I ran into a possible XFS bug while doing some Oracle benchmarking.  My test
system is running a 3.14.0-rc3+ kernel built from the for-next branch of
on 2014-02-19 (last commit 1342f11e713792e53e4b7aa21167fe9caca81c4a).

The XFS instance in question is 200 GB and should have all default
parameters (mkfs.xfs /dev/mapper/<my_lun_partition>).  It contains Oracle
binaries and trace files.  At the time the issue occurred I had been
running Oracle with SQL*NET server tracing enabled.  The affected XFS
had filled up 100% with trace files several times; I was periodically
executing rm -f * in the trace file directory, which would reduce the
file system occupancy from 100% to 3%.  I had an Oracle load generating
tool running, so new log files were being created with some frequency.

The issue occurred during one of my rm -f * executions; afterwards the
file system would only produce errors.  Here is the traceback:

This is very interesting. From your first occurrence of the problem, there
are 3 groups of duplicate allocated blocks in AG14. Remove both
duplicates and the XFS_WANT_CORRUPTED_GOTO is triggered.

In the first group, inode 940954751 maps fsb 58817713 for a length of 1920
and most of these blocks are allocated elsewhere in small lengths.

In the second group, inode 940954759 is maps fsb 58822053 for a length 39,
and most of these blocks are allocated elsewhere.

In the third group there are smaller (1, 2, 3, 10) blocks of overlaps.
The last 2 blocks of this group are allocated to inode 941385832 and are
also listed as being free in the cntbr/bnobt at the same time.

To make things more interesting, there a several cases where the first inode
of an inode chunk has a single block mapped and that block is a duplicate for
another active inode chunk block. Example of this is inode 941083520 maps
fsb 58817724, but that block is also the inode chunk for inodes starting
at 941083584.

The earlier found interesting duplicate is the user data block, fsb
58836692 in inode 941386494 that is also a directory block 11 in inode
940862056. The user block was written last which is now garbage for the

I don't know any more why we are duplicate mapping.
