Yes, I was trying to think of scenarios and I think you are close,
that is likely the reason. The hammer cleanup code is only scanning
mounted PFSs. I verified this by umounting my /var/crash (which is
a PFS) and running hammer cleanup. It didn't check /var/crash's
So its not master/slave, it is simply whether the PFS is mounted or
not that is the problem.
This is definitely a bug. hammer cleanup needs to go through all
the PFSs. It would be a nice mini-programming-project for someone
who wants to fix it in the hammer utility.
I'm against hammer cleanup running on unmounted PFSs by default. What
else than not mounting it could be a clearer statement like "don't mess
with this in any way, please"?
All other file system related things in the system don't mess with
unmounted file systems.
I suggest making this a periodic(8) option which the user can turn on if
it is wanted.
