(Noticed via alert for failed systemd unit.)

So far I've restarted the unit and it works. Not sure why it was running into a timeout. If it was just a one-time problem we can maybe just close the ticket again. For now I've been creating it to have a record.

Suggestions

  • There's no user impact
  • This only occurred once so far
  • We don't know what caused the timeout
  • Do a brief research on what this error means

History

#2 Updated by okurz 3 months ago

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1649857 mentions that there can be a problem with the boot option "rd.debug" which here does not apply for us.

sudo systemctl show systemd-journal-flush.service | grep ^Timeout
shows TimeoutStartUSec=1min 30s, so default. Maybe OSD being a VM which is running a heavy load and lots of logs needs longer sometimes.

I added a custom timeout configuration with

sudo mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/systemd-journal-flush.service.d/ && echo -e "[Service]\nTimeoutStartSec=300" | sudo tee /etc/systemd/system/systemd-journal-flush.service.d/startup-timeout.conf

Created
https://gitlab.suse.de/openqa/salt-states-openqa/-/merge_requests/669
to make that persistent.
