I have a cinder snapshot that won't delete. Errors in log suggest that it is busy but I'm not sure why. Any suggestions as to why it might be busy are greatly welcomed!

Here is the log file line: <155>Nov 30 15:54:17 node-1 cinder-volume 2015-11-30 15:54:17.722 51547 ERROR cinder.volume.manager [reqXXX] Cannot delete snapshot XXX: snapshot is busy

We need to see what cinder is doing with that particular snapshot. For that can you also scroll up and see in the logs what information it contains about the snapshot. use its id in the logs to get a more precise info.

Secondly if we concerned just about deleting then we can try resetting the state of the snapshot via command 'cinder reset-state <id>', Probably then you will be able to delete it
