glance operations are failing

glance image-delete and glance image-create don't spew any errors they just seemingly hang indefinitely


There are no red flags in /var/log/glance/api.log

There are no red flags in /var/log/glance/registry.log

This is an all-in-one install

Where else should I look?

What else should I look for?

Try to run glance with --debug option.

I had a 2G /var

re-kickstarted with a 50G /var and it is now happy(er)

so I guess it was a disk space issue, maybe

glance image-create runs just fine.

I had an issue with nova-compute hanging as well, with no helpful log messages even with debug enabled. It was a rabbitmq issue. Check rabbitmq logs for entries like this:

=INFO REPORT==== 12-Nov-2014::15:14:32 === Disk free space insufficient. Free bytes:696029184 Limit:1000000000

=WARNING REPORT==== 12-Nov-2014::15:14:32 === disk resource limit alarm set on node 'rabbit@xxxxxxx'.

* Publishers will be blocked until this alarm clears *

hmmmm I see those. What disk is it complaining about ? I don't think that's the issue though, because the errors were from yesterday.

If you see that error message, rabbit will not accept messages until there's more space in that filesystem. By default it's in /var. Once space is available, the alarm will clear and rabbitmq will accept messages again.

First of all try one command "glance --debug image-list"

and paste the output you got.
