zfs-events - Events created by the ZFS filesystem.
Description of the different events generated by the ZFS stack. Most of these don't have any description. The events generated by ZFS have never been publicly documented. What is here is intended as a starting point to provide documentation for all possible events. To view all events created since the loading of the ZFS infrastructure (i.e, "the module"), run zpool events to get a short list, and zpool events -v to get a full detail of the events and what information is available about it. This man page lists the different subclasses that are issued in the case of an event. The full event name would be ereport.fs.zfs.SUBCLASS, but we only list the last part here. EVENTS (SUBCLASS) checksum Issued when a checksum error has been detected. io Issued when there is an I/O error in a vdev in the pool. data Issued when there have been data errors in the pool. deadman Issued when an I/O is determined to be "hung", this can be caused by lost completion events due to flaky hardware or drivers. See the zfs_deadman_failmode module option description for additional information regarding "hung" I/O detection and configuration. delay Issued when a completed I/O exceeds the maximum allowed time specified by the zio_slow_io_ms module option. This can be an indicator of problems with the underlying storage device. The number of delay events is ratelimited by the zfs_slow_io_events_per_second module parameter. config.sync Issued every time a vdev change have been done to the pool. zpool Issued when a pool cannot be imported. zpool.destroy Issued when a pool is destroyed. zpool.export Issued when a pool is exported. zpool.import Issued when a pool is imported. zpool.reguid Issued when a REGUID (new unique identifier for the pool have been regenerated) have been detected. vdev.unknown Issued when the vdev is unknown. Such as trying to clear device errors on a vdev that have failed/been kicked from the system/pool and is no longer available. vdev.open_failed Issued when a vdev could not be opened (because it didn't exist for example). vdev.corrupt_data Issued when corrupt data have been detected on a vdev. vdev.no_replicas Issued when there are no more replicas to sustain the pool. This would lead to the pool being DEGRADED. vdev.bad_guid_sum Issued when a missing device in the pool have been detected. vdev.too_small Issued when the system (kernel) have removed a device, and ZFS notices that the device isn't there any more. This is usually followed by a probe_failure event. vdev.bad_label Issued when the label is OK but invalid. vdev.bad_ashift Issued when the ashift alignment requirement has increased. vdev.remove Issued when a vdev is detached from a mirror (or a spare detached from a vdev where it have been used to replace a failed drive - only works if the original drive have been readded). vdev.clear Issued when clearing device errors in a pool. Such as running zpool clear on a device in the pool. vdev.check Issued when a check to see if a given vdev could be opened is started. vdev.spare Issued when a spare have kicked in to replace a failed device. vdev.autoexpand Issued when a vdev can be automatically expanded. io_failure Issued when there is an I/O failure in a vdev in the pool. probe_failure Issued when a probe fails on a vdev. This would occur if a vdev have been kicked from the system outside of ZFS (such as the kernel have removed the device). log_replay Issued when the intent log cannot be replayed. The can occur in the case of a missing or damaged log device. resilver.start Issued when a resilver is started. resilver.finish Issued when the running resilver have finished. scrub.start Issued when a scrub is started on a pool. scrub.finish Issued when a pool has finished scrubbing. scrub.abort Issued when a scrub is aborted on a pool. scrub.resume Issued when a scrub is resumed on a pool. scrub.paused Issued when a scrub is paused on a pool. bootfs.vdev.attach PAYLOADS This is the payload (data, information) that accompanies an event. For zed(8), these are set to uppercase and prefixed with ZEVENT_. pool Pool name. pool_failmode Failmode - wait, continue or panic. See zpool(8) (failmode property) for more information. pool_guid The GUID of the pool. pool_context The load state for the pool (0=none, 1=open, 2=import, 3=tryimport, 4=recover 5=error). vdev_guid The GUID of the vdev in question (the vdev failing or operated upon with zpool clear etc). vdev_type Type of vdev - disk, file, mirror etc. See zpool(8) under Virtual Devices for more information on possible values. vdev_path Full path of the vdev, including any -partX. vdev_devid ID of vdev (if any). vdev_fru Physical FRU location. vdev_state State of vdev (0=uninitialized, 1=closed, 2=offline, 3=removed, 4=failed to open, 5=faulted, 6=degraded, 