models
module=report.views
module=report.views.json
module=report.views.text
module=report.views.xml

then each service process needs to initialize the error report system. This just requires a single import line and method call from the main method

$ cat nova/cmd/nova-compute
...snip...
from nova.openstack.common.report import guru_meditation_report as gmr
...snip...
def main():
    gmr.TextGuruMeditation.setup_autorun(version)

    ...run eventlet service or whatever...

The setup_autorun method installs a signal handler connected to SIGUSR1 which will dump an error report to stderr when triggered.

So from Icehouse onwards, if any Nova process is mis-behaving you can simply run something like

$ kill -USR1 `pgrep nova-compute`

to get a detailed error report of the process state sent to stderr. On RHEL-7 / Fedora systems this data should end up going into the systemd journal for that service. On other systems you may be lucky enough for the init service to have redirected stderr to a log file, or unlucky enough to have it sent to /dev/null. Did I mention the systemd journal is a really exactly feature when troubleshooting service problems :-)

Error report information

In the oslo-incubator code there are 5 standard sections defined for the error report

  • Config – dump of all configuration settings loaded by oslo.config – useful because the config settings loaded in memory don’t necessarily match what is currently stored in /etc/nova/nova.conf on disk – eg admin may have modified the config and forgotten to reload the services.
  • Package – information about the software package, as passed into the setup_autorun method previously. This lets you know the openstack release version number, the vendor who packaged it and any vendor specific version info such as the RPM release number. This is again key, because what’s installed on the host currently may not match the version that’s actually running. You can’t always trust the admins to give you correct info when reporting bugs, so having software report itself is more reliable.
  • Process – information about the running process including the process ID, parent process ID, user ID, group ID and scheduler state.
  • Green Threads – stack trace of every eventlet green thread currently in existence
  • Native Threads – stack trace of every native thread currently in existence

The report framework is modular, so it is possible to register new generator functions which add further data to the error report. This is useful if there is application specific data that is useful to include, that would not otherwise be suitable for inclusion in oslo-incubator directly. The data model is separated from the output formatting code, so it is possible to output the report in a number of different data formats. The reports which get sent to stderr are using a crude plain text format, but it is possible to have reports generated in XML, JSON, or another completely custom format.

Future improvements

Triggering from a UNIX signal and printing to stderr, is a very simple and reliable approach that we can guarantee will almost always work no matter what operational state the OpenStack deployment as a whole is in. It should not be considered the only possible approach though. I can see that it may be desirable to also wire this up to RPC messaging bus, so a cloud admin can remotely generate an error report for a service and get the response back over the message bus in an XML or JSON format. This wouldn’t replace the SIGUSR1 based stderr dumps, but rather augment them, as we want to retain the ability to trigger reports even if rabbitmq bus connection is dead/broken for some reason.

AFAIK, this error report system is only wired up into the Nova project at this time. It is desirable to bring this feature over to projects like Neutron, Cinder, Glance, Keystone too, so it can be a considered an openstack wide standard system for admins to collect data for troubleshooting. As explained above, this is no more difficult that adding the modules to openstack-common.conf and then adding a single method call to the service startup main method. Those projects might like to register extra error report sections to provide further data, but that’s by no means required for initial integration.

Having error reports triggered on demand by the admin is nice, but I think there is also value in having error reports triggered automatically in response to unexpected error conditions. For example if a RPC request to boot a new VM instance fails, it could be desirable to save a detailed error report, rather than just having an exception hit the logs with no context around it. In such a scenario you would extend the error report generator so that the report included the exception information & stack trace, and also include the headers and/or payload of the RPC request that failed. The error report would probably be written to a file instead of stderr, using JSON or XML. Tools could then be written to analyse error reports and identify commonly recurring problems.

Even with the current level of features for the error report system, it has proved its worth in facilitating the debugging of a number of problems in Nova, where things like the eventlet backdoor or python debugger were impractical to use. I look forward to its continued development and broader usage across openstack.

