The message: "kernel: o2net: connection to node ... has been idle for xx seconds, shutting it down" can be misleading. (Doc ID 756879.1)

Last updated on APRIL 22, 2020

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version 1.2.5-1 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64
Linux Itanium
Linux x86
Linux Kernel - Version: 1.2.5 to 1.2.9

Purpose

This Ocfs2 message in the /var/log/messages file can be misleading when it says "shutting it down" :
"kernel: o2net: connection to node <host-C> (num x) at <ip>:7777 has been idle for xx seconds, shutting it down"
The assumption is when this o2net message is seen in /var/log/messages file that some ocfs2 command or signal is sent from the live nodes to evict/shutdown host-C.
