[OCTAVIA][ROCKY] - MASTER & BACKUP instances unexpectedly deleted by octavia

Hi Gael,

we had a similar issue in the past.
You could check the octiava healthmanager log (should be on the same node where the worker is running).
This component monitors the status of the Amphorae and restarts them if they don’t trigger a callback after a specific time. This might also happen if there is some connection issue between the two components.

But normally it should at least restart the LB with new Amphorae…

Hope that helps

Subject: [OCTAVIA][ROCKY] - MASTER & BACKUP instances unexpectedly deleted by octavia

Hi guys,

I’ve a weird situation here.

I smoothly operate a large scale multi-region Octavia service using the default amphora driver which imply the use of nova instances as loadbalancers.

Everything is running really well and our customers (K8s and traditional users) are really  happy with the solution so far.

However, yesterday one of those customers using the loadbalancer in front of their ElasticSearch cluster poked me because this loadbalancer suddenly passed from ONLINE/OK to ONLINE/ERROR, meaning the amphoras were no longer available but yet the anchor/member/pool and listeners settings were still existing.

So I investigated and found out that the loadbalancer amphoras have been destroyed by the octavia user.

The weird part is, both the master and the backup instance have been destroyed at the same moment by the octavia service user.

Is there specific circumstances where the octavia service could decide to delete the instances but not the anchor/members/pool ?

It’s worrying me a bit as there is no clear way to trace why does Octavia did take this action.

I digged within the nova and Octavia DB in order to correlate the action but except than validating my investigation it doesn’t really help as there are no clue of why the octavia service did trigger the deletion.

If someone have any clue or tips to give me I’ll be more than happy to discuss this situation.

Cheers guys!
