Why are the messages 'Resource temporarily unavailable' or 'iobuf not found' showing up in Gluster brick logs?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Reviewing brick logs at /var/log/glusterfs/bricks/mount-path.log, the following error messages are observed:

    [2020-08-06 12:30:40.668645] I [glusterfsd-mgmt.c:977:glusterfs_handle_attach] 0-glusterfs: got attach for /var/lib/glusterd/vols/testvol/testvol.var-lib-heketi-mounts-vg_XXXXX-brick_XXXXX

  • Alternatively, io-bufs related error messages are also a key symptom of this problem:

  • In glusterd log file, available at /var/log/glusterfs/glusterd.log, there are traces about bricks being disconnected:

    [2020-08-06 12:30:40.667838] I [glusterd-utils.c:5671:attach_brick] 0-management: add brick /var/lib/heketi/mounts/vg_XXXXX/brick_XXXXX/brick to existing process for /var/lib/heketi/mounts/vg_XXXXX/brick_XXXXX/brick

  • In the output of the command gluster v status VOLNAME, the brick above is showing as 'N/A'.