Example report

What follows below is an example error report from the nova-compute service running in one of my development hosts. Notice that oslo.conf configuration parameters that were declared with the ‘secret’ flag have their value masked. This is primarily aiming to prevent passwords making their way into the error report, since the expectation is the users may attach these reports to public bugs.

You may also try faulthandler which works even if Python is stuck ;-) Since it works as lower level, it cannot provide as much information as your code. you can use faulthandler with a timeout (watchdog) or a signal, and so it majes sense to use it on production.

This is really interesting! I didn’t know about such a feature and I think it could be very useful.

However, when I try it on my Juno testbed (based on Ubuntu 14.04), it doesn’t work… I’ve created the /etc/nova/openstack-common.conf and restarted nova-compute, run kill -USR1 but nothing is printed on standard error (nor written to logfile)

Is the openstack-common.conf to be placed in /etc/nova or somwhere else? Is there an option ot set in nova.conf to enable reporting?

Daniel Berrange said at 3:56 pm on February 25th, 2015:

The note about openstack-common.conf is refering to what developers have todo to enable it in other openstack projects. It is not something you do as an admin in production. It is unconditionally enabled in Nova in production and just gets sent to stderr, assuming your initsystem has not redirected stderr to /dev/null.

When running under mod_wsgi, it doesn’t work. For example, I start ceilometer-api in mod_wsgi, which doesn’t start its own standalone process but existing a mod_wsgi daemon. In this case, runing kill -USR1 will kill the subprocess when we use the daemon model of mod_wsgi.

What can we do to deal with the case? thanks.

Daniel Berrange said at 12:21 pm on May 20th, 2015:

Reading from https://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/ConfigurationDirectives#WSGIRestrictSignal it seems mod_wsgi needs USR1 for its own purposes, so the obvious thing would be to make openstack use a different signal, eg USR2, or indeed any one of the realtime signals – IIRC there are about 32 realtime signals available for application use. eg kill -RTMIN+5 $PID

Hi, I have done some tests about it. It still doesn’t work. Because the Apache can start a main process for an application, when we send a request to application, the application can start a subprocess in the WSGIDaemonProcess mode. we can not add the guru-meditation-reports the main process, but if adding the guru-meditation-reports to the application, when we send a request. It will report an error:
ValueError: signal only works in main thread

1. move the guru-meditation-reports into ceilometer.
2. I make the config based on http://docs.openstack.org/developer/ceilometer/install/mod_wsgi.html
the app.wsgi is the following code:

from ceilometer import service
from ceilometer.api import app
from ceilometer.openstack.common.report import guru_meditation_report as gmr
from ceilometer import version

# Initialize the oslo configuration library and logging
service.prepare_service([])
application = app.load_app()
log_dir=”/var/log/apache2/ceilometer_error.log”
gmr.TextGuruMeditation.setup_autorun(version, service_name=None, log_dir=log_dir, signum=None)

3. Set WSGIRestrictSignal Off in the /etc/apache2/mods-available/wsgi.conf
4. service apache2 restart
root@tralon-2:/var/www/ceilometer# ps -ef | grep wsgi:ceilometer
root@tralon-2:/var/www/ceilometer# ps -ef | grep wsgi:ceilometer
stack 27605 27602 0 11:41 ? 00:00:00 (wsgi:ceilometer- -k start
stack 27606 27602 0 11:41 ? 00:00:00 (wsgi:ceilometer- -k start
root 29142 15894 0 11:50 pts/1 00:00:00 grep –color=auto wsgi:ceilometer
5. send a command
curl -g -i -X ‘GET’ ‘http://192.168.86.90:8777/v2/meters’ -H ‘User-Agent: ceilometerclient.openstack.common.apiclient’ -H ‘X-Auth-Token: 699d63abb60346d89fa8bd02c74804ac’
return a 500 error

the log is like this:
2015-05-21 11:51:37.686045 mod_wsgi (pid=27606): Exception occurred processing WSGI script ‘/var/www/ceilometer/app.wsgi’.
