Description Sysadmin HTL-Leonding 2018-05-18 13:00:40 UTC
Winbindd locked up again as mentioned in the second entry of bug 13439

Too me it seems that in both cases there are issues with tdb (either there is some bug in libtdb or the server has corrupted tdb files causing issues?)

Unfortunately I had not rebuild libtdb with debug info before it locked up

ldb was downgraded to 1.1.29-r1 (Gentoo) for samba 4.6.15 
tdb is version 1.3.15
tevent is version 0.9.36
glibc is version 2.25-r11 (Gentoo)

Interesting is that there are about 5 winbindd processes with 4 being in epoll_wait() and one being stuck:

Comment 1 Stefan Metzmacher 2018-05-18 15:04:34 UTC
Can you try "dbwrap_tdb_mutexes:*=no" in the [global] section.
Maybe your kernel/glibc has a broken implementation of robust mutexs.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1401665

Dear Mr. Metzmacher,

thank you for this very useful suggestion. Using the Test Code v2 code from the RH bug id you posted and running the normal priority and the realtime priority program in parallel, the realtime priority process seems to lock up.

So I have added the suggested option to smb.conf and hope that this resolves the issues (installing a fixed/patched kernel/glibc would be the better way and will happen at some point in time (when patches/unmasked fixed versions are available)).

Btw. Is the dbwrap_tdb_mutexes option undocumented (and thus might vanish sometime without further notice)? At least "man smb.conf" using Samba 4.6.15 doesn't tell anything about it.
Comment 3 Sysadmin HTL-Leonding 2018-05-22 19:45:30 UTC

Maybe I didn't understand how to run the Test Code v2. 

I tried it on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (HWE kernel 4.13 with the latest updates on 18.05.2018) on real hardware (AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+)  - as far as I remember it uses glibc 2.13 --> failed (no process owned the mutex).

I run it today (22.05.2018) on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kernel 4.15.0-22-generic) with the latest updates (uses glibc 2.27) on a Windows 10 1803 Hyper-V UEFI-VM and one of the two test_mutex_raw processes stopped.

So I don't know whether
a) I have done something wrong (should the two instances of test_mutex_raw not be run in parallel (one with normal priority and one with realtime priority))?
b) the test code has some issues?
c) I'm just unlucky and only found broken combinations (please don't tell me that another OS (BSD) works)?
d) there aren't many working robust mutexes implementations using glibc and Linux available and thus it shouldn't be used?

Btw. it seems that the used glibc version might have been 2.25-r10 (which is missing the patch for BZ 21778). But unfortunately the Test Code v2 also hangs with 2.25-r11 (if a) should not be the case).
