Description Abhijith Das 2007-01-29 18:41:37 UTC
Description of problem: gfs_quota list -f /fs/path appears to hang when the hidden quota file becomes an unmanageably large sparse file. Duplicate of RHEL4 bug bz210362 The gfs_quota tool sequentially reads the quota file ignorant of large holes in the quota file which takes a lot of time. The gfs_quota tool needs to intelligently skip the holes in the file and only read quota file information that's on actual data-filled blocks.

cvs commit -m "fix for bug 225199 - Same as GFS1 fix in RHEL4 (bug 210362). We don't run throug the entire gfs_quota sparse file to do a list operation anymore. We get the layout of the gfs_quota file on disk and only read quota information off the data blocks that are actually in use. Also added functionality to GFS_IOCTL_SUPER to provide the metadata of the hidden quota file." gfs-kernel/src/gfs/ioctl.c gfs/gfs_quota/layout.c gfs/gfs_quota/Makefile gfs/gfs_quota/main.c gfs/gfs_quota/gfs_quota.h Checking in gfs-kernel/src/gfs/ioctl.c; /cvs/cluster/cluster/gfs-kernel/src/gfs/ioctl.c,v <-- ioctl.c new revision: 1.15; previous revision: 1.14 done Checking in gfs/gfs_quota/layout.c; /cvs/cluster/cluster/gfs/gfs_quota/layout.c,v <-- layout.c new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1 done Checking in gfs/gfs_quota/Makefile; /cvs/cluster/cluster/gfs/gfs_quota/Makefile,v <-- Makefile new revision: 1.6; previous revision: 1.5 done Checking in gfs/gfs_quota/main.c; /cvs/cluster/cluster/gfs/gfs_quota/main.c,v <-- main.c new revision: 1.4; previous revision: 1.3 done Checking in gfs/gfs_quota/gfs_quota.h; /cvs/cluster/cluster/gfs/gfs_quota/gfs_quota.h,v <-- gfs_quota.h new revision: 1.3; previous revision: 1.2 done This fix takes care of the problem in gfs1. But the issue still exists for GFS2 (bug 235299).
