The storage is a 2 node cluster with hardware RAID1+0 and drbd.
I've created an LVM snapshot and ran xfs_check/xfs_repair. xfs_check
did report a few problems (unknown node type). After that I ran a
simple test: mount, calculate md5 of the problematic files, report
if it changed, umount, sleep 10 sec. That script reported that md5
sum of at least one file was changing on every cycle.
That sounds like you've got a dodgy drive.
That would be my guess too, however the problem occurs on both nodes
(i.e. it doesn't go away when the other node becomes active) and the
same files affected which makes hard drives or RAID controller or RAM
failure very unlikely.
Is there any way to perform a more thorough check, than xfs_check does?
