#1: md0_raid5 process consuming 100% CPU on disk failure

Posted on 2011-06-16 21:01:17 by Shivani Bhope

Hello all,

I have been trying to test md raid 5 array faults. I set up a three-disk
RAID 5, and started some I/O. Then I entered the command:

mdadm /dev/md0 --fail /dev/sdc

As soon as the disk is failed, the md0_raid5 process is seen to be taking
100% CPU. This happens about 2 out of 3 times the test was run.

The details:

1. Output for mdadm -D /dev/md0 before the test:
/dev/md0:

2. Output for mdadm -D after the test:

Note the device is not marked as removed and spare but as
spare rebuilding.

The system has to be manually power-cycled to recover.

This system is running RHEL 6.1, kernel version
2.6.32-131.0.15.el6.x86_64 & mdadm-3.2.1-1.el6.x86_64
The same test was also run on Fedora-15, kernel version
2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64 & mdadm-3.1.5-2.fc15.x86_64

The output for sysrq-t showing md0_raid5 after the hang is:

Jun 15 18:20:39 kernel: md0_raid5 R running task 0 1896 2 0x00000080

I tried to increase the stripe_cache_size to 512 and then to 16384.
The problem is still seen.

What could be the reason for the problem?

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Shivani
