NFSv4 file server problems

Hi,

Part of my job is supporting Linux users at a university, and we have recently migrated one of our file servers from Solaris to FreeBSD.

We've had some problems and hence I'm posting here.

HW:

CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v4 @ 3.20GHz (3200.07-MHz K8-class CPU)
real memory = 412304277504 (393204 MB)

The server is running zfs, samba & nfsv4.

FreeBSD 11.2.

/etc/rc.conf:
Code:
zfs_enable="YES"

# NFS
nfs_server_enable="YES"
nfs_server_flags="-u -t -n 4"    # Flags to nfsd (if enabled).
nfsv4_server_enable="YES"        # Enable support for NFSv4
nfsuserd_enable="YES"            # NFSv4 user/group name mapping daemon
nfsuserd_flags="-domain ourdomain.se -usermax 5000 20"
gssd_enable="YES"                # Run the gssd daemon (or NO).
gssd_flags=""

#Linux compat
linux_enable="YES"

#Autofs
autofs_enable="YES"
autounmountd_flags="-r 200 -t 200 -v"
automountd_flags="-v"

# Samba (in /usr/local)
samba_server_enable="YES"
winbindd_enable="YES"
nmbd_enable="NO"

# nscd
nscd_enable="YES"

#TSM
dsmcad_enable="YES"

# PF Firewall (from OpenBSD 4.5) see /etc/pf.conf
pf_enable="YES"

# inetd (needed for rquouta)
inetd_enable="YES"
/etc/nscd.conf:

Code:
#
# Default caching daemon configuration file
# $FreeBSD: releng/11.2/etc/nscd.conf 172742 2007-10-18 08:26:20Z bushman $
#

#
enable-cache passwd yes
enable-cache group yes
enable-cache hosts yes
enable-cache services yes
enable-cache protocols yes
enable-cache rpc yes
enable-cache networks yes

#
suggested-size passwd 19997
suggested-size group 19997
keep-hot-count passwd 163840
keep-hot-count group 163840
/etc/nsswitch.conf:

Code:
#
# nsswitch.conf(5) - name service switch configuration file
# $FreeBSD: releng/11.2/etc/nsswitch.conf 301711 2016-06-09 01:28:44Z markj $
#
group: files
hosts: files dns
netgroup: compat
networks: files
passwd: cache files
shells: files
services: files
protocols: files
rpc: files
NOTE: We don't run the nfscbd daemon.

Code:
# wc -l /etc/group
   34371 /etc/group
# wc -l /etc/passwd
  124167 /etc/passwd
320 Linux clients, mostly Redhat Enterprise 7 but also approx. 100 RHEL 6.
Also an unknown number of windows samba clients.
Main applications on Linux: GNOME, Matlab, Firefox.
The server delivers NFSv4 + Samba homedirectories, group file directories and
various nfs shares with software.

Samba is mainly for group file directories, not homedirectories.

Mount flags on RHEL 7 clients:
Flags: rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,vers=4.1,rsize=131072,wsize=131072,namlen=255,hard,proto=tcp,port=0,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=krb5p,clientaddr=x.x.x.x,local_lock=none,addr=x.x.x.x

PROBLEMS:

NOTE: I'm not the admin for this server, just a curious second line support person,
so the description below is going to be a bit vague as I have not been involved
in much of the actual troubleshooting.

The server has been running for approx. six months. The server performed well
during the first months, probably because the weren't many active NFS clients.
Apart from a few isolated incidents samba has caused no problems.

The server runs in a school environment and the problems started to appear when many students at once started
to login to linux computers in classrooms. In the beginning it caused the server to crash & re-boot, it was not able
to start the nfs-service again without some persuasion. The load was not high on the server but nscd & gssd was using a lot
of cpu.

The situation improved when we:

-decreased the number of groups in /etc/group from approx. 155000 to 38000.
-only used "files" for the group entry in nsswitch.conf instead of "cache files"
-installed a "nanny" script that re-starts gssd when it stops working

Now the server is able to start the nfs service again after a crash, in fact hasn't crashed
so much lately, perhaps because students/teachers have given up on using the Linux clients
for labs...;-(


QUESTIONS:

I wonder if there is any configuration flags to nfsd, nfsuserd or nscd that could be used
or set differently?

How many NFSv4 workstation clients should a single server be able to handle?

Threads: how many threads should the nfs daemon use? I've seen conflicting opinions about this...
Currently we have it set to 4, when we used higher numbers like 50 the server would run well but
crash as soon as many nfs clients became active (= students login in to comps.)

Would it be better to use ldap instead of passwd/group files (and skip nscd)?

I would be grateful for any input!

