Fix: track-untrack.c: regression of `--all --pid` option ordering

The `tests/regression/kernel/test_callstack` test uses the PID tracker
to restrict what events end up in the trace. It does that by using the
following lttng command:
  lttng untrack -s $SESSION_NAME --all --pid -k

A regression was introduced along with the UID tracker patch series that
makes the above command fail silently and return status 1. The bug is in
the argument parsing function that assumes that the tracker option
(`--pid` in this case) would appear before the `--all` option.

Where the above command fails, the one below works as expected:
  lttng untrack -s $SESSION_NAME --pid --all -k

Both ordering are valid and should be accepted.

When parsing the arguments, first record the fact that we encountered the
`--all` flag, and later check to what tracker it applies too.

At the moment, it's possible to have unknown options in the `track` and
`untrack` commands. They are silently ignored.

For example, the following command line is accepted without problem:
  lttng untrack HELLO -k --all --pid

This was witnessed in the `test_event_tracker` tests. The

are currently passing the `$1` bash variable of the function to the
`track` and `untrack` througth their "$@" variable.

The commands should not silently accept those unknown options.

1. After looping on all the known options, check if there is any leftover
  options and error out if it's the case.
2. Fix the `` functions to that they don't pass the `$1` variable

Fix: relayd: hostname check is too restrictive

The check performed by the relay daemon on hostnames is too
restrictive. Since existing session daemons directly use the hostname
returned by gethostname(), the relay daemon must correctly handle FQDN
hostnames, which may contain dots.

This has been observed on the LTTng CI's RHEL8 nodes which report an
FQDN hostname.

The new function 'is_name_path_safe' is used for both session and host
names. It does not check for every problematic path names (reserved
names on Windows, per-platform illegal characters, etc.) Those
restrictions are assumed to be handled when open() and similar
syscalls fail.

However, the objective of this check is to prevent malicious (or at
least unexpected), but legal, names from being used, namely:
  - names that contain a path separator,
  - empty names,
  - hidden names (starting with a dot).

Ideally, illegal names would be automatically escaped in the future.
This is, however, beyond the scope of this fix.

Jonathan Rajotte [Thu, 9 Aug 2018 21:21:40 +0000 (17:21 -0400)] 
Fix: Skip uid registry when metadata key value is 0

A value of 0 for the metadata key indicates that the metadata channel
was never created/pushed on the consumer side.

This can occur in scenario where a tracker(s) (vuid/vgid/vpid) is present.
The metadata channel might never be created/pushed since no applications
are actually tracing. Still, the uid registry exists due to the order
in which the sessiond received the client commands (create,
enable-channel, lttng track/untrack).

See included test for a complete reproducer.

trace-chunk: Introduce chunk "path", relayd session "ongoing_rotation", sessiond session "rotated"

This commit introduces new attributes in 3 different structures because
those are used in surrounding areas of the code.

Introduce a trace chunk path attribute which tracks where the chunk
currently keeps its files.

It allows updating the current chunk location with the "rename"
API without having to rely on changing the chunk name override,
which is an attribute we may want to keep using when we archive
the chunk.

Separating the "path" from the "name override" attribute allows
easy manipulation of the chunk output without having to keep the
name override around in the caller code.

Introduce an "ongoing_rotation" relayd session attribute to allow
live viewers to retry while a rotation is ongoing. This ongoing
rotation attribute is introduced in the same commit as the path
chunk attribute because they are used in a surrounding area of the code.

Introduce a "rotated" sessiond session attribute in this commit
because it is used in a surrounding area of the code. This rotated
attribute tracks whether an explicit rotation has been performed
on the session. It is a preparation step for the clear feature,
which will use this to figure out whether it needs to clear the
"root" output path (no rotation prior to clear") or if it needs
to clear to a new path. Before introduction of the clear feature,
a chunk_id of 0 was used to identify this, but because clear will
increment the chunk id without changing the path, we need to track
this explicitly through the "rotated" session flag.

Fix: consumerd: use packet sequence number for rotation position

Refer to "Fix: relayd: use packet sequence number for rotation position"
for context of this change.

This commit introduces the changes required in the consumerd.

Some notable points related to this commit:

- Internally, the rotate_position (per-stream) is now a 64-bit
  value rather than an unsigned long.
- The scheme to rotate a stream is changed to allow using the
  backward-compatible lttng_consumer_take_snapshot() rather than
  the newer lttng_consumer_get_produced_snapshot(), thus allowing
  backward compatibility of the implicit rotation on destroy with
  pre-2.10 lttng-modules.
- The rotate position used as pivot point for the rotation is
  based on the packet_seq_num of the last packet that has been
  send over the network by consumerd, incremented by the number of
  packets between the sampled produced_pos and the consumed_pos.
  In the worse case scenario where an overwrite mode ring buffer
  overwrites its contents enough to trigger a 4GB overflow on a
  32-bit producer since the last packet was sent (e.g. due to a
  slow network), the difference between produced_pos and
  consumed_pos will be lower that what would have been expected.
  However, because this pivot position is used as a lower bound,
  being smaller than the real value is fine: the data that would
  have been misplaced in the wrong trace chunk were actually
  overwritten, and will therefore never be consumed.
- When interacting with pre-2.8 lttng-modules, the packet sequence
  number is not available. The current approach is to disallow
  rotations performed on sessions which have kernel tracing active
  with a pre-2.8 lttng-modules.

