vxdclid consuming 100% of CPU

Created: 24 Feb 2014 | 3 comments

Hi Guys,

We have VXVM on our redhat 5.8, recently vxdclid starts consuming 100% of the servers CPU.

Is it safe to restart vxdclid without any impact on the server/volumes/disks?

Hello,

What is the VxVM version you are using ? Do you use Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) ?

I found multiple technotes describing the same problem on other operating systems for e.g

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH209237

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH200996

If you are not using VOM, I don't see a major downside of restarting the process

Another technote helpful for troubleshooting

Hello Thanks for the reply,

Our server is using version 6

We have previously check those technotes

This file /etc/default/sf_resolv.conf does not exist on the server and all the stats in /etc/vx/dcli/sfm/conf/dcli_conf.ini are enabled.

We have not yet done http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=HOWTO35878 since we are not sure if its safe to restart vxdclid

Hello,

vxdclid is not required for your volumes/filesystems or diskgroup operations. You can restart vxdclid without impacting diskgroup or volumes or filesystems.

only thing that may get impacted is VOM related stuff if you are using it.
