gnt-debug(8) Ganeti | Version 3.0.0

Name

gnt-debug - Debug commands

Synopsis

gnt-debug {command} [arguments...]

DESCRIPTION

The gnt-debug is used for debugging the Ganeti system.

COMMANDS

IALLOCATOR

iallocator [--debug] [--dir direction] {--algorithm allocator } [--mode mode] [--mem memory] [--disks diskS] [--disk-template template] [--nics nics] [--os-type OS] [--vcpus vcpus] [--tags tags] {instance-name}

Executes a test run of the iallocator framework.

The command will build input for a given iallocator script (named with the --algorithm option), and either show this input data (if direction is in) or run the iallocator script and show its output (if direction is out).

If the mode is allocate, then an instance definition is built from the other arguments and sent to the script, otherwise (mode is relocate) an existing instance name must be passed as the first argument.

This build of Ganeti will look for iallocator scripts in the following directories: /usr/local/lib/ganeti/iallocators; for more details about this framework, see the HTML or PDF documentation.

DELAY

delay [--debug] [--no-master] [--interruptible] [-n node-name...] {duration}

Run a test opcode (a sleep) on the master and on selected nodes (via an RPC call). This serves no other purpose but to execute a test operation.

The -n option can be given multiple times to select the nodes for the RPC call. By default, the delay will also be executed on the master, unless the --no-master option is passed.

The --interruptible option allows a running delay opcode to be interrupted by communicating with a special domain socket. If any data is sent to the socket, the delay opcode terminates. If this option is used, no RPCs are performed, but locks are still acquired.

The delay argument will be interpreted as a floating point number.

SUBMIT-JOB

submit-job [--verbose] [--timing-stats] [--job-repeat n] [--op-repeat n] [--each] {opcodes_file...}

This command builds a list of opcodes from files in JSON format and submits a job per file to the master daemon. It can be used to test options that are not available via command line.

The verbose option will additionally display the corresponding job IDs and the progress in waiting for the jobs; the timing-stats option will show some overall statistics including the number of total opcodes, jobs submitted and time spent in each stage (submit, exec, total).

The job-repeat and op-repeat options allow to submit multiple copies of the passed arguments; job-repeat will cause N copies of each job (input file) to be submitted (equivalent to passing the arguments N times) while op-repeat will cause N copies of each of the opcodes in the file to be executed (equivalent to each file containing N copies of the opcodes).

The each option allow to submit each job separately (using N SubmitJob LUXI requests instead of one SubmitManyJobs request).

TEST-JOBQUEUE

test-jobqueue

Executes a few tests on the job queue. This command might generate failed jobs deliberately.

TEST_OSPARAMS

test-osparams {--os-parameters-secret param=*value*... }

Tests secret os parameter transmission.

LOCKS

locks [--no-headers] [--separator=*separator*] [-v]
[-o [+]field,...] [--interval=*seconds*]

Shows a list of locks in the master daemon.

The --no-headers option will skip the initial header line. The --separator option takes an argument which denotes what will be used between the output fields. Both these options are to help scripting.

The -v option activates verbose mode, which changes the display of special field states (see ganeti(7)).

The -o option takes a comma-separated list of output fields. The available fields and their meaning are:

mode

Mode in which the lock is currently acquired (exclusive or shared)

name

Lock name

owner

Current lock owner(s)

pending

Threads waiting for the lock

If the value of the option starts with the character +, the new fields will be added to the default list. This allows one to quickly see the default list plus a few other fields, instead of retyping the entire list of fields.

Use --interval to repeat the listing. A delay specified by the option value in seconds is inserted.

METAD

metad echo text

Tests the WConf daemon by invoking its echo function.

A given text is sent to Metad through RPC, echoed back by Metad and printed to the console.

WCONFD

wconfd echo text

Tests the WConf daemon by invoking its echo function.

A given text is sent to WConfd through RPC, echoed back by WConfd and printed to the console.

wconfd cleanuplocks

A request to clean up all stale locks is sent to WConfd.

wconfd listlocks job-id

A request to list the locks owned by the given job id is sent to WConfd and the answer is displayed.

wconfd listalllocks

A request to list all locks in use, directly or indirectly, is sent to WConfd and the answer is displayed.

wconfd listalllocks

A request to list all locks in use, directly or indirectly, together with their respective direct owners is sent to WConfd and the answer is displayed.

wconfd flushconfig

A request to ensure that the configuration is fully distributed to the master candidates.

REPORTING BUGS

Report bugs to the project's issue tracker or contact the developers using the Ganeti mailing list.
