[XEN PATCH] tools/xenstore: Log xenstored build ID on startup

Posted by Bjoern Doebel 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Right now we do not have a mechanism to determine the version of the
currently running xenstored at runtime. As xenstored runs throughout the
lifetime of a Xen host, this may lead to problems when newer user space
builds are staged. Then, the running xenstored will no longer match the
version of the installed xenstored.

To allow users to always identify the running version of xenstored, add
a linker-generated unique build ID to every xenstored build. Add
functionality to log this build ID into a file upon service startup.

In general I don't like the approach using a file for this purpose.
In case there is no generic solution possible, I'd rather have a
XS_CONTROL sub command to get the current version from Xenstore. This
will then at once cover xenstore-stubdom, too.

Your suggestion further down will apparently help for stubdom. I do not 
speak ocaml at all - how do we address this?

CC'ing Edwin and Christian who have done the bulk of the oxenstored
recently.

It sounds like it might not be possible right now, but would be possible
with a future plan to switch the Ocaml build system over to dune (the
new/preferred Ocaml upstream toolchain).

If it does end up being an XS_CONTROL sub-op, we can implement it at a
future point when we can usefully answer the question.

See here what is possible with Dune:
https://dune.readthedocs.io/en/stable/dune-libs.html#build-info

Would the output of 'git describe --always --dirty' (perhaps combined
with a build date) serve as a useful build ID?

Wouldn't using readelf on /proc/<pid>/exe give you the running buildid?

readelf -a /usr/sbin/oxenstored /proc/$(pidof oxenstored)/exe | grep
'Build ID'
    Build ID: bdd5304c8984ed22570d51308ae8717d03fe60ae
    Build ID: bdd5304c8984ed22570d51308ae8717d03fe60ae

readelf -a /usr/sbin/oxenstored /proc/$(pidof oxenstored)/exe | grep
'Build ID'
    Build ID: b44ff99b216db7526e3ee7841068d584cc9c2b95
    Build ID: bdd5304c8984ed22570d51308ae8717d03fe60ae


When you're inside a stubdom it is probably not so easy though.

The point of the build ID is to verify something like 
"binary-equivalence" of two builds.

* a git hash is not sufficient because different git hashes may result 
in the same binary to be created (i.e., if there is no code change in 
the target binary in between those two builds)

* a time stamp is counter-productive, because then you'd have to 
recreate this timestamp every time you want to re-create a build

GNU ld's --build-id claims to perform a checksumming of the "normative 
parts of the output contents". Whatever that means. ;)

Interesting. I had not considered that because after upgrading xenstored 
to a different version, the running xenstored's /proc/$PID/exe shows as

# ls -l /proc/$(pgrep xenstored)/exe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Nov  9 14:06 /proc/3528/exe -> 
/usr/sbin/xenstored (deleted)

But you are right, one can still read that procfs file. Nice!

How about keeping such an ID in xenstore itself in some kind of /meta hierarchy where xenstore could also keep stats? As long xenstore is running this information is easily accessible for outside tools.

I understand the problem you're trying to solve, but why is this
anything more than just enabling build-id's by default across tools/ ?

There are already standard ways of interacting with the build id of
running executables on the system.  I'd strongly discourage doing
anything custom in xenstored specifically.

Amongst other things, yes.  Although as Juergen points out, we want
something which works with stub domains as well, and "normal userspace
tools" won't cut it there.

I still think a first patch in this series should be to turn build-id's
on by default if supported by the toolchain, generally.

Since in the hypervisor build we're careful to not use --build-id
