Issue/Introduction

When the mysqlbackup fails during the execution of post_olb_script, there is no event and alarm generated for the OnLineBackup (OLB).
The following alarm was expected:

The mysqlbackup is failing with errors that are logged in the $SPECROOT/SS-DB-Backup/ddm_backup.log file, but the $retval variable is returning 0 (successful), hence there is no error in the scheduled OnLineBackup (OLB).

Cause

We are not able to capture the error_code/exit_code from the ddm_save.pl script and pass to the post_olb_script which can detect the error and raises the OLB failure event and alarm.

Environment

Release : 10.4.1

Component : Spectrum Alarm & Event Management

Resolution

The following scripts need to be modified:

  • $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/ddm_save.pl
  • $SPECROOT/custom/CsScript/post_olb_script (change on this script is not mandatory)

 

In the $SPECROOT/SS/DDM/ddm_save.pl file:

Replace the lines 94 and 95 with the following entries:

    my $return_value=ddm_save();
    exit($return_value);

Replace the lines 174 to 177 with the following entries:

   my $exit_code=system($cmd);
 
   cleanup();
   exit($exit_code >> 8);

 

In the $SPECROOT/custom/CsScript/post_olb_script file - add the following entries on line 80 (Note this change is not mandatory, it is just to print the error code in the ddm_backup.log file):

 if [ retval -eq 0]
 then
  echo "ddm_save.pl/mysqlbackup is Successful !!!" >> $backup_dir/ddm_backup.log
 else
  echo "ddm_save.pl/mysqlbackup is failed with an error code : $retval" >> $backup_dir/ddm_backup.log
 fi

 

The changes in the scripts will be delivered in the upcoming Spectrum release.
