Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-3375) qpid-route does not resolve hostname and this causes problems with localhost among others
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2011 16:16:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-3375?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13072890#comment-13072890

Andrew Stitcher commented on QPID-3375:

Actually it's not clear to me what the bug here actually is:

Is it that one broker will pass one of its routes to another federated broker, if this is
so then this behaviour can never be guaranteed to work as the view of the network may be different
from the two locations irrespective of loopback addresses. But the best hope of making this
work is to pass DNS names around and not IP addresses.


Is it that the admin needs to take into account the difference between networking where he
is and where the broker he configures is? In this case we need to improve the documentation
and tools substantially, because qpid-route doesn't really make explicit from which viewpoint
the network names are resolved. We just talk about source and destination without being clear
from whose viewpoint the routes are named.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: python tools
>    Affects Versions: 0.10
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: William Henry

> All the examples for Federation and qpid-route use localhost. For a multihost environment
this is not a good idea.
> 1. 'localhost':<port> can end up in the routing table of remote host erroneously.
> 2. Resolving localhost doesn't help as you'd end up with in the route erroneously
> 3. Even non localhost names don't get resolved and checked.
> Here is the test I was performing. 
> I was doing some playing/testing with federation and I used two machines: my
> laptop (sligo) and a remote machine (buzz).  I ran three brokers: 2 on sligo on
> ports 5672 and 5682 and one on remote on port 5682.
> From sligo I set up some links between all the brokers.
> (The problem has already occurred on the links above. Listing the routes will show the
problem. But we'll go on)
> From sligo I set up a topic exchange on each broker:
> $ qpid-config -a localhost:5672 add exchange topic T.Prod
> $ qpid-config -a localhost:5682 add exchange topic T.Prod
> $ qpid-config -a buzz.somedomain.com:5682 add exchange topic T.Prod
> On sligo I set up dynamic routes from source localhost:5672 to localhost:5682
> and buzz.somedomain.com:5682.
> When I list the routes from sligo I see:
> $ qpid-route route list localhost:5682
> localhost:5682 localhost:5672 T.Prod <dynamic>
> $ qpid-route route list buzz.somedomain.com:5682
> buzz.somedomain.com:5682 localhost:5672 T.Prod <dynamic>
> When I run example program drain on localhost:5682 on sligo I get the messages sent using
the spout example program to default broker on sligo (on 5672).
> When I run drain on buzz I don't see anything.
> I see references to "localhost:5672" in the trace output of buzz's broker.  This is BAD!
> We need qpid-route to resolve hostname before passing the arg to the remote
> broker.
> (In the meantime we might want to warn users of using 'localhost' with
> qpid-route across different hosts.)
> I will attach a diff and a new version of qpid-route for review.
