lost1nfoundhey guys, i have a kernel crash and ifquery crash happening on ubuntu15.10 w/ 4.2.0-22. i need to gather coredumps for a proper bug report.. ive set up kdump per ubuntu instructions (https://goo.gl/3vXG4g), and i cant get kdump to write a vmcore no matter what i try. ive tried adjusting crashkernel=memory to everything between 128M and 1G, ive tried configing kdump to dump over ssh but i never s00:06
lost1nfoundee it connect and no dump, very stuck :)00:06
lost1nfoundany ideas what to check/where to look to get my vmcore dumps working?00:07
lost1nfoundalso this is on EC2, so i have no way to get a full read/write console. so i cant just make kdump/kexec drop me into a shell and do it manually or anything00:08
lost1nfoundcrash seems to be happening inside the network driver also which seems to be a further debugging complication00:08
lost1nfoundwanting to submit a useful bug report but i need a vmcore for that00:09
lost1nfoundand so ive read the reports that there are problems if /boot is a different partition, but my entire dirstructure is on my root volume, no other disks or partitions attached. only potential complication might be that this is an EBS disk on ec2? but even then id expect kdump over ssh to work and it doesnt00:39

hallynsforshee: bug 1530617 - this is a funky one.  i suspect i'll need to use taskstats or systemtap to track it down.  if you have any better ideas for how to debug pls shout04:40

lost1nfoundanyone know anything about getting kdump to work when its not dumping?05:30
hallynmeh, systemtap is failing to build modules both in wily and xenial07:47
sforsheehallyn: no better ideas off the top of my head, I played with it a while yesterday but didn't learn much. If I think of something I'll let you know.13:23
sforsheehallyn: huh, the same thing happened just now when I ran losetup in the host. Maybe it has something to do with uevents?13:25
sforsheehallyn: and again when I mounted that lop device in the host13:26
rtgsforshee, is bug #1528688 on your to-do list ?13:43

sforsheertg: I've been watching it, the last comment said to hold off on the patches but looks like he just addded a new one13:46
sforsheeso I'll get that done today13:46
rtgah, I guess I missed that13:47
rtgapw, been looking at bug #1530540 - do you remember if we had a good reason for why we put the thermald Depends/Recommends in the meta package instead of the actual package ?14:16

apwrtg, because we use those packages for linux-virtual for which thermald and crda etc are not sensible14:20
rtgapw, makes sense. I knew there was a reason we did it that way.14:21
apwthe question is why they care to want it there14:22
rtgapw, nit picking ?14:22
rtganyways, I'll respond14:23

sforsheehallyn: I'm definitely seeing a direct correlation between bug 1530617 and uevents, any command I run in the host that causes uevents to be generatted also causes processes in the container to be killed14:55

apwrtg, thanks it doesn't seem right to change it for sure16:39
hallynsforshee: oh, well systemtap (when rebuilt from upstream) did give me a bunch of udevs being killed,17:04
hallynmaybe udev gets killed and then upstart is upset so it goes on a rampage17:04
hallynmaybe a non-ubuntu-cloud container doesn't have the problem bc it doesnt 'have udev17:04
hallynwell that's not it17:06
sforsheehallyn: systemd has udev too though and it doesn't happen with systemd17:21
sforsheeis there some way that lxcfs and upstart might interact in response to uevents that causes it?17:22
hallynsforshee: yes, my guess is it has to do with the way upstart ptraces it's daemons17:37
hallynbut that's just a wild guess based on the fact that it only happens with upstart17:37
hallynmight be possible to write a test program to run in a userns to verify17:37
sforsheehallyn: what's the relationship with lxcfs then? Didn't you say that stopping lxcfs prevents it?17:38
hallynoh i don't think it *prevents* the problem itself.17:39
hallynit's just that with lxcfs running 'lxc-start -n x1; lx-attach -n x1' always gets killed at lxc-attach after a sec or 217:39
hallynpresumably d uring the lxcfs bind mounts which dreate uevents as you found17:40
sforsheegot it, I misunderstood your comment on the bug17:41

dobeyhi. anyone have ideas on how to figure out why the lowlatency kernel hangs, but only when intel video is driving the monitor at 30Hz, and not at 60Hz?20:57
