bcfg2 server hangs on SSHbase

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 1.4.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:


When bcfg2 generates the ssh_known_hosts file it appears the SSHbase plugin hangs for about 5 minutes when it encounters hostnames that do not resolve. Once I remove all of the files in the SHbase/ folder, bcfg2 has no problems building configs.

The logs when running the server with -v have a lot of:

Failed to find IP address for <hostname>

Then after those it has a number of:

Ignoring key for unknown host <hostname>

This can be CLOSED as it was just a timing thing with no cache on SSHbase just takes quite awhile.

This is due to the large number of metadata lookups SSHbase can do at times. It can be remediated by enabling metadata caching, but we should still find ways to improve the situation within SSHbase for those who can't use metadata caching.

Closing for now. Feel free to reopen on github since trac is no longer very closely monitored.
