Home file server / disk enclosure troubles

On March 26th the file server here at home started resetting one of its ATA links over and over, in a couple of bursts each hour. Like this:

Despite the masses of link resets a couple of times an hour it all seemed to be working still, and it was a few days before I looked into it further.

The hardware is an HP Microserver with a Sans Digital 8-bay SATA disk enclosure connected over 2x eSATA. The Microserver’s four internal SATA slots are used for something else; these messages relate to the two eSATA links (ata5 and ata6) to the disk enclosure. There’s seven disks in there, six of which form a btrfs filesystem which holds the majority of files we use here at home (yes, I’ve heard about ZFSonLinux. No, I’m not interested in using it yet).

I have never been too happy with that Sans Digital enclosure:

  • Half the LEDs on the front have never worked. So you only get link lights for one SATA link.
  • As a more general example of the above, the mechanical build quality just seems bad. It’s really flimsy.
  • It’s pretty slow to detect disks and spews errors in the dmesg as it does.
  • It’s done this thing before where it resets the SATA link over and over, but the problem mysteriously went away when everything was power-cycled.

So anyway, plan of action:

  1. Try rebooting everything.
  2. If no joy, buy a new enclosure from somewhere and try to make it not another one of those.

It was 30th March before I got around to giving that a go. There was a short period of terror where the Microserver abruptly declared

No boot device. Insert boot floppy.

but amusingly this turned out to be because the BIOS was set to prefer booting off a USB disk, and I had left my Sansa Clip plugged in to charge it. It was trying to boot off of an mp3 player.

Sadly once we did actually get past GruB things were not much happier. SATA links resetting pretty much continuously, to the point were it couldn’t even get to the end of Linux attaching the disks as SCSI devices. Unplugging the eSATA cables entirely left the Microserver happy to boot with no issues other than all my data being missing!

A process of elimination (take all disks out, boot, put disks back in one by one and boot each time until everything complains) allowed me to identify one particular disk that was really upsetting things. I was able to boot without that disk inserted, and I could mount the btrfs filesystem in degraded mode as it’s a RAID-1 for both data and metadata.

At this point I decided to push my luck and try inserting that one problematic disk again. As soon as I did it all went crazy again, and the link resets caused a bunch more devices to be ejected by Linux. I was left with a btrfs filesystem with three remaining devices that had mounted itself read-only due to read errors.

So, is it the disk or is the the enclosure?

I don’t have a spare enclosure so it’s rather difficult to stress test that, but bearing in mind that I’m not too happy with it anyway I decided to buy a new enclosure anyway and investigate the existing one later. This time I decided to try this thing, which appears to be a CFi-B7886CM. No I’ve never heard of them either but I doubt it is any different to what Sans Digital buy and slap their branding on.

It’s quite a bit cheaper than the Sans Digital unit, though obviously it only has one eSATA link. I’m not too bothered by that as I doubt that any four of my disks were exceeding 3Gbps or whatever, so yeah, whatever, I’ll put six disks on one link. It might even be a benefit if I want to add another one of these enclosures later, as there’s no more room in the Microserver for more eSATA cards.

While that was on order I got things back up and running with the five disks and had the btrfs filesystem running degraded (yes, I do have backups). I attached that suspect disk to another machine via a USB dock and was able to repeatedly read it all, perform SMART long tests on it without error, etc.

The disk caddies are almost identical, and are interchangeable.
The disk caddies are almost identical, and are interchangeable.

The new enclosure arrived today and my first impressions of it are fairly positive. In terms of appearance and dimensions it’s almost identical to the Sans Digital one. In fact the disk caddies look identical bar the colour of the plastic handle, and are interchangeable, which saved me the hassle of having to unscrew 28 screws (seven disks, four per disk) and screw them in again. It definitely feels bit more sturdy though.

On boot for some reason I expected the btrfs filesystem to not automatically mount. It had been running with a device missing for nearly two days, and in that state you have to do

# mount -odegraded /srv/tank

to get it to mount, so I was thinking that even with all disks inserted it would decide that the out-of-date disk was unacceptable and require manual intervention to mount it. Well, I was wrong about that. It automatically mounted it and then immediately started complaining:

It's nice to have all the blinkenlights blinking.

This is apparently what you would normally expect from btrfs fixing the out-of-date metadata from the other copy.

Everything seems okay; there are no read errors and no more link resets, and a cursory inspection of important data is matching up with checksums from last good backup. Oh, and all the SATA link/activity LEDs work!

I have to now:

  • do a btrfs scrub to make sure all the data on sdk is correct.
  • investigate the Sans Digital enclosure to see if I can replicate its brokenness.
While we're at it, is there a brand of label tape that doesn't dry up and peel off?

Electronically I can’t tell if it’s any different to the old enclosure (aside from only having one SATA link, not two).

Comparing the dmesg between “SCSI subsystem initialized” and the last SCSI disk being attached, for the old and the new enclosure I see a few interesting differences. The new one is a little bit faster, and has fewer weird errors (failed to IDENTIFY, etc.).

Old:

[    5.818389] ata5.15: Port Multiplier 1.1, 0x1095:0x3726 r23, 6 ports, feat 0x1/0x9

New:

[    8.116807] ata6.15: Port Multiplier 1.2, 0x197b:0x575f r0, 15 ports, feat 0x5/0xf

So the new one supports Port Multiplier v1.2 as opposed to v1.1. Presumably that is good news. I wonder what feat 0x1/0x9 vs feat 0x5/0xf means?

With the old enclosure the SATA links seem to come up as a mixture of 1.5 and 3.0Gbps, and multiple times as the links are reset:

Hmm, probably should investigate why /dev/sd[a-d] all have their write cache disabled.

Dear System Integrators, a few words about screwing

Right, System Integrators – those companies that buy components from Supermicro et al and build you a server out of them. You guys seem to have a bit of a fascination with screwing. Screwing things in as tight as you can. Please stop.

It’s 100% true that vibration of components like hard disks is bad. numerous studies have been done that prove that vibration causes performance problems as drives need to do more corrective work.

However, this does not mean that you have to screw in the drives to the caddies to the limit of what is physically possible. They just need to be tightened until a little force won’t tighten them any more.

When you supply me with a server that’s got four super-tightened screws for each drive in it, and I deploy that server, chances are that one of the first things that will break in that server is one of the disk drives.

During the years those screws have been there they haven’t got any looser. It’s likely that if you tightened them all to the limit of your strength and tools, by now the force required to unscrew them will be less than the force required to deform the screw head. Like this:

Stripped screw heads in a drive caddy

No, this is not an issue of using the wrong driver head. Yes, you will strip a screw if you use the wrong driver head. That’s why I carry this stuff every time I go to a datacentre:

A selection of screwdrivers for your pleasure

There’s two exactly correct drivers in there, and several that should also work anyway despite being a little bit off. I have never had a problem unscrewing any screw that I originally put in. Probably because I don’t tighten them like I am some sort of lunatic. I can even unscrew them around a corner with the offline driver. Oh yeah baby. So far nothing I have screwed in with merely normal force has fallen apart.

And this is not an isolated occurrence! Nearly all of you seem to do this with every screw, everywhere. Stop it!

The drive in that caddy is a dead one, and luckily I had a spare caddy with me for the replacement drive to go in, otherwise I too would have been screwed beyond the limits of my endurance.

So, now I’ve got to drill those out just to get this caddy back to being useful again. Or more likely find someone else to drill it out for me as I don’t trust myself with power tools really.

ffffuuuuu

Where are all the low power enterprise SATA drives?

It’s a bit annoying that there don’t seem to be many low power SATA enterprise drives.

The Western Digital 500GB Green Power RE2-GP ones were good for a while, but then they went end-of-life. The only enterprise Green Power now are the 2TB RE4-GP at ~£160+VAT a go. What do you do at the 750GB – 1TB scale?

Then again, according to figures from span.com, the power usage of say the 1TB Hitachi-HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 24×7 HUA722010CLA330 0A39289 isn’t that far off that of the 2TB WD RE4-GP:

Drive Capacity Wattage Wattage (Idle) Wattage (Sleep) Cost
Western Digital Caviar RE4-GP WD2002FYPS 2TB 6.8 3.7 0.8 £161
Hitachi-HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 24×7 HUA722010CLA330 0A39289 1TB 8.4 3.9 0.8 £86

So maybe drives that aren’t specifically marketed as “low power” are getting better in that regard?

Confusing hardware issues at home

I’ve got this server in my loft at home that’s mainly a file server for the data we use/view/listen to here. It looks like this:

A bit of a beast. When I bought it over 4 years ago I somehow thought I’d be adding a lot more drives. Anyway.

It’s been a good, reliable bit of kit and had no problems for a long time apart from overheating in the old house, but that was a problem with the room it was in. It’s never even lost a disk. A couple of months ago though the PSU went pop and ever since then it started occasionally giving me this sort of thing:

There’s 6 drives in there and the above messages have been seen referring to all of them at one time or another, so I don’t believe it’s as simple as a broken disk.

The incidences of the above have become more and more frequent, so today I spent some time trying to work out where the problem lay.

The way it seemed to affect all ATA busses made me think maybe the (new) PSU was underperforming, but I tried two different ones and they seem fine.

The six disks are inserted into two 3-bay Icydocks. Here’s what they look like:

They’re pretty dumb devices which just let you fit three 3.5″ disks into two 5.25″ bays. On the back they have three SATA data connectors (one for each disk), two molex power, one SATA power and a fan. I bought them because I didn’t want to buy a really expensive disk chassis for home, but I also didn’t want to screw six drives inside the case where they’d be hard to get access to.

Inside I have four of the drives connected to the motherboard’s SATA controller, and two of them connected to an additional Si3112 SATA card. This setup has been in place for over four years.

When all the drives are removed from the Icydocks and directly connected to SATA and power, everything appears to be fine. When either of the Icydocks have three disks in, the problem reappears. I then put three disks in an Icydock, three disks directly connected, but popped one of the disks in the Icydock out. This appears to also work fine (the file systems are all RAID-10 so can stand to run with one disk missing).

I’m a bit confused by that. When I was testing the Icydocks individually, I was using the same set of three disks with each one (with the other three disks connected directly). I could believe that the disk I have now removed is bad in some way that causes the whole bus to reset, but I would have to ask why it affects the other busses, and why it doesn’t happen when it’s directly connected.

I know other people who bought Icydocks and had a real struggle getting them to behave reliably, but mine worked well from the start and have done for over four years. I could believe that one of them went bad when the power popped, even though they are very simple electro-mechanical devices, but it’s hard to believe that two of them did.

I can’t just remove the Icydocks from the picture and forget about it because that leaves six SATA drives running on the floor. 🙂 They need to be inside some form of enclosure, and I don’t want to fork out for a new enclosure or two right now if I can help it.

I’ve left it there for this evening, but I’ll have to return to it tomorrow afternoon. I’ll probably start by putting the other three disks back in their Icydock to see if the removal of that one really does fix it.

Any ideas for ways to narrow the problem down?

I hate hardware.

Update 2010-03-31

I tentatively believe I’ve tracked down the issue.

Joel wins: despite the new PSU being a bit beefier in max output than the dead one I was replacing (500W vs 384W), the new one actually had a lower limit on the 12V rail: 2.5A vs the previous 3.3A.

I scavenged a PSU from elsewhere that also had 3.3A and everything seems fine now and has been for 2 days.

I think that things worked fine outside the Icydocks because the Icydocks have fans, which are probably not very good, and suck additional power. Or else they maybe don’t do any kind of staggered spinup that might happen without them.
