Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-5997) [linearstore] Cannot write to journal files when store dir is located in /tmp
Date Thu, 14 Aug 2014 16:34:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5997?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14097179#comment-14097179
] 

Andrew Stitcher commented on QPID-5997:
---------------------------------------

This is very likely caused by the filesystem for --store-dir not supporting O_DIRECT. 

There was also a report on IRC of this happening with XFS and ext4 over a Xen block device.
In this case it seems likely that the issue is the block device somehoe, not the fs. This
implies that the broker with store may not work in some VM situations.

The possible solutions I can see are:

* Fall back to opening without O_DIRECT if the open fails - there is no change in reliability
guarantees just a possible loss of performance.

* Detect EINVAL here and print a more useful warning/error message, but this won't help if
you can't change your underlying block device.

> When starting a broker using linearstore, and which has *\-\-store-dir* set to /tmp,
the store fails with {{JERR_JNLF_OPEN: Unable to open file for write... errno=22 (Invalid
argument)...}} It is also possible that using /tmp in *\-\-data-dir* may have the same effect
if there is no separate *\-\-store-dir* parameter, this remains to be tested.
> This may be an issue with tempfs, but the nature of the problem is unknown at this time.
Some anecdotal evidence from Alan Conway suggests that if /tmp is a part of the regular root
file system, it works ok, but if it is mounted in a separate partition, then this error occurs.
