Resource became OFFLINE unexpectedly on its own

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi Experts,

I would like to know if there is any other way to check what is causing some resources to go down unexpectedly?

Hi Chuck,

Pls paste VCS configure file /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/main.cf to check what the Resource(Server1) is.

And from the logs above, it's the resource offline out of VCS which is typically caused by the resource itself.

what is the type-definition and the entrypoint implmentations for agent Mediator?

look at the agent's log file

Thanks and Warm Regards,

Hi arangari, 

im sorry im not familiar with "entrypoint" how can i get the agent's log file?

stinsong's picture

From the main.cf could tell the resource "server1" is a blank defined resource with resource type Mediator. 

But chuck, the resource type Mediator is not exist from VCS. You cannot define a resource that does not exist from any *Types.cf files.

So it's not VCS problem. Either there should no use of such resource Mediator or missing type defination.

mikebounds's picture

I don't understand how you got resource Server1 to go online in the first place:

As stinsong says, Mediator is not a standard resource type that is found in the types files you have included in your main.cf, but I can only think you added it to the types.cf file as if Mediator type didn't exist, then "hares -add" command would have failed, or if you edited the main.cf, then VCS would not have started - so assuming you did added a Mediator type the other problems are:

  1. You have mulitple Mediator resources (Server1, Server2, Server3, Server4) that all have the same attributes (i.e they all have no attributes), so they cannot be distinuished from each other, so if VCS detects Mediator application is down, how does it know which of the 4 it is - it can't know.
     
  2. You can't just add Mediator to types file - it needs to have corresponding agent files in /opt/VRTSvcs/bin or /opt/VRTSagents/ha/bin

chuckchang23's picture

Hi Mikebounds and Stingson,

Thank you both for the inputs :)

Anyway, I got this from the type.cf

type Mediator (

        static str LogLevel
        static int OnlineRetryLimit = 1
        static int OnlineTimeout = 60
        static int RestartLimit = 1
        static str ArgList[] = { Dummy }
        str Dummy
)
 
and it seems to have agents 
 
EMMDPD07:/# cd /opt/VRTSvcs/bin
EMMDPD07:/opt/VRTSvcs/bin# ls Mediator/
MediatorAgent  clean          monitor        offline        online
 
 
but still, is there a way to check what caused the sudden offline?

 @Chuckchang23

1. Is the Mediator agent developed as per the instructions from 'Agent Developer Guide' ? Please refer to this guide from SORT.

2. You need to look at the logic in 'monitor' file  under /opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Mediator to determine why the resource could be detected as offline. 

3. See if there have been events related to the 'server5' instance of the resource which lead the 'monitor' determining the resource as offline.

I would strongly urge to refer to 'VCS Administrator guide' too.

VCS reports the resource as OFFLINE when the monitor entry point of the agent exits with a value 100. What could help you understand in this case, is go through the monitor program "/opt/VRTSvcs/bin/Mediator/monitor" , see when it is exiting the with the code 100. That would help you determine what could be the situation when VCS reported the resource as OFFLINE.

Hi chuck,

Seems you have customized types.cf for the resource Mediator.

But like mike said, there are 4 resources of Mediator without any attributes. You should use proxy resource base on same resource for different service group.

Anyway you can check on the agent log /var/VRTSvcs/log/Mediator_A.log if there is.

mikebounds's picture

Can you explain more about the Mediator application.

As it stands, you have not described any "instance" information in your resource which implies there is only one Mediator application that all 4 service group requires as oppose to each service group requiring its own instance of the Mediator.  You have defined "offline" for Mediator and therefore when you offline one service group it will offline the Mediator application so the other 3 service groups will see the Mediator application go offline and hence report "resource became OFFLINE unexpectedly, on its own".

You only have an IP in the Mediator service groups, so I don't know if this means config is unfinished and there will be other resources or it is only IP - if it is only IP, then this perhaps suggests that you have 4 instances of Mediator, in which case you need an attribute to distinguish the Mediators so VCS knows which Mediator to start, stop and monitor for each group.

So we need to know if you have one Mediator  or 4 and if there is only one, could it be running on both nodes at the same time and have  Mediator1, Mediator2, Mediator3 & Mediator4 split between the nodes or should all 4 Mediators always be on the same server.
