Subject:   PHP-FPM processes hang in UFS-state
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
This issue happened in 3 different servers the last months.

Some PHP-FPM processes hang in UFS-state.

The websites that cause the hang are all Prestashop and it's related to =
their var/cache files (I believe it happens when they clear the cache =
and the files are regenerated).

This is a php-fpm process that hang:

procstat -kk 73548

  PID    TID COMM                TDNAME              KSTACK
73548 100630 php-fpm             -                   mi_switch+0xe2 =
sleepq_wait+0x2c sleeplk+0x185 lockmgr_xlock_hard+0x1f5 =
__lockmgr_args+0x2bf ffs_lock+0xa5 VOP_LOCK1_APV+0x7c _vn_lock+0x44 =
vget+0x4a vfs_hash_get+0xb0 ffs_vgetf+0x3f softdep_sync_buf+0xbee =
ffs_syncvnode+0x26f ffs_truncate+0x71b ufs_direnter+0x5f8 =
ufs_makeinode+0x5fb ufs_create+0x34 VOP_CREATE_APV+0x76=20

procstat -kk -a :

mount | grep home :

dumpfs /dev/mirror/gm0p7 :

I have to force reboot the server as /home is not possible to clean =
unmount. Then I run fsck which fixes some issues because of the unclean =
reboot. Then I run fsck again that shows no errors. Then I mount /home =
and first rename the cache folders and finally delete var/cache and =
allow it to regenerate prestashop files. But the same issue happens =
again after few days.

Any idea how to troubleshoot it?=
