DESCRIPTION

hroller is a cluster maintenance reboot scheduler. It can calculate which set of nodes can be rebooted at the same time while avoiding having both primary and secondary nodes being rebooted at the same time.

For backends that support identifying the master node (currently RAPI and LUXI), the master node is scheduled as the last node in the last reboot group. Apart from this restriction, larger reboot groups are put first.

ALGORITHM FOR CALCULATING OFFLINE REBOOT GROUPS

hroller will view the nodes as vertices of an undirected graph, with two kind of edges. Firstly, there are edges from the primary to the secondary node of every instance. Secondly, two nodes are connected by an edge if they are the primary nodes of two instances that have the same secondary node. It will then color the graph using a few different heuristics, and return the minimum-size color set found. Node with the same color can then simultaneously migrate all instance off to their respective secondary nodes, and it is safe to reboot them simultaneously.

OPTIONS

For a description of the standard options check htools(1) and hbal(1).

--force

Do not fail, even if the master node cannot be determined.

--node-tags tag,...

Restrict to nodes having at least one of the given tags.

--full-evacuation

Also plan moving secondaries out of the nodes to be rebooted. For each instance the move is at most a migrate (if it was primary on that node) followed by a replace secondary.

--skip-non-redundant

Restrict to nodes not hosting any non-redundant instance.

--offline-maintenance

Pretend that all instances are shutdown before the reboots are carried out. I.e., only edges from the primary to the secondary node of an instance are considered.

--ignore-non-redundant

Pretend that the non-redundant instances do not exist, and only take instances with primary and secondary node into account.

--one-step-only

Restrict to the first reboot group. Output the group one node per line.

--print-moves

After each group list for each affected instance a node where it can be evacuated to. The moves are computed under the assumption that after each reboot group, all instances are moved back to their initial position.

BUGS

If instances are online the tool should refuse to do offline rolling maintenances, unless explicitly requested.

End-to-end shelltests should be provided.

EXAMPLES

Online Rolling reboots, using tags

Selecting by tags and getting output for one step only can be used for planing the next maintenance step. :

$ hroller --node-tags needsreboot --one-step-only -L
'First Reboot Group'
 node1.example.com
 node3.example.com

Typically these nodes would be drained and migrated. :

$ GROUP=`hroller --node-tags needsreboot --one-step-only --no-headers -L`
$ for node in $GROUP; do gnt-node modify -D yes $node; done
$ for node in $GROUP; do gnt-node migrate -f --submit $node; done

After maintenance, the tags would be removed and the nodes undrained.

Offline Rolling node reboot output

If all instances are shut down, usually larger node groups can be found. :

$ hroller --offline-maintenance -L
'Node Reboot Groups'
node1.example.com,node3.example.com,node5.example.com
node8.example.com,node6.example.com,node2.example.com
node7.example.com,node4.example.com

Rolling reboots with non-redundant instances

By default, hroller plans capacity to move the non-redundant instances out of the nodes to be rebooted. If requested, appropriate locations for the non-redundant instances can be shown. The assumption is that instances are moved back to their original node after each reboot; these back moves are not part of the output. :

$ hroller --print-moves -L
'Node Reboot Groups'
node-01-002,node-01-003
  inst-20 node-01-001
  inst-21 node-01-000
  inst-30 node-01-005
  inst-31 node-01-004
node-01-004,node-01-005
  inst-40 node-01-001
  inst-41 node-01-000
  inst-50 node-01-003
  inst-51 node-01-002
node-01-001,node-01-000
  inst-00 node-01-002
  inst-01 node-01-003
  inst-10 node-01-005
  inst-11 node-01-004
