Transfer hangs, both sides waiting on receive

Samba - rsync mailing list

We're encountering a rather weird, sporadic hang during a large-file
transfer. A bit of background on the setup:

 - Host A rsyncs a MySQL database from Host B. Both sides use rsync
   3.1.1 on Debian Jessie.

 - Host B serves the files using rsync --daemon from an ext4 filesystem
   residing on a thin LVM snapshot.

 - Host A uses the following command to rsync the files to a btrfs subvolume:
   rsync -og -avPH --log-file=/var/log/mysql-rsync.log --debug=ALL --chown=user:user --delete --inplace rsync://hostb.example.com/mysql/ /media/btrfs/db-snapshot-$$/mysql
   (I know parts of the command (-og + -a + --chown) don't make much
   sense :)

 - Both hosts sit on the same LAN, connected to a Juniper EX4200 stack
   with active-backup interfaces. MTU is standard 1500 and there are no
         known network issues. Host A has Intel I350 (igb) NICs, while Host B has
   BCM5709 (bnx2) NICs. Both hosts run Linux 3.16.36.

Once every few (~3-5) transfers, the rsync process hangs with both sides
waiting on select() on the TCP socket. From the transfer logs I can see
that the hang always happens when about to receive the same 32GB file,
already a couple of GBs into the total transfer.

Host A reports:

The worrysome part is the Send-Q on Host A, which last time contained 263392
unACK'd bytes. The rest of the queues involved were empty. tcpdump
reveals no retransmission attempts, only 2 window updates and a stream
of TCP keepalives after the point where the transfer halts:

From the backtraces it appears as though the sender is waiting for the
checksums the client has sent, while the client is waiting for the next file id
to come in. I can only assume the deadlock is because of the client's checksums
sitting in its Send-Q. The only potentially related part I can find in the
traffic captures are a couple of Zero Window responses by hostb, which however
are followed by window updates with non-zero sizes.

Any ideas or hints what else to look for?
