Logstash config test hangs when Logstash is running w/ DLQ enabled


(Michael Eves) #1

Hi,

Logstash: 5.6.1

Additional plugins:

  • x-pack (5.6.1)
  • logstash-filter-prune (3.0.3)

I'm observing some strange behaviour when running Logstash config test when an instance of Logstash is already running with the DLQ enabled.

I am running /usr/local/logstash/bin/logstash -f /etc/logstash/conf.d/ -t after Logstash has been configured & started, so there is already a running Logstash instance when I run the test:

/usr/bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -XX:+UseParNewGC -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:CMSInitiatingOccupancyFraction=75 -XX:+UseCMSInitiatingOccupancyOnly -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Xmx512m -Xms512m -Xss2048k -Djffi.boot.library.path=/usr/local/logstash-5.6.1/vendor/jruby/lib/jni -Xbootclasspath/a:/usr/local/logstash-5.6.1/vendor/jruby/lib/jruby.jar -classpath : -Djruby.home=/usr/local/logstash-5.6.1/vendor/jruby -Djruby.lib=/usr/local/logstash-5.6.1/vendor/jruby/lib -Djruby.script=jruby -Djruby.shell=/bin/sh org.jruby.Main /usr/local/logstash/lib/bootstrap/environment.rb logstash/runner.rb --path.settings /usr/local/logstash/config

Running the config test with debug I can see it hangs at the below:

[2018-02-22T11:57:05,017][DEBUG][logstash.runner          ] --------------- Logstash Settings -------------------

If I stop Logstash and run the config test it works fine, and the output that follows the above is initialisation of the input plugins:

2018-02-22T12:00:40,360][DEBUG][logstash.plugins.registry] On demand adding plugin to the registry {:name=>"syslog", :type=>"input", :class=>LogStash::Inputs::Syslog}

[2018-02-22T12:00:40,378][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@port = 5000
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,378][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@type = "test"
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,378][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@id = "77197fd5f8e37039a8c6b680833438b68075726e-1"
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,378][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@enable_metric = true
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,379][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@codec = <LogStash::Codecs::Plain id=>"plain_7d54ba1e-1ad6-42fe-b3d7-88a64fc4065d", enable_metric=>true, charset=>"UTF-8">
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,379][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@add_field = {}
[2018-02-22T12:00:40,379][DEBUG][logstash.inputs.syslog   ] config LogStash::Inputs::Syslog/@host = "0.0.0.0"

So the config test only fails when Logstash is already running; however I think I've narrowed it down a bit further. If I change my main Logstash config (/usr/local/logstash/config/logstash.yml) to set DLQ to false (previously true), the config test successfully runs and completes, even when Logstash is already running in the background.:

dead_letter_queue.enable: false

I've tried doing an strace on the config test when it hangs, but I just see the below constantly looping, so I'm not too sure what it's trying to do when it gets stuck:

strace -fp 19505

[pid 19505] futex(0x7f45d413ec54, FUTEX_WAIT_BITSET_PRIVATE, 1, {5129, 840252721}, ffffffff) = -1 ETIMEDOUT (Connection timed out)
[pid 19505] futex(0x7f45d413ec28, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 0
[pid 19505] clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {5129, 840461101}) = 0
[pid 19505] clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {5129, 840507583}) = 0
[pid 19505] clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {5129, 840537435}) = 0
[pid 19505] clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC, {5129, 840576137}) = 0

This has been tested on a fresh install/server

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers,
Mike

Testing on Logstash 6.2.2 I get the below:

This seems to be correct behaviour, possibly fixed with https://github.com/elastic/logstash/commit/64388f34a566722fa49788239b116fe010e01a16 ?

Closing this off since upgrading appears it will fix the issue.