Fix: relayd: per-pid live: no new metadata vs close

closed after an application exits. The live viewer observes that the
stream has no more data when getting the metadata returns 0 bytes.

3 years agoFix: relayd: use packet sequence number for rotation position
Mathieu Desnoyers [Tue, 5 Nov 2019 15:40:58 +0000 (10:40 -0500)] 
Fix: relayd: use packet sequence number for rotation position

The "network" sequence number (net_seq_num) is a 64-bit sequence number
tagging each packet sent over the network. The net_seq_num increments
monotonically (+1) for each packet sent from consumer daemon to relay
daemon, on a per-stream basis. It is tagged by the consumer daemon when
sending a trace packet to the relay daemon.

The LTTng kernel and user-space ring buffer "consumed position"
(consumed_pos) and "produced position" (produced_pos) are free-running
counters counting the number of bytes consumed and produced so far by
each stream. Because those counters are updated atomically, they are
limited to a size of 32-bit on 32-bit architectures.

The "packet" sequence number (packet_seq_num) is a sequence number
found in the packet header starting from LTTng 2.8. It is a 64-bit
sequence number assigned by the lttng-modules and lttng-ust ring
buffers. It increments monotonically (+1) for each packet produced
within a given ring buffer (stream).

Using produced_pos as rotation position and comparing it to the
net_seq_num has a few issues:

1) It breaks on 32-bit producers after generating more than 4GB of
   data per stream, due to overflow. The net_seq_num is a 64-bit
   counter, which does not overflow, but the produced_pos overflows
   after 4GB on 32-bit architectures. This can lead to never-completing

2) It breaks scenarios where ring buffers are configured in
   overwrite mode, and streaming to a relay daemon. Indeed, when
   the ring buffer moves the consumed_pos ahead, actually overwriting
   data within the ring buffer, it introduces an offset between the
   produced_pos and the net_seq_num. Therefore, if producers are
   generating a low- (or no-) throughput in some streams, the
   rotation may never complete, even on 64-bit architectures.

The solution proposed for this issue is to use the packet_seq_num as
rotation position rather than the net_seq_num. It takes care of
the two problematic scenarios, since the counter is always 64-bit
(even on 32-bit architectures), and because the counter is managed
by the producer, which therefore tracks progress of the ring buffer

This commit introduces changes required at the relayd side. A
separate commit introduces the changes required in the consumerd.

In relayd, one major restriction is the fact that the packet_seq_num
is not sent over the data socket, only through the control socket
receiving the indexes.

Therefore, in order to figure out the pivot position for the data
socket for a given stream, the associated index first needs to be
received. At that point, the corresponding net_seq_num is known,
which provides the pivot position for the data stream. Given that
the data and index sockets provide no ordering guarantees with
respect to their arrival, we handle the fact that data might have
been saved to disk in the wrong (previous) trace chunk by moving
it to the next trace chunk when the pivot position is known.

In order to allow "jumps" in the sequence numbers produced by
overwrite mode buffers, try_rotate_stream_index(), which previously
asserted that each sequence number was received in sequence, now
uses the packet_seq_num pivot position as a lower (inclusive) bound.

The issue here is the assert(), which just checks that the address
is not NULL, when it should actually check that the value is set.

The prior commit fixing optional.h to add proper parentheses to the
macro rightfully fails to compile this code. Fix the erroneous user.

Fix: optional.h macro missing parentheses and guards

The are a few coding style issues with optional.h which leads to
unexpected effects when the macros are used in the caller code.

All macro parameters need to be surrounded by () (except when used near
commas, which is the C operator with least precedence).

All macros that emit code need to be surrounded by do { } while (0) so
not to emit extra ; or omit ;, which can cause subtle issues when used
with if/else statements.

The new uuid helper library makes use of strnlen directly, which

Fix: make dist fails on sdt-probe test with autotools v1.16+

The 'dist' target fails when building with autotools 1.16.1 as the
behaviour of BUILT_SOURCES has changed in 1.16 [1].

BUILT_SOURCES are now built as part of the 'dist' target which causes
it to fail on machines that don't have dtrace installed.

The following error is produced: DTRACE foobar_provider.h /bin/sh: -s:
  command not found

The BUILT_SOURCES is skipped for build configurations where the build
of the test helper 'userspace-probe-sdt-binary' is disabled.

The resulting artifact, foobar_provider.h, is not part of the
distributed tarball (marked as nodist), so this doesn't have any
adverse effect.

present at some point in the future but might not be at the moment we

Add a retry phase to this step. It must succeed in the future.
