Re: [Xen-API] [Xen-devel] bug in xenstored? No notification to subscription on @introduceDomain

Please don't top post and don't drop people/lists from the CC. I have
reinstated xen-devel and refrained from trimming the quotes as heavily
as I normally would.

Counter to my own advice I have also dropped xen-hosts@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
because last time I got a bounce in Russian to the effect that the group
does not exist (according to google translate).

Are the two event correlated? i.e. is the oxenstored process huge when
these failures occur? Inability to allocate memory could explain some of
your symptoms although I'd expect it to be more fatal more quickly and
obviously than what you describe or to have wider impact.

What sort of debug information are you after?

There are various logging options which you could turn up to 11
in /etc/xensource/xenstored.conf but I do not have a complete list of
what they are, similarly for command line options -- perhaps someone on
xen-api@ could chime in? Otherwise looking in the source might be the
best way to find out what they are, try xenstore.ml, parse_args.ml
logging.ml would be good places to start. (if having done so you feel
motivated to write a patch to add docs/man/oxenstored.1.pod we would be
much obliged...)
