Jewel ceph-fuse does not recover after lost connection to MDS
After ceph-fuse loses connection to MDS for few minutes, it does not recover - accessing mountpoint hangs processes.
Replicated using 10.2.3 and 10.2.5 clients. Didn't try on Kraken.
periodically poke mount:
while [ 1 ]; do date; ls -l cephfs/test ; sleep 10; done
then firewall connection to MDS:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 6816 -j DROP
after pokes stop wait few minutes (5?). If we wait for too short time, it recovers, if long enough it hangs. Attaching client logs with enabled debug options:
debug_mds = 20/20
debug_mds_balancer = 20/20
debug_mds_log = 20/20
debug_objecter = 20/20
debug_rados = 20/20
debug_client = 20/20
debug_ms = 20/20
debug_fuse = 20/20
and a thread backtrace.

Clients which lose connectivity to the MDS are evicted after a timeout given by the "mds session timeout" setting. Evicting a client may cause the client to get stuck, as it can't necessarily get back into a healthy state.
Presumably you are reproducing this artificially because you encountered it in practice somewhere; the solution in practice is to either increase that interval, or fix whatever is causing the loss of contact to begin with.
There are changes coming in the future that will make this functionality a bit friendlier to make the client cope more gracefully with being evicted, only evict clients when they're holding up other clients.

Yes, I am reproducing it artificially after short network blip caused permanent mount point hangs of multiple servers, sending load avg of these servers to the sky by periodic mountpoint stats (monitoring system).
If ceph-fuse cannot handle session reset and only way to recover is to manually SIGKILL ceph-fuse and remount, why doesn't ceph-fuse just kill itself? In my opinion erroring out a user would be much more friendlier than just hanging it permanently.

Hmm, now that I actually read the log (like a reasonable person :-)) it is a little bit strange that the server is sending the client client_session(stale) messages (not close messages) but then apparently dropping the client's getattrs.
Could you upload the MDS log from the same period, and mark the times at which the connection was interrupted and then restored?

Comparing logs I noticed that MDS clock is ~30s behind client. ntpd was dead on one of test servers... Will try to compensate in notes

Looking at src/client/Client.cc I think that ms_handle_remote_reset() "MetaSession::STATE_OPEN" case of state switch should reopen session instead of marking it stale. I could try making a diff moving case to be together with MetaSession::STATE_OPENING as it looks like it does the same. What do you think? Would session close/open have some other side effects for fuse client in open state?

I updated PR to do _closed_mds_session(s).
As for config option, I would expect client to reconnect automagically after connection loss (it is self-healing after all).
On the other hand, I can do config option too if it is considered a better way to handle this change.
