SecondaryServerMonitoringDaemon cannot start on the compute node

hi all,

 

I cannot enable CMU monitoring in my cluster. After starting the monitoring engine on the CMU server the SecondaryServerMonitoringDaemon process cannot be started on the compute node. The process crashes after 5 seconds. As far as I understand CMU tries to restart the process every 30 seconds.

 

-> ssh-keys are distributed for user root

-> firewall is curently disabled

 

The installed versions and the logs are provided below. Can somebody give me a hint how too proceed here?

 

Thank you in advance, Rostislaw

 

PS: where can I open a support ticket for CMU?

Re: SecondaryServerMonitoringDaemon cannot start on the compute node

Hi Rostislaw,

Please increase the monitoring debug level CMU_MAIN_MONITORING_DEBUG_LEVEL, CMU_SEC_MONITORING_DEBUG_LEVEL, CMU_SMD_MONITORING_DEBUG_LEVEL to 3 in /opt/cmu/etc/cmuserver.conf file and restart the monitoring on head node using below steps.

# /opt/cmu/tools/cmu_stop_monitoring
( Wait for few minutes )
# /opt/cmu/tools/cmu_start_monitoring

Please wait for few minutes and capture below logs.

From head node:
                /opt/cmu/log/MainMonitoringDaemon_<server_name>.log
From compute nodes  where SecMD ran during this test;  
                /opt/cmu/log/SecondaryServerMonitoring_<server_name>.log
                /opt/cmu/log/SmallMonitoringDaemon_<server_name>.log

Also, please send us the "/opt/cmu/etc/ActionAndAlertsFile.txt" file from management node and what is the output of "rpm --verify cmu" from management node.
                
Can you run the following command on a management node :
In below command, <compute-node> is secondary server node or any other node.

#time ssh <compute-node> hostname

We had seen issues with Monitoring where it is unable to start on compute nodes due to ssh login delays.
If ssh logins to any of the compute nodes take a long time (ie., 5 seconds), monitoring fails to start on those nodes.
Incorrect DNS/gateway settings on the nodes is the reason for such ssh login delays.
For more details, please refer "Section 5.25 Monitoring fails to start on compute nodes due to ssh login delays" in Insight CMU v7.3.2 Release Notes.

>PS: where can I open a support ticket for CMU?
Please raise a case by calling to Local HP Support Center.

What is the name of the customer? Also, let us know the details of the customer?

Re: SecondaryServerMonitoringDaemon cannot start on the compute node

hi Pradeep,

 

thank you for your hint to raise the debug level.

 

I found messages  like the following in the MainMonitoringDaemon_asv11slt1.log:

 

[26-Oct-2015_11:03:25] [CMUResultReceiver ]  Received data from <10.250.128.153> instead of <172.23.99.34>
Will send single_halt order to SEC monitoring daemon of node <10.250.128.153> immediately CheckStopCondition

 

172.23.99.34 - that is the configured ip in the management network. This IP is configured in the CMU for the compute node asv12slt1

10.250.128.153 - that is the traffic ip address of the same node. This IP is configured in the DNS enty for the node asv12slt1.

 

As workaround I change the node name in CMU to asv12slt1-mgm. Now the CMU IP address and the DNS entry match. The issue is resolved now.

 

However I still see the errors for data collection. I assume I have to adopt the ActionAndAlertsFile to RHEL 7 (e.g. due to different names for network interfaces than eth0, eth1). I attached the logs from the compute node with those errors.

 

Or can you provide me updated version of this configuration file for RHEL7?

 

The project is a proof of concept for an automotive customer in Germany. Please contact me HP internally if you like to have more details.

 

Many thanks for your support!

Re: SecondaryServerMonitoringDaemon cannot start on the compute node

Hi,

 

This warning "[Warning] Data conversion failed for Action <eth1_MB/s_tx>value was -->NOK" is expected.

 

Looks like your compute node NICs are not detected legacy nic naming like eth0, eth1 etc. I hope it follows RHEL7 persistent nic naming schemes like eno1,eno2,ens1,ens3f0, ens3f1,em1,em2 etc.

 

This RHEL 7 naming scheme affects some of the NIC-related monitoring metrics like
"eth0_MB/s_rx", "eth1_MB/s_rx", etc. Please  add the appropriate network interface ACTION to the
/opt/cmu/etc/ActionAndAlertsFile.txt file and restart monitoring.

 

For more details, please refer Section 5.21 in Insight CMU v7.3.2 Release Notes.

 

There is no ActionAndAlerts File which have RHEL7 naming scheme. Please change the ACTION in the ActionAndAlertsFile.txt and restart monitoring.

 

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Pradeep A.
