Information in this document applies to any platform.
NOTE: This problem is Linux OS generic.
While this example will discuss the ODA, the symptoms are possible on most any Linux configuration.
The more servers and devices, the more potential for excessive overhead and performance impact due to this logging.
- A highly populated ODA Farm with several ODA HAs encountered multiple hosts rebooted at same time.
- The problem appeared to be isolated to ODAs using one subnet.
- In fact, most ODAs impacted only would see the problem on one of the two Nodes.
- The problem required higher than normal loads.
- However, other systems that appeared to have similar loads were not impacted.
- One unusual symptom:
Only one of the two nodes in the ODA cluster would see the reboot.
The second node was unaffected and the problem node was added back to the cluster without user intervention.
The problem only happened after an upgrade of their several ODAs to 220.127.116.11 and higher.
Initial assessment of several ODA hardware versions from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 almost all included non-default settings which appear to be introduced as part of the patching.
