Applies to

  • ONTAP 8.2 or newer
  • Docker Swarm

Issue

  • High CPU is visible on one or more nodes
  • Running node -run <node_name> -command top against the node shows vldb with high WCPU%

Example:

 PID USERNAME     THR PRI NICE   SIZE    RES STATE   C   TIME   WCPU COMMAND
 6685 root         101  47    0   290M   109M uwait   1    ??? 410.99% vldb <-----------
 1709 root         231  66    0  1092M   449M RUN     7    ??? 141.06% mgwd
 1929 root           1   8    -     0K    64K WAIT    3 1141.4  8.79% NwkThd_04
 3308 root           1  12    -     0K    64K RUN     0 366.6H  8.69% wafl_exempt00
 1927 root           1   8    -     0K    64K WAIT    3 1142.8  8.64% NwkThd_02
 3312 root           1  12    -     0K    64K RUN     0 366.6H  8.54% wafl_exempt04
 3310 root           1  12    -     0K    64K RUN     1 366.7H  8.50% wafl_exempt02

 

  • system node run -node <node_name> rdfile /etc/log/mlog/mgwd.log contains entries similar to the following, where aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd is an IP address belonging to one or more Docker Swarm servers

Example:
