Snapd pegged cpu, updates never completing on core


#1

I woke a machine up today which has been off for a few weeks. It did a bunch of updates and restarted a couple of times and now I have snapd consuming lots of CPU and lxd snap never finishes.

This is the change which seems wedged. Is this a lxd problem (tagging @stgraber) or snapd? I can’t remove lxd or get this to finish (it’s been a couple of hours).

I tried to abort

Which triggered a reboot. When it came back, it got back in the same state…

How do I unwedge this?


#2

What is snap services lxd show? It’s possible that the lxd snap service is stuck, but even then I think there is supposed to be a start-timeout that should kill it if it takes too long


#3
popey@localhost:~$ snap services lxd
Service       Startup  Current   Notes
lxd.activate  enabled  inactive  -
lxd.daemon    enabled  active    socket-activated

#4

Is there anything interesting in the logs for the lxd snap’s services? i.e. journalctl -e --no-pager -u snap.lxd.*

Also what does systemd think about the lxd snap’s service states? i.e. systemctl status snap.lxd.*

This looks like at least partially an lxd bug because there is no corresponding “done” status for snap.lxd.activate.service, see

Sep 10 19:22:49 localhost.localdomain systemd[1]: Starting Service for snap application lxd.activate...

For example on my machine I normally see this:

Sep 10 15:49:09 systemd[1]: Starting Service for snap application lxd.activate...
Sep 10 15:49:09 lxd.activate[39644]: => Starting LXD activation

Sep 10 15:49:10 systemd[1]: snap.lxd.activate.service: Succeeded.
Sep 10 15:49:10 systemd[1]: Started Service for snap application lxd.activate.

and also that the service is still in the activating state as reported by systemd:

   Active: activating (start) since Tue 2019-09-10 19:22:49 UTC; 1h 13min ago

At least why that is stuck is an lxd bug, however there’s also a bug that at some point snapd should have aborted it and moved on.

Now, to unstuck this you should be able to at least kill the systemd service which I think will likely cause snapd to abandon this refresh, or it may put it back into a loop waiting for the same thing again. Try:

sudo systemctl kill snap.lxd.activate.service

#7

That did it!
