lxc fails

Hi there,

I've been able to install/activate/start my LXC based application on IOx until recently. I was hoping that someone might point me in the direction of what to look at that could help me diagnose its issue. The app appears to start up and then, within a few seconds, it stops with an exit code of 1 - which of course could be anything.

If I use the "system troubleshoot" page of the Local Manager UI, the CAF log reports activation and startup of my app. There is a worrying message around SIGTERM not killing the process, but I'm unsure if that's the issue:

2018-03-20 22:15:35,055 [runtime.hosting:INFO] [CP Server Thread-10] [platformcapabilities.py:227 - check_disk_status()] Calling disk status script: /home/root/iox/caf/scripts/disk_status.sh

...and then about a second later my program is stopped:

So why was the app attempting to restart? Where should I look next as none of the other logs are yielding anything obviously interesting.

Thanks for your guidance.

Kind regards,

Christopher

Hi Christopher,

You may also access the app console to see what happened for the LXC and the running software.

See the part of "How to access application console?" in https://developer.cisco.com/docs/iox/#troubleshooting-guide/troubleshooting-guide.

Re: lxc fails

I should add that non of the app's logs yield anything interesting to me (container log):

I do note that syslog reports a problem eth0, and there was some configuration done with the 829 yesterday (my app requires eth0 as per its package.yaml):

Re: lxc fails

Thanks for the reply Steve. I should have mentioned that I tried that. Unfortunately, the app doesn't stay up long enough to be able to - even when I activate it with debug.

Re: lxc fails

It turns out that I used `debug` as an argument to activation, and not `--debug`. I was able to login to the app after all, and discovered my issue. Thanks.