7=healthy). vdev_ashift The ashift value of the vdev. vdev_complete_ts The time the last I/O completed for the specified vdev. vdev_delta_ts The time since the last I/O completed for the specified vdev. vdev_spare_paths List of spares, including full path and any -partX. vdev_spare_guids GUID(s) of spares. vdev_read_errors How many read errors that have been detected on the vdev. vdev_write_errors How many write errors that have been detected on the vdev. vdev_cksum_errors How many checksum errors that have been detected on the vdev. parent_guid GUID of the vdev parent. parent_type Type of parent. See vdev_type. parent_path Path of the vdev parent (if any). parent_devid ID of the vdev parent (if any). zio_objset The object set number for a given I/O. zio_object The object number for a given I/O. zio_level The indirect level for the block. Level 0 is the lowest level and includes data blocks. Values > 0 indicate metadata blocks at the appropriate level. zio_blkid The block ID for a given I/O. zio_err The errno for a failure when handling a given I/O. The errno is compatible with errno(3) with the value for EBADE (0x34) used to indicate ZFS checksum error. zio_offset The offset in bytes of where to write the I/O for the specified vdev. zio_size The size in bytes of the I/O. zio_flags The current flags describing how the I/O should be handled. See the I/O FLAGS section for the full list of I/O flags. zio_stage The current stage of the I/O in the pipeline. See the I/O STAGES section for a full list of all the I/O stages. zio_pipeline The valid pipeline stages for the I/O. See the I/O STAGES section for a full list of all the I/O stages. zio_delay The time elapsed (in nanoseconds) waiting for the block layer to complete the I/O. Unlike zio_delta this does not include any vdev queuing time and is therefore solely a measure of the block layer performance. zio_timestamp The time when a given I/O was submitted. zio_delta The time required to service a given I/O. prev_state The previous state of the vdev. cksum_expected The expected checksum value for the block. cksum_actual The actual checksum value for an errant block. cksum_algorithm Checksum algorithm used. See zfs(8) for more information on checksum algorithms available. cksum_byteswap Whether or not the data is byteswapped. bad_ranges [start, end) pairs of corruption offsets. Offsets are always aligned on a 64-bit boundary, and can include some gaps of non-corruption. (See bad_ranges_min_gap) bad_ranges_min_gap In order to bound the size of the bad_ranges array, gaps of non-corruption less than or equal to bad_ranges_min_gap bytes have been merged with adjacent corruption. Always at least 8 bytes, since corruption is detected on a 64-bit word basis. bad_range_sets This array has one element per range in bad_ranges. Each element contains the count of bits in that range which were clear in the good data and set in the bad data. bad_range_clears This array has one element per range in bad_ranges. Each element contains the count of bits for that range which were set in the good data and clear in the bad data. bad_set_bits If this field exists, it is an array of: (bad data & ~(good data)); that is, the bits set in the bad data which are cleared in the good data. Each element corresponds a byte whose offset is in a range in bad_ranges, and the array is ordered by offset. Thus, the first element is the first byte in the first bad_ranges range, and the last element is the last byte in the last bad_ranges range. bad_cleared_bits Like bad_set_bits, but contains: (good data & ~(bad data)); that is, the bits set in the good data which are cleared in the bad data. bad_set_histogram If this field exists, it is an array of counters. Each entry counts bits set in a particular bit of a big-endian uint64 type. The first entry counts bits set in the high-order bit of the first byte, the 9th byte, etc, and the last entry counts bits set of the low-order bit of the 8th byte, the 16th byte, etc. This information is useful for observing a stuck bit in a parallel data path, such as IDE or parallel SCSI. bad_cleared_histogram If this field exists, it is an array of counters. Each entry counts bit clears in a particular bit of a big-endian uint64 type. The first entry counts bits clears of the high-order bit of the first byte, the 9th byte, etc, and the last entry counts clears of the low-order bit of the 8th byte, the 16th byte, etc. This information is useful for observing a stuck bit in a parallel data path, such as IDE or parallel SCSI. I/O STAGES The ZFS I/O pipeline is comprised of various stages which are defined below. The individual stages are used to construct these basic I/O operations: Read, Write, Free, Claim, and Ioctl. These stages may be set on an event to describe the life cycle of a given I/O.
