Error description

  • The ahaqueue process of CAA on VIOS SSP consumes high CPU
    utilization about 60%.
    
    io_delay and get_nextseq function in ahaqueue proc takes
    high CPU resource.
    
    Subroutine       %   Source
    ==========    ====== ======
    .io_delay     47.81
    ../../../../../../src/bos/kernel/lib/
                         libsysp/iodelay.c
    .get_nextseq  11.05
    ../../../../../src/bos/kernel/cluster/
                         kbase_kernext_services.c
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • High cpu utilization seen in io_delay() and get_nextseq(), no
    further processing of AHAFS events
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed algorithm that processed AHAFS events to allow for the
    case that an AHAFS event was missed, which previously caused
    an infinite loop.
    

Temporary fix
