Vdbench: Slave aborting: Shutdown took more than three minutes
By Henk Vandenbergh on Apr 08, 2009
At the end of 'elapsed=' seconds, Vdbench tells its i/o threads to no longer start new i/o.
Vdbench however gives its i/o threads a maximum of three minutes to allow the i/o's that are still outstanding to complete. If after these three minutes the i/o still is not completed Vdbench will abort with "Slave aborting: Shutdown took more than three minutes".
Usual cause of this problem is a device and/or storage controller that is no longer responding to i/o.