Some additional info about our config:

/etc/sysctl.conf:

Code:
# $FreeBSD: releng/11.2/etc/sysctl.conf 112200 2003-03-13 18:43:50Z mux $
#
#  This file is read when going to multi-user and its contents piped thru
#  ``sysctl'' to adjust kernel values.  ``man 5 sysctl.conf'' for details.
#

# Uncomment this to prevent users from seeing information about processes that
# are being run under another UID.
#security.bsd.see_other_uids=0
net.inet.icmp.icmplim_output=0

vfs.nfsd.tcphighwater=50000
vfs.nfsd.tcpcachetimeo=1000
/boot/loader.conf:

Code:

O.K., if no one else starts wild-guessing what's going on on that machine , then I'll start :)
....
nfs_server_enable="YES"
nfs_server_flags="-u -t -n 4"
...
I wonder if there is any configuration flags to nfsd, nfsuserd or nscd that could be used
or set differently?
"set-differently-suggestion" ( normally only for NFS V3 ( not V4) ) :
Code:
rpcbind_enable="YES" or remove : nfs_server_flags="-u -t -n 4" (if only V4 is required)
I have a "suspicion" that RHEL is trying to access nfsv3 ... then you would also need to set mountd_enable = "YES".


Flags: .....vers=4.1,
perhaps
Code:
  vers=4
a look into your / etc /exports and crashdump(if available) could be interesting.. and an information about your zfs-environment...

... from Solaris to FreeBSD ...
For now, if I had such an unstable machine in a production environment, I would go backwards ;-)

mountd & rpcbind seems to be running even though they are not started from /etc/rc.conf:

Code:
root@sol:~ # grep rpcbind /etc/rc.conf
root@sol:~ # grep mountd  /etc/rc.conf
autounmountd_flags="-r 200 -t 200 -v"
automountd_flags="-v"

I will post crashdumps & /etc/exports info later.

Don't use the sharenfs feature of ZFS and /etc/exports. Use one or the other, not both. A lot of NFS exports are now doubled, that's going to cause issues.
Hmm, this was confusing to me. I think our exports files are OK: the first file is mostly nfsv3 exports to webservers and the second is nfsv4 exports, so nothing is really doubled is it??

We tried increasing the number of threads to 16, unfortunately the server crashed again today after 3-4 days...

On the problem I cannot give much help. Still did not succeed with nfsv4, being home-user.

to your posted files:

in
/etc/exports:
/ufs/groups/groups07
and in
/etc/zfs/exports:
/ufs/groups/groups07
is at least one double shared path, there are some more.

As I just tested
/etc/zfs/exports gets created by FreeBSD when executing
zfs set sharenfs=on zpool/export/dataset

Just like SirDice and ucomp wrote.

So if I understand them right, the advice is something like: set all zfs datasets to sharenfs=off.

As I understand it, the zfs came from solaris, which implemented the sharesmb and sharenfs property.
But the sharing in FreeBSD was implemented differently than in solaris, when zfs came into FreeBSD.

Yes but the path definitions are different:

/etc/zfs/exports:
/ufs/groups/groups07 -sec=krb5p

/etc/exports:
/ufs/groups/groups07 -alldirs fox.xyz.ourdomain.se elk.xyz.ourdomain.se cat.xyz.ourdomain.se fly.xyz.ourdomain.se dog.xyz.ourdomain.se

I think the first line is only valid in an nfsv4 context? If it works that way they are not really doubled.

Now, this is just a general comment but I see this happening so many times...

Why all the fine tuning on such a system? When looking at /etc/sysctl.conf and /boot/loader.conf (to a lesser degree) I see several changed system settings of which I wonder why you'd even bother with those?

The one thing I often see from people who migrate from Linux is that they start treating other environments as if it was Linux. The kernel? Obviously that needs to be micro managed because on Linux you can often get a better performance by optimizing your kernel. Only thing is that this doesn't apply to an OS such as FreeBSD. In fact: in most cases you'll get better results from simply using the standard GENERIC kernel. For starters it'll save you the time to build the whole thing.

But this also applies to system settings. Many Linux admins set certain values because they think they obviously need 'm because that's how it used to work on Linux. Or they read about it on the Internet somewhere and assumed it will also apply to them. But why? FreeBSD isn't Linux so don't treat it as such: if it isn't broke, don't try to fix it.

Don't assume that you need to increase the message buffer because of your workload. Test, monitor and then change accordingly if needed. Don't raise cache sizes to "increase your performance", I'll bet you don't even know if the standard performance would be suitable or not in the first place.

Now, don't get me wrong... I'm not saying that all this is the cause of your problems. In fact I'm sharing quite a bit of assumptions myself here as well. But I do seriously wonder if all that tweaking didn't cause (some of) the problems in the first place, or affect it.

If you haven't done this already then I'd seriously consider to double check on why you think you need those system config changes and if you can't directly tie them into actual problems then get rid of those and let the system handle it.

/etc/sysctl.conf:

the "vfs.nfsd...." lines were put there because we had certain problems. The man page for nfsd told us that these lines would solve the problem, and they did!

"If the server has stopped servicing clients and has generated a console
message like "nfsd server cache flooded...", the value for
vfs.nfsd.tcphighwater needs to be increased. This should allow the
server to again handle requests without a reboot. Also, you may want to
consider decreasing the value for vfs.nfsd.tcpcachetimeo to several
minutes (in seconds) instead of 12 hours when this occurs."

I don't know why we use the other settings, maybe I can find out.

For this server we have migrated from Solaris, not Linux!
